Dual Credit Information

Dual credit courses at McKinney High School are offered through Collin College. For parents new to the world of “dual credit,” the dual credit program allows high school students to take Collin College courses and receive credit both for their high school diploma and their college degree.  Courses may be taught on the high school or the college campus by Collin College professors.

Step 2:

Step 3: IMPORTANT!!!
