Requirements:  Students must have a 2.0 or better GPA in completed coursework to take 2 dual credit courses per semester or a 3.0 GPA to take 3 dual credit courses per semester. 

 

What are the steps to taking Dual Credit at CVHS?

1.        See Ms. Rath if you are interested in taking Dual Credit.

2.        Apply to Blinn College Station ISD at www.applytexas.org   You can not proceed with the process until             this is submitted and your Blinn ID is received.  Once you receive your acceptance at Blinn, you will                 need to activate your MyBlinn account.

3.        Once the student receives their Blinn ID number, they will fill out the Dual Credit Approval Form. 

4.        Satisfy Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements.  This includes taking the Pre-Assessment activity.

5.        Submit a picture for your Blinn ID.

8.        Student and Parent both sign CVHS dual credit contract.

 

What does DUAL CREDIT cost?

At this time, CVHS will pay tuition and textbook costs.  Current tuition costs are $318 per semester class. (This is a price break from regular Blinn tuition of $474 per course).  If a student fails a course (grade below 70), the student will be responsible for 100% reimbursement of the course to CVHS.  If a student drops a course prior to the end of the semester, the student will be responsible for the remaining difference of the balance of the refund to CVHS.  For example, if CVHS is refunded 75% of the course cost, the student would owe 25% reimbursement to CVHS. 

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Parents:  Once a student takes a college course, parents do not have access to their child’s records unless a FERPA Release waiver is signed and on file with the college.

Students:  Once your ApplyTexas application is submitted, you will need to check your email within 48 hours for your MyBlinn account.  You may need to check your Spam or Junk mail folder if you do not find it in your incoming mail folder.

 

TSIA – Texas Success Initiative Assessment

Each student applying for Dual Credit must prove they are college ready by either having required scores on the ACT/SAT/PSAT or the TSIA.  Students may use the STAAR EOC English II and Algebra I scores for dual credit.  Please see the sheet titled “Test Scores for Dual Credit” for the scores needed.

Students taking PSYC, ARTS, HIST, GOVT, or ECON will need to prove college readiness on the Reading test.  Students taking any MATH course must prove college readiness on the Math test.  Students taking ENGL must show college readiness on both the Reading and Writing exams.

If a student does not qualify for dual credit on their SAT/ACT/PSAT/EOC scores, then they are required to take the TSIA.  College View HS is a TSI test center.  There is no cost for CVHS students to take the test on our campus.   However, you may also take the test at the Blinn Campus, but there will be a $45 cost.  You would need to contact Blinn College for test dates.

Before a student can take the TSIA, they must take the Pre-Assessment Activity and print the certificate of completion to give to Ms. Rath or send an email copy to [email protected]  This needs to be done at least one day prior to testing.  The Pre-Assessment Activity link is https://practice.accuplacer.org/login

 Testing Dates: To be determined.  Check Student Activities Calendar
