Concurrent and Dual Credit Enrollment Programs (A-50)
Original Implementation: July 27, 1999
Last Revision: July 17, 2012
High school students with superior academic ability and achievement may be admitted to Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) and enroll in college courses while completing their high school studies under the concurrent and dual credit enrollment programs. The concurrent and dual credit enrollment programs are open to high school students (grades 9-12) who have obtained a minimum grade average of 85. In addition, students must submit a minimum composite score of 1010 on the SAT (not including the writing) or 21 on the ACT (not including the writing). Students must meet Texas Success Initiative requirements to register for reading and writing intensive courses, as well as math courses. A recommendation by the student's high school principal or high school counselor must be submitted as well.
The dual credit enrollment program requires that the grade from the SFA course be used for completion of high school graduation requirements and college credit. The cost of the dual credit enrollment program will be established by the SFA Board of Regents. The concurrent enrollment program requires that the grade from the SFA course be used for college credit only. High school credit is not earned through this program. The cost of the concurrent enrollment program is full price for tuition and fees.
