Dual Credit

  • Dual-Credit and Articulated courses are unique opportunities for students to participate in instructional environments taught at the collegiate level.

    Articulation courses are high school courses that contain the same course content as an equivalent college course, and for which a post-secondary institution has agreed to award college credit if the student meets requirements as outlined in the course articulation analysis. Most articulation courses require the student to maintain and complete the course with an 85 or better.

    In order for a student to receive Dual Credit (High School Credit and College Credit), they must meet the entrance requirements set forth by the Higher Education Board and El Paso Community College (EPCC). The student must also be enrolled in the CCTE course and the EPCC course simultaneously.
