2017-2018 Testing information and Score Requirements
Dual Credit Academic Standards:
The college cumulative GPA will be calculated at the completion of each semester. Students whose college cumulative GPA is below 2.0, will be suspended from taking additional dual credit classes for one long semester (Fall or Spring); however, a student may retake only the courses in which an ‘F’ or a ‘D’ has been earned during the semester of suspension. Students may be reinstated the following semester. After completing classes during the reinstated semester, if the semester GPA remains below 2.0, future participation in the Dual Credit program will be prohibited.
Students must earn a C or higher in Foreign Language Classes prior to moving to the next level.
House Bill 505:
House Bill 505 removed limitations on the number of classes a student may take. However, Alvin Community College recommends that students taking more than three classes per semester do so only under the recommendation or advisement of the ACC Advisor or the High School Counselor.
