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 course they’ve earned a ‘F’ or ‘D’ in during the semester of suspension . Students can 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.
DUAL CREDIT OVERLOAD
Dual Credit students are limited to 2 dual credit courses per semester. Permission for additional courses will be granted if the student has a cumulative college GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Tips for Success in your dual credit college course:
1. Know your professor's name! It is important to know who your professor is and how to get in contact with them should you have questions.
2. Show up for class on time and be engaged! Have your pen, pencils, paper and textbooks each day. Participate in class discussions and ask questions.
3. Review your course syllabus. Jot down assignment due dates and test dates on a calendar. Make up work is usually not an option, so don't be late. Turn in all assignments on time and in the format requested (via BlackBoard, email or in person).
4. Learn how to log into BlackBoard and WebACCess. Instructions are available under our "Forms" tab.
5. Check and read your email! Email is the official form of communication. If you're not checking or reading it, you are missing out on valuable information.
6. Attend tutorials when available or plan to visit with your professor during their office hours for assistance.
7. Keep up with all graded material. You should always know how you are doing in your class. Be sure to write your grades on your syllabus and keep up with your average. Request feedback from your professor when you have questions about a grade or if you haven't received a grade.
8. Do not cheat! Do your own work and properly site the work of others that you use.
9. Study, study, study! Do not wait until the last minute to complete an assignment, prepare a paper, or study for an exam. Time management is necessary for success.
10. Believe that you can succeed, implement successful behavior, and you will succeed!

Read how Dual Credit helped 2011 Dawson High School Graduate,
"I know you usually don't hear too much about the success of your past students, but I wanted to pass on some information to you regarding Haley. Since she graduated in 2011, she has worked really hard at Baylor and will be graduating this May, in 3 years, on the Dean's list. She was able to do this by capitalizing on the college credits she earned her Junior and Senior year at Dawson. It allowed her to enter into college with a semester already behind her, and not to mention, saved us half a year of tuition! Years ago, I was hesitant about her taking Dual Credit courses while in high school because I thought that they would be too much with her other class load. I am so glad now that she did. She has really benefited from the credits and it is truly a money saver on University tuition." - Sandra Peck
