Dual Credit - Pathways to a Brighter Tomorrow

Dual credit allows high school students to earn college credit and high school credit concurrently. Cisco College partners with more than 40 regional high schools to deliver a quality college education for a fraction of typical college and university tuition costs. Dual credit serves to expand academic options for college-bound students and familiarize them early with college curriculum and expectations.

The Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees are general studies degrees designed for transfer to a university or for students seeking a 2-year general education degree. Students may complete an A.A. degree or A.S. degree with an emphasis in their area of academic interest or intended major after transferring to a 4-year university.

The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree is designed for students seeking a 2-year degree in a technical, health sciences, or workforce program.
