Dual Credit Student

Earn College Credit

The dual credit program at San Jacinto College offers homeschooled students an opportunity to earn college credit while still at a high school level. By participating in the program, you can get a head start on their college education and save money by getting ahead with your credits. Make an appointment with the Dual Credit department to find out more.

How to Apply

To participate in the dual credit program, homeschooled students must meet the same requirements as dual credit students enrolled in public or private high schools. This means that students must follow the same process of admittance to the College and provide a high school transcript to document their status as a homeschooled student.
  1. Apply online

    To start, complete your full profile and the application. Your application will be processed within 72 hours. After that, you'll be emailed your San Jac Student ID number (example: G0100123).

  2. Meet the Texas Success Initiative Assessment (TSIA) requirements

    • All students must take the TSIA or prove an exemption or waiver in the areas of reading, writing, and math.
      • An exemption permanently exempts a student from taking the TSIA.
      • A waiver temporarily waives the requirement while the student is in high school.
    • Testing may be available at your high school.

  3. Submit medical paperwork

    All incoming Texas college students must receive a vaccination or booster against bacterial meningitis.

    • Shot records or exemption forms should be emailed to or faxed to 281-669-4720. Include your student ID (G number) in the email.

  4. Register for classes

    Web registration is not available for dual credit students. To register, complete a Dual Credit/Early Admission Enrollment Permission Form and contact the Dual Credit Office on your campus.

  5. Pay tuition

    • To remain in your classes, you must pay your portion of tuition by the college's posted deadline.
    • Payment can be made through your Secure Online System (S.O.S.) account or in-person at the college's Business Office.
    • Installment plans are available.

  6. Prepare for class!

    • Get your San Jac ID card from the Admissions Office.
    • Get your San Jac parking permit from the Business Office.
    • Purchase textbooks from the San Jac bookstore or your preferred retailer.
    • Set up your San Jac S.O.S., email, and Blackboard accounts.
