Dual Credit Early Admission Program

Introducing the Dual Credit Early Admission Program

Our Dual Credit Early Admission Program offers an opportunity for high school students to earn credits toward a college degree while completing requirements for high school graduation.

The program is not designed to supplant that of the high school, but is structured to permit selected students to make more constructive use of their time. Admission to the College does not guarantee enrollment in all courses.

Escrow Credit

College credit will be transcripted but held in escrow until the student furnishes an official transcript from the high school showing that he/she has graduated.

Institutional Agreement

Panola College claims funding for all high school students earning concurrent (dual) credit based on an agreement between the Commissioners of Education and Higher Education. Upon affixing the required signatures on the Dual Credit/Early Admission Permission Form, the high school establishes a valid agreement with Panola College for the student during the specified semester..
