Students in Dual Enrollment classes are enrolled at Bishop Lynch High School and Eastfield College, simultaneously receiving credit at both levels. Students never have to leave the high school campus because both our instructors and curriculum are accredited at the college level.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? All students with a 3.0 (80%) GPA or higher are eligible. Students must demonstrate their readiness for college level courses via the state mandated TSI test or be exempt by having scored a 480 EBRW/520 Math on the SAT, a composite 23 (minimum 19 English/19 Math) on the ACT or a 460 EBRW/510 Math on the PSAT.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE FOR APPLYING? Students must complete and submit an application packet to the Bishop Lynch Guidance Department.
WHAT IS THE COST? There is no additional cost for taking a dual enrolled class at Bishop Lynch.
WILL MY CREDIT TRANSFER? All Texas state universities and many private and out-of-state colleges accept credits from Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD).
“Dual enrollment at Bishop Lynch was a huge benefit as I entered my freshman year at Texas A&M. Taking only 12 hours per semester (versus 15) is enabling me to focus on the rigors of school as I pursue a degree in aerospace engineering. I have been able to maintain my academic standards while also participating in many extracurricular activities around campus. Dual enrollment enabled me to register for classes as a sophomore ahead of many thousands of freshmen. Not to mention, I was even able to get my football ticket a day before all freshmen and sit closer to the field to watch the Aggies! ”
