Dual Credit

Get a Jump Start on College

The COM Dual Credit Program enables students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Dual credit students can earn 30 or more college credits while in high school, plus they receive a discount on COM’s affordable tuition.

Students can take academic courses, such as math, English, government and history, and hands-on classes, such as drafting, welding, graphic arts and cosmetology.

Classes are offered at the COM main campus, COM Learning Center-North County in League City and at local high schools.
