What is Dual Credit? It is a program through which learners earn both high school and college credit in approved courses. Courses approved for dual credit can be found on the New Tech High @ Coppell website under the counseling tab.
Which College Provides Dual Credit Courses for NTH@C? New Tech learners take dual credit courses through Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD) without paying tuition and fees. The learner is responsible for buying textbooks and materials. North Lake College is our primary DCCCD Campus; however, Brookhaven also offers a few courses and programs to CISD learners.

Learners are entitled to one college release period for each dual credit course. Learners may take up to 1 additional release period for travel.
