Dual Credit Information
ATTENTION: Students interested in Dual Credit classes for Fall 2024
To qualify to enroll in Dual Credit classes, students must apply to NLC by the deadline, March 19, 2024 and turn in the required paperwork (Student/Parent Consent Forms and Residency Questionnaire) to Mrs. Phillips by Wednesday, March 20, 2024.
Students must also have qualifying scores to be enrolled, so we first consider the PSAT and SAT scores for qualification.
Students who do not have qualifying scores through any of those tests also have the opportunity to qualify by taking the TSAI2 test on campus on Monday, April 15, 2024.
If you are interested in testing, please see the TSIA2 resources here.
ATTENTION GRADUATING SENIORS - CLASS OF 2024:
If you have taken DC classes through NLC, please read the following important information about obtaining your college transcript from Northeast Lakeview College:
I have linked instructions on how graduating seniors can request their dual credit transcript to be sent to their college/university. Spring grades and GPAs will be available to students in late May, but they will not be able to make their transcript request until the week of June 15 after Ms. DeMont, the NLC High School Programs Coordinator, collects and processes their final high school transcripts. She will be doing that the week of June 7.
Ms.DeMont's contact information is listed on the guide attached, so students may contact her with questions.
Additionally, if your university requires that you send their admissions office your TSIA2 Score Report, please log on to Accuplacer Student Portal to request your Score Report. You will need your Student ID, which is your Banner ID, if you tested for DC purposes.
Have a great summer and Go KNIGHTS

Application Process for the Dual Credit Program
Please download and complete the Apply Texas Guide and these forms to start applying for the upcoming school year, 2024-2025. Begin the application process by applying to NLC through goApplyTexas.org. The last few pages of the attachment provide the instructions for applying to NLC. Make sure to select the appropriate semester for which you will be entering the program.
Students may apply for Dual Credit courses in the spring of their sophomore year, so that they may start the program as juniors. In our district, students begin DC courses as juniors. Additionally, once a student is registered in any DC course, they are in the program until they graduate or withdraw from their course(s). There is no need to reapply.
Reach out to me at email@example.com if you have any questions as you complete the process.
Deadlines for each of the steps of the application process:
1. Apply through goApplyTexas.org -- January 10 - March 19. THIS IS A FIRM DEADLINE.
Once the application is complete, there is a turnaround time of 3-5 business days for NLC to receive the application and provide Banner IDs, passwords/logins to high school coordinator to provide to students. Plan for this turnaround time and work ahead of the deadline.
2 Complete both forms and return or email to firstname.lastname@example.org -- March 20.
Once the student receives the Banner ID, he/she can complete the forms and return them to me.
3. Complete AlamoEnroll modules -- March 22.
NLC will email each student, who successfully applies and completes the forms, information on completing the modules.
4. April 15: TSIA2 testing* is scheduled for those who need qualifying scores.
If testing is necessary for Reading/Writing and/or Math, we will schedule an in-person TSI testing session.
*Students who qualify based on their PSAT/SAT scores will not need to TSIA2 test. We have scheduled testing on campus for March 26 for students who need to TSIA2 test for Reading/Writing and/or Math.
***Please make sure to sign up for DC courses through your counselor and complete the process if interested in taking DC courses for the upcoming year. Doing so allows me to know who is interested and who may need to test.
