In the Fall, Roosevelt High School will offer dual credit classes through South Plains College. A student enrolled in a dual credit course receives academic credit for both high school and college courses upon successful completion. Each course is one semester in length. Registration for Spring classes will occur in November.
What is Needed to Take Dual Credit?
Students in any Dual Credit course are to show college readiness by successfully completing the TSI (Texas Success Initiative) prior to registration. However, due to COVID-19 and school closures, a student who completes Freshman and Sophomore Math, Science, History and/or English with an “80” or above, has an overall GPA of “80” or above, AND has approval from a school administrator, will be eligible to take the corresponding class. Dual Credit courses are more rigorous than high school courses, and students are expected to devote more time outside of class to complete coursework and meet deadlines.
Students who have completed a dual credit course have already shown TSI eligibility and are not required to meet additional criteria.
What Dual Credit Classes are Available at My School?
Currently, Roosevelt offers three dual credit classes taught by teachers on campus, and the remaining courses are online only.

When Can I Register?
Students will indicate on their 2020-2021 Schedule Request Form their desire to take a Dual Credit course. Once your student is enrolled in a dual credit course, they must abide by the SPC withdrawal and drop dates. Students who do not withdraw by the SPC drop date may still be responsible for tuition.
