Dual Credit Partnership Program @ FPC
The Dual-Credit Program is a cooperative partnership between a high school and Frank Phillips College through which a student will be awarded both college and high school credit in courses that meet the requirements for both institutions. Students who meet specific eligibility requirements for both the high school and Frank Phillips College are permitted to enroll in Frank Phillips Dual Credit courses specified in the dual-credit agreement.
The Frank Phillips Dual Credit Program is governed by rules of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and the Texas Education Agency and Amarillo College.

College courses often require three to four hours of study time each week depending on the credit hour of each course. College course content is not modified to accommodate high school students. Dual credit students are expected to maintain equivalent coursework to college students.
Students attending Frank Phillips College are expected to maintain high standards of personal and scholarly conduct. This includes Dual Credit Students.
