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, science and history, and hands-on classes, such as drafting, welding, graphic arts and cosmetology.

From a Student

“Dual credit eased me into (college), and what I like about COM especially is the professors are truly there for their students. I started (at UTSA) as a sophomore."
