The Richland College Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment Program provides a rare opportunity for bright, capable, and motivated high school students to receive college credit while they are still enrolled in high school. One of the goals of the program is to provide a positive collegiate learning experience for participating high school juniors and seniors.

Enrollment in college courses, especially during the senior year, allows a student to avoid the part of American high school culture known as the "senior slump." While enjoying the traditional ceremonies and rites of passage that accompany the senior year, qualifying students may also enroll in college freshman level courses that will apply toward an Associate’s Degree and/or university transfer. This saves time and money for students and parents.

All high school students enrolled in college classes are held accountable to policies, rules, and regulations of the Dallas County Community College District.
