Humble ISD offers a Dual Credit Summer Academy in partnership with local community colleges to allow students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit in the summer. Students receive high school credit on their transcripts if they earn a C or higher in a course, as well as receiving college credit transcripted through the partner community college. We are thrilled to partner with both San Jacinto College and Lone Star College to provide these courses 100% online this summer.
Course Selection for the 2023 Dual Credit Summer Academy will open March 6.

Course Selection March 6 - 31:
Course selection for Dual Credit Summer Academy 2023 will begin March 6. Students should first contact their school counselor or dual credit liaison (high school only) to process the Exceptional Admission form needed to register (must meet eligibility via ACT, SAT, PSAT/NMSQT, or TSIA2). Then visit the Dual Credit Summer Academy website for further registration information.
Lone Star College and San Jacinto College have test score requirements for students to enroll in classes. Any student who has not yet met college-ready testing requirements may take the TSIA2 test through the partner college, or on specific Saturdays in Humble ISD. High school dual credit liaisons and 8th grade counselors can assist parents in getting students set up to take the TSIA2 test if needed.
At the conclusion of a course and after grades are posted, students will need to send their Lone Star or San Jacinto College transcripts to their high school registrar so that grades can be added to their high school transcript. Students should be aware that final college grades are translated over using the following formula: A=95, B= 85, C= 77, D= 73, F= 65. All courses offered in the Dual Credit Summer Academy provide weighted grade points on the high school transcript.
In the event a student is unable to complete the course, students should follow the Lone Star or San Jacinto College course drop guidelines and timelines to avoid potential negative impacts to their college GPA.
