Student Benefits

College Credit!

Dual Credit students can earn college credit while still in high school. As an accredited four-year university, UTRGV awards credit that is accepted at all Texas public institutions of higher learning and most private and out-of-state colleges and universities.

Scholarship Opportunities!

Completing Dual Credit courses at UTRGV with a high grade point average may provide you with academic recognition that could open the door for academic programs and scholarship opportunities. Also, only Dual Credit students have an opportunity to earn one of the highly competitive University Scholars scholarships!

No Tuition Costs!

Thanks to the Dual Credit MOU between participating school districts and UTRGV, students can take advantage of high quality education at no cost to participating students! That's right, there will be no tuition charged for these courses, but any other cost associated with attending will be the responsibility of the student.

Access to a Wide Selection of Courses!

As a Dual Credit student you will be eligible to take courses from our 42-hour Core Curriculum! All students at UTRGV must complete the Core Curriculum before they can advance to their Academic Major courses, so that means you get an early start!
