Dual Credit Information
ATTENTION: Students interested in Dual Credit classes for Fall 2022
In order to qualify to enroll in Dual Credit classes, students must apply to NLC by the deadline, February 11, 2022 and turn in the required paperwork to Mrs. Phillips by February 25, 2022.
Students must have qualifying scores in order to register successfully, and we first consider the PSAT and SAT scores for qualification.
Students who do not have qualifying scores through any of those tests also have the opportunity to qualify by taking the TSAI2 test on campus on Tuesday, March 22, 2022.
If you are interested in testing, please see the TSIA2 resources here.
ATTENTION GRADUATING SENIORS - CLASS OF 2022:
If you have taken DC classes through NLC, please read the following important information about obtaining your college transcript from Northeast Lakeview College:
I have linked instructions on how graduating seniors can request their dual credit transcript to be sent to their college/university. Spring grades and GPAs will be available to students on May 31, but they will not be able to make their transcript request until the week of June 15 after Ms. DeMont, the NLC High School Programs Coordinator, collects and processes their final high school transcripts. She will be doing that the week of June 7.
Ms. DeMont's contact information is listed on the guide attached, so students may contact her with questions.
Additionally, if your university requires that you send their admissions office your TSIA2 Score Report, you may log on to Accuplacer.org and obtain it there. If you took the TSI test with us at Steele and need additional assistance, please contact me at email@example.com early this summer! I can usually obtain the Score Report for you.
Have a great summer and Go KNIGHTS!
Dear Future Dual Credit Student and Parent,
On Tuesday, March 22, we will be TSIA2 testing students who have applied to Northeast Lakeview College and wish to take Dual Credit courses. Our testing will take place on the Byron P. Steele II campus and will start at the beginning of the day at 8:40 am. Please arrive to school promptly and to first period on this date.
In order to be able to TSIA2 test, students should have completed the AlamoEnroll modules and completed and turned in their Dual Credit forms to Mrs. Phillips. Students received their ACES username, password, and Banner ID either from Ms. DeMont, the High School Programs Coordinator at NLC, or from me. Please check the email used to apply through goApplyTexas.org for this information if you did not receive this information from me while on campus.
The TSIA2 tests college-readiness, so if you did not take the PSAT/SAT with us at Steele or if your PSAT/SAT scores were not qualifying, you will receive a pass to test in a computer lab. When you receive the pass, please make your way immediately to the computer lab listed on the pass.
If you are a remote learner, please arrive early, check in through the front office, and meet in the Downstairs F Gallery waiting area. Once you arrive to the downstairs F Gallery, please check in with Ms. Biggs, the F Gallery secretary, and she will let you know the computer lab in which you will be testing. Remote learners, please also bring your phone so you can contact your parent to pick you up after you are finished testing.
Please bring your ACES username and password and Banner ID, so that you can log in easily. You might also consider bringing a lunch on this date. After you are finished with the test, you will either return to class or return home.
I look forward to helping you in this process, and we’ll see you on Tuesday, March 22 for the TSIA2 test.
We are proud to be partnered with Northeast Lakeview College to offer Dual Credit courses on our high school campus!

Application Process for the Dual Credit program
Please download and complete these forms to get started in applying for the upcoming school year, 2022-2023. Begin the application process by applying to NLC through goApplyTexas.org. The last few pages of the attachment provide the instructions for applying to NLC. Make sure to select the appropriate semester for which you will be entering the program.
Students may apply for Dual Credit courses the spring of their sophomore year, so that they may start the program as juniors. In our district, students begin DC courses as juniors. Additionally, once a student is registered in any DC course, they are in the program until they graduate or withdraw from their course(s). There is no need to reapply.
Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions as you complete the process.
Deadlines for each of the steps of the application process:
1. Apply through goApplyTexas.org -- January 24 - February 11. THIS IS A FIRM DEADLINE!!
Once the application is complete, there is a turnaround time of 3-5 business days for NLC to receive the application and provide Banner IDs, passwords/logins to high school coordinator to provide to students. Plan for this turnaround time and work ahead of the deadline.
2 Complete both forms and return or email to email@example.com -- February 25
Once the student receives the Banner ID, he/she can complete the forms and return them to me.
3. Complete AlamoEnroll modules -- March 11
I will email each student who successfully applies and completes the forms information on completing the modules.
4. March 22: TSIA2 testing* is scheduled for those who need qualifying scores.
If testing is necessary for Reading/Writing and/or Math, we will schedule an in-person TSI testing session.
*Students who qualify based on their PSAT/SAT scores will not need to TSIA2 test. We have scheduled testing on campus for March 22 for students who need to TSIA2 test for Reading/Writing and/or Math.
***Please make sure to sign up for DC courses through your counselor and complete the process if interested in taking DC courses for the upcoming year. Doing so allows me to know who is interested and who may need to test.
