Level of Commitment
The Dual Credit Advantage Program is broken down into three levels of commitment. We ask our students/parents to choose one of the levels as they start thinking about taking dual credit courses. The number of total courses/credit hours is calculated over the student's high school career. Dual Credit courses are two class periods, and usually Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. We recommend that students take a minimum of 2 Dual Credit courses a semester.
Forney Education Foundation Advantage PLUS Scholarship
The Forney Education Foundation is proud to offer a Dual Credit Advantage PLUS Scholarship to high school students who enroll in and qualify for Dual Credit Courses with Eastfield College. The goal of the Dual Credit Advantage PLUS Scholarship is to increase opportunities for Forney ISD students to reach their full potential by opening doors in high school that help a broad and diverse range of students transition into post-secondary education.Students that qualify for the Dual Credit Advantage Plus Scholarship only pay half of the tuition for each Dual Credit Advantage class, up to four classes per school year. The scholarship is paid through Forney ISD to Eastfield College to cover both the fall and spring semesters. Students are responsible for purchasing any textbooks and additional supplies required for the dual credit course.The Forney Education Foundation Dual Credit Advantage PLUS Scholarship was created to assist students in achieving college credit hours while still in high school and replaces the post graduate scholarship previously offered by the foundation.
