UT’s College Credit Plus Program: innovative technology, expert faculty and the most course options available to the dual credit student.

This gives students the advantage of starting the transition to college early, while reducing the cost and length of time to receive a degree. They will have already received college credit.
High school students can take part in the college experience, interacting with full-time college students and university faculty, while experiencing the rigor of college-level courses.
