On February 1, 2013 approximately 200 high school students will visit Texas A&M University – Kingsville (TAMUK) from the Northwest Center in Calallen, Texas to learn about the university’s dual enrollment program.
Dual Enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college credit toward a postsecondary degree at an Institution of Higher Education that will also count as credit toward a high school diploma, and become a part of a student’s permanent college transcript.
Juniors and seniors may become eligible based on their 10th or 11th Grade TAKS scores or one of the other tests listed on the registration form. They must pass the section of the TAKS that corresponds to the course for which they would like to enroll.
Students are required to complete an approved Texas Success Initiative (TSI) exam prior to enrolling into college-level courses, unless exempt.
Acceptable TSI tests are as follows:
The University views this visit as an opportunity to not only recruit new students, but also attract them to some of the university’s smaller majors.
There will be a luncheon at the Cesar Kleberg Wildlife Center, where student advisors will mingle with high school students to promote their majors and departments.
The event will begin at 8:30 A.M. at Jones Auditorium and conclude at 1:45 at the Cesar Kleberg Wildlife Center.
