Dual Credit Information

Spring 2020 Dual Credit Students:

Please check your Overton ISD school email and your Kilgore College email account DAILY.  Log in to your Blackboard DAILY if your course is online.  FACE TO FACE courses at the CTE Center will be turning to online courses on Blackboard starting March 23.  Here is the most recent information from Kilgore College concerning online learning:  

We plan to begin classes again on Monday, March 23, if at all possible.  All classes will be delivered remotely, and students can get instructions and communicate with their instructors through Blackboard.  We want your students to be successful despite living in uncertain times.

Classes that started out as Web classes will continue, with the semester lasting a week longer at the end.

Face to Face classes will shift to an online mode of delivery.  Instructors will be adapting as quickly as they can.  We hope to have classes delivered with synchronous lectures over one of two plans available.  More on that later, but lectures will be recorded, archived, and available if a student does not interact with the live class.  Some classes will be very difficult to teach – like Welding – and I have not heard the solutions yet.

There are so many unknowns, and they are changing daily.  Student access to the internet will be a challenge!  Our Library and computer labs will be open for students.

To apply to Kilgore College for Dual Credit courses, please begin the process in June for the Fall semester, and in December for the Spring semester.  You must score a 4000 or higher on the English II STAAR test and/or the Algebra I STAAR test or you must take and pass the TSI college entrance exam.  We are a TSI testing center and offer testing in December and in April for the upcoming College Semesters.  Students must also be up to date on their meningitis vaccine (within 5 years) to enroll in a college course.
