UTPB Dual Credit Enrollment-Getting Started


UTPB Dual Credit Enrollment-Getting Started

Students need three things to enroll.  1) Fill out the online application  2) Have passing TSI Accuplacer Scores 3) Have a copy of their HS transcript submitted to UTPB by Blackwell CISD

  1. Follow this LINK  to the UTPB Dual Credit Academy.  There is information to look over.   Students new to dual credit and students that have already taken dual credit courses need to follow the link found on the UTPB website "Dual Credit Academy Application Online." This will lead to the application forms. It is important to get this information correct, especially the courses the student intends to take. If a student wants to double check the courses they are planning they can contact Ms. Coalson or Mr. Shipman at the school by phone 325-282-2311 or by email bshipman@blackwellcisd.org or lcoalson@blackwellcisd.org.
  2. All students have taken the Accuplacer and Ms. Coalson has reviewed those scores with them. If their scores are high enough, Blackwell CISD submits those scores to UTPB. However, if a student needs to retake the Accuplacer, the closest place to Blackwell is TSTC in Sweetwater. Contact Patricia Carpio (325) 235-7441 or prcarpio@tstc.edu. Test can usually be scheduled for the following day and results are immediately available. Passing or non passing scores need to be taken to Mr. Shipman. Passing scores will be submitted to UTPB and non passing will discuss tutoring options before testing again if the students chooses to keep testing.
  3. Blackwell CISD will submit student transcripts as needed

Cost is $200 for English courses and $150 for non English courses.  Blackwell CISD purchases text books. 

Students handle their own payments through UTPB.  Blackwell CISD is not involved in any manner in the payment process.  Students should be looking in their UTPB email and online account for billing information.  That account is created after enrollment is completed.
