Embedded Dual Credit

The Klein ISD offers embedded full-year dual credit courses. This means that Klein teachers are also college professors and students enrolled in an embedded dual credit class will have the class as part of their daily class schedule. Embedded dual credit courses in the chart below are marked with an *.  In the matter of College Algebra, it is important to note that College Algebra is not a dual credit equivalent to high school Algebra 1 and receives dual credit on the high school transcript if it is taken as an Embedded course. College Algebra taken off campus is a "college-credit only" course. Three-hour semester collegiate courses taken at the college or as concurrent enrollment cannot transfer as full-year ISD replacement credit. Before enrolling in a collegiate course, it is advised that students/parents speak to the high school dual credit counselor for guidance and information.
