Early Admission or Dual Credit


Weatherford College participates in a program of early admission for students who have not yet graduated from high school. A student requesting early admission/dual enrollment must meet the following requirements:

  • The student must be classified as a high school/home school student; or have received approval from the school district and Weatherford College.
  • The student must take a state approved assessment test or show proof of exemption with appropriate scores – ACT, SAT, or other state-approved placement test (see page 20 for qualifying scores) – before registering for any classes in a degree program.
  • The student must submit an application for admission to Weatherford College. An admission application can be submitted online through Coyote Recruit.
  • The student must provide proof of meningitis vaccine if attending class on a Weatherford College campus.
  • All early admissions students are encouraged to speak with their high school counselor regarding courses available for dual credit.

Upon acceptance, the student will be granted conditional admission. Upon graduation from high school, the student must submit an official high school transcript to the WC Student Services Office before an official college transcript
can be released.
The Weatherford College academic policies apply to early admission students. For additional information refer to the Weatherford College Early Admissions & Dual Credit page at https://wc.edu/admissions/how-to-apply/early-admissions-dual-credit.php
Early admission students with documented financial need may qualify for a TPEG Award for dual credit courses.
