Dual enrollment students must abide by the Code of Student Conduct outlined in the current College Catalog and Student Handbook. Dual enrollment students will be dismissed for disruptive behavior and referred to their high school principal or designee for disciplinary action on the high school side. Dual Enrollment students attending classes on a TSTC campus will be treated like traditional college students and are responsible for knowing all rules and regulations of the College. Student conduct violations will be handled through the Code of Student Conduct, Statewide Operating Standard ES 3.23, Student Rights and Responsibilities tstc.edu/governance/es

Dual Enrollment students are responsible for notifying their high school counselor and Dual Enrollment Representative if they are wanting to withdraw from their course(s). They are required to sign and submit a drop form to their counselor and DE Rep in order to be formally dropped.
After You Graduate
If you are planning on attending TSTC after you graduate, you DO NOT need to re-apply. Simply notify your Dual Enrollment Representative and they will send you a Change of Major form, transitioning you from a DE student to a Traditional Student. From there, you will need to submit your official high school transcript, bacterial meningitis vaccination record, and TSI scores to your Student Resource Coach.
