ACC Dual Degree Program Has Record Number of Grads

ACC Dual Degree Program Has Record Number of Grads

During a Alvin Community College Commencement ceremony on May 12,  another record number of Alvin, Manvel, Shadow Creek and Turner high school students walked across the stage just weeks ahead of getting their high school diplomas.

ACC had 152 students on track to complete 60 hours of college coursework through participation in the Alvin Community College Dual Credit-Dual Degree program and complete their Associate Degree in General Studies.

Most dual degree graduate students begin their journey as freshmen, taking classes on their high school campus and any additional courses needed at ACC or online. Advisors say it takes a lot of work and the students have to stay on task.

“Each year our Dual Degree graduates continue to grow. It is a true testament to the ambition, drive, and fortitude of the students and the ACC program, faculty and staff,” said Akilah Martin, ACC Director  of College and Career Pathway. “As we continue to share the stories of these students and educate families, counselors and teachers about the program, I am confident that we will continue to see these numbers increase.”

Students seeking the associates degree have increased dramatically since ACC's first dual degree grad, Thomas Schuenemann, in 2008. Since the first graduate, the ACC Dual Credit program has had 497 students participate in commencement. There are now almost 1,900 students enrolled in the dual credit program at eight area high schools.
