Victoria College and the Cuero Independent School District have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding that will give Cuero High School students the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school through Victoria College.
Cuero ISD students will be able to attend dual-credit classes at Victoria College’s Main Campus, Cuero High School or online. The students will also have the same access to academic, career and transfer advising as well as disabilities services, technology support services and library services and resources available to other VC students.
“Cuero ISD is a fantastic school district with many opportunities for students to graduate with college hours as well as workforce certifications,” VC President Dr. Jennifer Kent said. “We are excited to serve the students at Cuero High School and look forward to a great partnership.”
Victoria College will offer 109 dual-credit classes during the Fall 2021 semester.
“Cuero ISD and VC have been longtime partners in educating our kids and offering college opportunities for them,” said Cuero ISD Superintendent Dr. Micah Dyer. “Cuero is glad to be able to renew this continued relationship that we have, and we look forward to what the future holds for Cuero ISD and Victoria College.”
Victoria College’s Board of Trustees recently approved a reduced rate for dual-credit classes for the 2021-22 academic year. The new structure waives lab fees for dual-credit students, and an additional tuition discount reduces the cost for dual-credit classes to $250 for Cuero ISD students.
