How To Enroll

  • Students
    1. Review the program guidelines on this website and the student enrollment checklist.

    2. Please collect this information before beginning:
      • Student's physical address
      • Student's Social Security number
      • Student's email address (not an ISD address)
      • Student's phone number
      • Parent's legal name
      • Parent's email address (not an MCC address)
    3. McLennan County area students should access the High School Pathways Portal--the online enrollment system for dual credit, ECHS, and early admission.

      See the Related Links for the link to the High School Pathways Portal.
      The portal's progress tracker guides students through the enrollment process.

      Student Instructions for Portal

      Monitor the progress tracker to ensure all steps are completed and all paperwork received by MCC.
  • Parents
    1. Review the program guidelines on this website and the student enrollment checklist.

    2. Registration occurs in the High School Pathways Portal. The student must begin the process and identify you as the parent/guardian before your part begins.

    3. Watch for an email from dualcredit@mclennan.edu
      • Check your junk/spam folder.
      • The email contains a link that will take you to the High School Pathways Portal and an activation code for your son/daughter. 
    4. Create a parent account and log in to the High School Pathways Portal. 

      Parent Instructions for the Portal

    5. Grant consent for the student to enroll in a High School pathways program.
      • If your student's name does not appear in the "View Children" table, select "Add Child" and enter the activation code from the email. 
      • Consent applies until high school graduation.
    6. Other features of parent access:
      • Make an online payment (if student grants consent)
      • Review student schedule (if student grants consent)
      • Review end-of-semester grades (if student grants consent)
  • Notes for Homeschool Families
    1. Use the High School Pathways Portal for registration, BUT
      • The student should use the MCC student email account to send section numbers for the courses to the High School Pathways Office. 
      • Parental consent will also count as high school approval.
    2. Once per academic year, each homeschool family will sign a dual credit agreement with MCC.

  • Instructions for Out-of-Area Students
    1. Students attending schools not partnered with MCC for dual credit may enroll in Early Admission courses (college credit only). Since these out-of-area high schools are not programmed into the online portal, please follow the enrollment process below.

    2. Submit forms and accompanying paperwork to the High School Pathways office at dualcredit@mclennan.edu.
