On Ramps is considered Dual Enrollment
- OnRamps students receive separate grades for the high school and college courses. To be eligible for college credit, students must meet the minimum requirements of the university’s grading system indicated on each course syllabus.
- The university’s Instructor of record will award students the appropriate grade based on their performance for the college course. The high school teacher will separately award credit for the grade earned in the high school course, which may differ from that for the college course.
- Students can accept or decline college credit. Accepted credits will be officially recorded on UT college transcript and may transfer to any public colleges. Students who decline will not have a university transcript.
