Some Texas students are discovering that not all universities are accepting dual-credit classes they completed in high school. Instead of counting toward core subjects, some colleges are counting the courses as electives or suggesting that students repeat the course. State law requires high schools to offer students the ability to earn at least 12 college credits, and participation in such classes has doubled to 90,000 students over five years. Officials say they are working to fix problems with the dual-credit system.
