Credit by Exam (CBE) WITHOUT Prior Instruction
CBE without prior instruction is for students who have subject matter knowledge in a course and want course credit in lieu of course enrollment during the school year. Visit the Klein ISD Student Assessment website for more detailed information.
Klein ISD and Lone Star College Partnership
Klein ISD is happy to partner with Lone Star College-University Park to provide students with imbedded dual credit courses as well as offer off-campus and online dual credit opportunities.

Length of Post-Secondary Study
The assumption is that a bachelor's degree is obtained after four years in college, but that is not necessarily true--for most. This great website provides four, five, and six-year graduation rates of schools across the country. Information is also broken down by gender and ethnicity.

It is never too early for students to begin thinking about what they will do after high school. College readiness starts in kindergarten!

As a rule of thumb:

Elementary school students need to become aware of the concept of higher education and understand its benefits.

Intermediate school students should investigate the higher education options and consider those closely related to their interests.

High school students must be sure to take challenging courses, including those required by colleges (as appropriate). They also must follow all of the application processes associated to their chosen course of study or field. Click below for descriptions and examples of the many options available.

Standard Admissions Requirements

Students: Check to see if you are "on track" to meet college entrance requirements to your selected college. Also check to see how you "stack up" to the college freshman who have been selected by your university of choice. Use your College Board log in or create a user profile if you have not already done so. Then search for the "Academic Tracker". You will be able to select a college, see the average high school GPA accepted, visit their website to view their "core" curriculum and the curriculum of your desired area of study, and you will be able to see the average accepted SAT and ACT score of their freshman class.
