  1. THEO’s Dual Credit Admissions officer at Collin College is Walter Pinder, who can be reached at wpinder@collin.edu  His office number is 972-578-5585 and his office is at the Spring Creek Collin campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway G119, Plano.
  2. WHEN the student takes the SAT or ACT, we strongly recommend that they list Collin College as one of the colleges to receive their scores.  When they take the SAT, the Collin code is 1951; if they take the ACT, the Collin College code is 4046.
  3. In light of the COVID shut down, Collin College  waived the TSI  until October 16th, your student will need to test by then.  The Collin Testing Centers are now open and available for testing BY APPOINTMENT – scroll to the bottom of the page to find days/hours and addresses.   When your students signs up for a Collin class as a high school student, they must submit a completed and signed Permission form.    FORM: http://www.collin.edu/express/dualcredit/Spring%202021%20Permission%20Form_Fillable.pdf    
  4. Permission forms – IMPORTANT:  When your child takes a Collin class on the Collin campus, parents sign as the principal of their school granting permission.  But when the student takes the Collin class on THEO’s campus, then you sign as parent, your child signs as student, and I sign as granting permission from THEO.

  6. Collin also hosts a dual credit meeting for homeschooling families in March of each year.  Contact them early February to rsvp.  THEO families will receive the invite through our parent communication system.  Collin requires RSVPs!
  7. QUESTIONS and ANSWERS:

When a student applies to a  college and has their SAT or ACT scores sent to that college, can they pick and choose which scores the school receives?

It depends on the college’s testing policy.  The college board and ACT have given “score choice” to students, but the colleges have the final say in what scores students should submit.  If you look at https://www.compassprep.com/superscore-and-score-choice/ , you can see a list of colleges and if they allow score choice.  For example, Stanford requires you to send EVERYTHING…. all scores from ACT or SAT or both if you took both.

So look up the school, and see what they require…Thank you Melinda Brown of College Prep Guru
