Student Success
Dual Credit Programs
What is a dual credit?
Dual credits give secondary students the opportunity to sample college and gain credit in both secondary school and college. Students take a college credit from a college faculty member and must meet the requirements to pass. If successful, they are given an optional credit at secondary school and are issued a college transcript. The course will be recognized at college if they choose to attend a program for which the course is a requirement. The course also counts towards their secondary school diploma.

Dual credits give students the opportunity to sample post-seondary education, work in college labs, experiences a new environment and build their confidence. Dual credits began in Ontario in 2005, with thousands of secondary students experiencing the opportunity.
