Dual Credits give secondary school students the opportunity to sample college and gain a 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 college transcript. The course will be recognized at college if they choose to attend a program for which the course is the requirement. The course counts towards their secondary school diploma.
Dual credits give students the opportunity to sample post-secondary education, work in college labs, experience a new environment, and build their confidence.
