What is dual credit?

High school students earn both high school and college credits for the same course.  Generally, this means a college credit course taught by a college instructor with the involvement of a secondary school teacher and successfully completed by a high school student enrolled in a School District that has an agreement with an Alberta University or College.  The credits earned count as credit toward a student’s high school diploma or certificate and post-secondary credits that are recorded on their post-secondary transcript.  Students will receive a transcript from each institution upon the completion of the course or term. In 2015 a student's high school transcript will show the student received post-secondary credit.

Why dual credit?

Participating in dual-credit enables a student to make incremental progress toward their college program before finishing high school. Research indicates a number of benefits for students in dual credit programs, including increases in student attendance, student engagement and achievement, and career and life goal setting. 

Where are the courses being offered, and how are they delivered?

Dual credit courses are available in a variety of delivery methods and on a variety of schedules.  Currently, dual credit opportunities include courses in Health Sciences (Mount Royal University), Althetic Development (Mount Royal), Office Administration (GPRC), Business Administration (GPRC), Arts & Science (GPRC), Early Learning and Childhood Development (GPRC), and Power Engineering (Northern Lakes) .  Dual credit is not possible in all College courses and programs.  Details about courses and programs that are available for dual credit are provided through your high school, usually in May for courses that start in September, and in September for second semester courses.  

What does it cost to enrol?

Each School District will charge a $300 caution fee to enroll, refundable upon completion. Please see your counsellor for the particulars of your school. Students are expected to pay the one-time $70 application fee upon the first time they apply to GPRC if the course is offered at GPRC. 

Who is eligible for dual credit?

Generally, students in grades 11 and 12 are able to apply for dual credit courses.  Your school’s Guidance Counsellor will assist you to determine if there is a dual credit course or program that fits your interests and schedule.

For application packages and more information, please talk to your school’s Guidance Counsellor.
