What are Dual Credit Programs?
Ministry-approved Dual Credit programs allow you - while you're still in high school - to take college or apprenticeship courses that count towards both:
- your high school diploma (Ontario Secondary School Diploma, or OSSD), and
- a postsecondary certificate, diploma, degree, or Certificate of Apprenticeship.
Benefits of participating in a Dual Credit program
- Earn up to four college-delivered credits towards your high school diploma.
- Make friends and experience college life - setting yourself up for a successful transition to college.
- Explore educational pathways and career opportunities.
- It’s FREE!
