Dual Credits
| KPR Home | Con Ed Home | Calendar of Events | Staff Directory

Dual credits give selected secondary school students the opportunity to experience a college environment and to gain credit in both secondary school and college.  Students take a college credit taught by a college faculty member and must meet the requirements to pass.

If successful, students earn an elective credit at secondary school and are issued a college credit on a college transcript.  The course will be recognized at college if they choose to attend a program for which the course is a requirement.

Dual credits give students opportunities to sample post-secondary education, to work in college labs, to experience a new environment and to build their confidence to be successful at the post-secondary level.  Dual credits began in Ontario in 2005, with thousands of secondary students experiencing the opportunity successfully since that time.
