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.

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. 

Does Dual Credit transfer to my new school?

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.
