What is a Dual Credit Program?

Students are concurrently enrolled in a post secondary institution while at high school. Students earn credits in high school AND the post secondary school. Their post-secondary tuition fees are paid by Palliser.

Dual credit helps students to:

  • get a jump start on their post-secondary education while still in high school
  • complete high school while engaging in meaningful curriculum
  • transition to post-secondary studies or move into the world of work
  • potentially complete post-secondary with less financial debt
