Dual Credit students build work-related skills through practical experience.

Dual Credit students build work-related skills through practical experience.

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

Having the opportunity to learn at my own pace was something that really helped me and other students get through high school. Being an independent student and having access to all of my assignments was a big help. I found myself accomplishing things I never thought possible.
