High School Teacher Talking To Pupils Using Digital Devices In Technology Class

Post Secondary Dual Credit Courses

Dual credit is optional career-based high school programming

Post secondary dual credit courses are for students who want to earn both high school credits and credits that count towards a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree. Dual credit courses allow students to build on or discover their career passions and interests.


 

 


 

Dual credit students:

  • Complete five 30-level CTS credits and three post-secondary credits
  • Get a start on their post-secondary education while in high school
  • Seamlessly transition to post-secondary studies or into the world of work

For 2023–24, dual credit courses will be offered in Semester 2 during the evening.


Important considerations for Dual Credit

  • Students should speak with their families, teachers or school counsellors about their dual credit options and decide what is right for them.
  • Students should consider the commitment and workload required for a post-secondary level course, including how it will fit into both personal and academic schedules.
  • Students will need to complete the necessary prerequisites.

Dual credit courses are open to current Edmonton Public School students
