Dual Credit Program
Dual credit programs are offered by locally by Algonquin College and St. Lawrence College in partnership with the six Eastern Ontario school boards.
A dual credit program provides secondary school students with the opportunity to take college/apprenticeship level courses at a post-secondary school, and the credits earned will count towards both the student’s OSSD (Ontario Secondary School Diploma) as well as their post-secondary diploma, apprenticeship, or certification.
Dual credit programs allow high school students to ‘try out’ or sample college / apprenticeship programs at no cost. As well, dual credit students gain experience in a college environment and, as a result, can often transition into a college program with greater ease.
