Dual Credit

Through the School College Work Initiative, school boards and colleges partner to offer Dual Credit Programs that allow senior high school students to simultaneously earn high school and college credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma and a college diploma or Level 1 Apprenticeship Training.

Our Halton school boards are currently partnering with Humber, Mohawk, Seneca and Sheridan Colleges. For information on Dual Credit programs, please contact your Guidance Department.

Earning Dual Credits allows students to get a head start on learning and training for their future careers while earning post-secondary experience at little or no cost. Course costs, texts, and transportation are all covered.
