WHAT IS DUAL CREDIT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS?
Dual credit programs and courses let you earn high school and college credits at the same time. In most cases your college tuition will be covered by the school district. Reserved SIP (South Island Partnership) seats fill up quickly, and admission into programs usually includes an interview process, so don’t leave this to the last minute. A great time to start asking questions is while you’re in Grade 10 or 11, so you can be ready to take advantage of this opportunity.
