Dual Credit

What is Dual Credit?

Preparing to be a Pharmacy Assistant through Dual Credit.

Dual-credit programs provide high school students with the opportunity to explore post-secondary education and career pathways while earning credits at both the high school and post-secondary institution. Post-secondary tuition fees are paid by Palliser. Dual-credit studies are available to full-time Palliser students, and are designed primarily for grade 11 and 12 students.

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 debt

Students must be able to accommodate dual-credit courses into their current school and extra-curricular schedules, and be ready to commit to the program for its entire duration, which can range from one to three semesters.

More information for students and parents is on the Alberta Education website.
