WHAT IS DUAL CREDIT?

Dual credit makes it possible for grades 11 and 12 students to take post-secondary courses and receive credit towards both high school graduation and post-secondary credentials.  In addition to providing the post-secondary credits, these courses count as elective credit at the Grade 12 level.  As such, in Richmond SD38, tuition is covered for our dual-credit courses/programs offered.  Students are responsible for covering associated books, fees, equipment etc. costs.
