Dual Credit Awards

How would you like to take a college course for free?* That's exactly what you'll get if you are one of the first qualified applicants for one of our 35 tuition awards.

Students are entitled to earn "dual credit" if they earn credit that leads to a post-secondary credential from a post-secondary institution which is a member of the British Columbia Transfer System or offered in French through the auspices of Educacentre.
