How to Apply and Register
Step 1 - Choose from our wide variety of courses
Online courses offer the most flexibility while you're attending high school. You can work on your course anywhere you have access to a computer and the Internet. Consider taking a regularly scheduled course in a face-to-face classroom if you have easy access to the Cranbrook campus.
Permission from your school Principal/Counsellor is required before final acceptance to College of the Rockies is granted.
If you do not qualify for the Dual Credit Award you can still take a dual credit course at the College of the Rockies but must submit a Dual Credit School Permission Form from your school with your application. Regular fees will apply.
* The value of the award is equal to the tuition cost for one 3-credit course (excluding textbook).
Step 3 - Register for Courses
Once you have been accepted as a College of the Rockies student, you can register for courses.
