​Dual Credits, which are available to students throughout DPCDSB secondary schools, provides grade 11 and 12 students with a unique opportunity to earn both college and non-compulsory secondary credits at the same time. Credits earned count towards a students’ Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), and towards a postsecondary certificate, diploma, degree, or a Certificate of Apprenticeship.

Students may earn up to 4 approved dual credits towards their OSSD… and some College Delivered Dual Credits may also count towards a student's SHSM Major Requirements!
