Dual Credit

Lethbridge School Division, University of Lethbridge and Lethbridge College are working together to develop High School Dual Credit opportunities for the 2021/2022 school year and in the future. Collaboration and partnership in our communities and with our post-secondary institutions is a vital part of providing opportunities and choice for our high school students.

What is Dual Credit?

Dual Credit is an opportunity for students to take university entry-level courses from university instructors while attending high school.
The program is designed to introduce students to the rigors of post-secondary course content and instruction while still in high school in order to ease the transition to university life and eventually to the workplace.

Advantages

Ultimately, this initiative seeks to increase exciting learning opportunities and choice for high school students in Lethbridge School District High Schools. Further, the “Dual Credit experience” will assist high school students in building a deeper understanding of the College or University experience.
