Dual Credit Enrichment

Applications are due on January 31st for the Upcoming School Year

Dual Credit Enrichment

Certified Dual Credit

In partnership with Vancouver Island University

Dual Credit Enrichment

This program allows grade 12 students to attend VIU. Current grade 11 students are able to apply for VIU courses before regular VIU registration opens! This exciting opportunity is available to all students that meet CTC and VIU course prerequisites and requirements.

Note: Grade 10 students may apply and take DCe courses in Grade 11 with special approval after consideration.

Students can enroll in 1-2 courses per semester with a maximum of 4 courses in the school year. It
is important to discuss this option with your parents, counsellor, VIU advisor, and CTC Staff. The courses MUST lead to a “specific career”

  1. Dual credit students will earn both 4 high school grade 12 elective and 3 university credits per course (these courses do not count toward your scholarship GPA).
  2. To be considered, a student MUST be of school age or younger (18 years old as of July 1st of the school year that they will be attending VIU courses) and a non-graduate.
  3. To be considered, a student MUST be taking a minimum two courses in a district high school in the semester they want to attend VIU (students can NOT be registered in VIU dual credit courses only).
  4. Dual Credit Enrichment students can apply to take up to 2 courses, per semester, to a maximum of 4 courses (or equivalent credits).
  5. High school courses will be reviewed to ensure they meet all VIU course prerequisites (i.e. English 12, Pre-Calculus 12, Drama 11, etc.).
  6. All prerequisites must be complete before starting the VIU course (unless special permission is granted)
  7. CTC will pay tuition for all approved courses.

Course availability will be updated to include Fall courses when it is published by VIU. New courses are added each year so if you would like a course that is not on the list, contact the CTC and we will do our best to have it added.

Program Overview

Students are responsible for the VIU application fee, student fees, student activity fees, materials, travel, parking, and textbooks costs CTC pays just tuition. If you drop out of all VIU courses you register for, you could be responsible for the $200.00 VIU registration fee.

Eligible courses must be in a certificate or diploma program. Some possible courses are listed below. If you wish to take a course that is not approved by the CTC you can pay for the course directly to VIU and possibly still receive dual credit. .
