What is dual credit?
A dual credit program allows secondary students to take postsecondary courses while they are still in high school. Dual credit students may receive elective credit towards their high school graduation, a possibility they need to confirm with their high school.
How many courses can I take?
Students may take two dual credit courses per year.
Which Yukon College courses are eligible for dual credit?
Any Yukon College course that is part of the British Columbia Council on Admission and Transfer (BCCAT) system are eligible for dual credit. Students can determine if a course is included in BCCAT by clicking the “check BC transfer options” on each course page. This link will take you to the BCCAT page for that course and list all the other post-secondary institutes in BC that will accept that course.
Do Yukon College courses transfer to post-secondary institutes outside of British Columbia?
Yes, Yukon College also has transfer agreements with Alberta. Yukon College courses have also been accepted at a number of institutions across Canada and the United States. If you have concerns regarding the transferability of a course, please contact our Enrolment Services Team.
What do I need to apply?
