We have established partnerships with School Districts 59, 60, and 81 in northeastern British Columbia, as well as with Northern Opportunities, to offer Dual Credit programming with options to qualified secondary school students.
Dual Credit programming allows students in grades 11 and 12 to gain credits towards secondary school graduation while also earning credit for post-secondary courses, vocational programs, or a trade or apprenticeship program.
Programs may be available in full-time format (where a student attends NLC full time for up to a year), or part-time (where a student may take one or two courses per semester).
How much does this cost?
Each participating School District has an agreement with Northern Lights College regarding the payment of tuition fees for Dual Credit programs. Students are responsible for student fees and instruction-related fees. For details, check with your secondary school counselor.
How do I apply?
- Meet with your secondary school counselor and ensure that you will have completed the requirements before the program starts, and your high school timetable will accommodate dual credit. Your counselor will provide the application package to you.
- Fill out the application package and return it to your secondary school counsellor. This includes:
- Signing the Letter of Understanding and other school district forms (have your parent or guardian sign as well)
- Completing NLC Application forms
- Submit any additional documents required by your program.
Where are the programs offered?
Individual Dual Credit programs are offered at specific NLC campuses or online
Can I stay on campus?
