Dual Credit (DC) courses are college courses delivered by college faculty to carefully selected secondary school students. If successful, students will get both secondary school and college credit(s). Dual Credit courses may be taught at the secondary school or at Fleming College. There are no costs associated with Dual Credit courses for secondary school students.
DC courses are designed to assist students in making a seamless transition from secondary school to college or apprenticeship. One of the greatest advantages of taking a Dual Credit course is having the college experience. All Dual Credit students are set-up with a Fleming student account, including a student number. They will gain experience using the College learning management system Desire2Learn "D2L" before entering as a post-secondary student.
Please note: Dual Credit course offerings are subject to change without notice.
All Dual Credit courses are part of a Fleming College program. Search by Dual Credit course to find programs or search by program to find Dual Credit courses.
DC courses are available at virtually every secondary school and college in Ontario.
DC courses vary from school to school and semester to semester. Contact your school Guidance or Student Success office for more information.
Some Dual Credit courses are General Education Electives that may satisfy the general education requirement across a variety of Fleming programs. For more information: https://flemingcollege.ca/programs/general-education-electives
DC Courses are targeted to specifically identified students and entrance requirements for DC courses may vary by course, school or board. Your local guidance counsellor can tell you what is available, what the requirements are, and can help you to apply.
Students are allowed to have up to four college-delivered Dual Credit courses and an unlimited number of team-taught Dual Credits.
There are no costs for secondary school students attending a Dual Credit Course. Books and transportation are provided free of charge to all students attending regularly.
College course hours vary. Dual Credit courses are usually delivered once or twice per week within the normal high school timetable. Travel time and required field trips may impact other secondary school courses in certain cases.
A student who will be absent must contact the secondary school following the normal absence procedures. Students should also notify the college instructor. Frequent absences will put the successful completion of the credit in jeopardy.
