Dual Credit Program

School-College-Work Initiatives - Dual Credit Program

The Dual Credit program is intended to assist secondary school students, between the age of 16 to 21 years of age, in their completion of their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and successfully transition to college and apprenticeship programs. Students also have the opportunity to explore different careers.

The Dual Credit program is made possible through the School College Work Initiative (SCWI) with funding provided by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. In 2007, George Brown College offered Dual Credit courses for the first time to 30 students. Today, there are over 950 dual credit students enrolled in George Brown College courses each year.

“Over the last few years our students have done very well when given the opportunity to pursue these credits. It is very rewarding to see these students truly ‘buy in’, and explore their potential at the College level and achieve success in a setting that really existed only in their dreams. For those students we see a renewed dedication to their high school courses and a belief for the first time that college is a viable destination for them.”
