Adult Dual Credit

two students working together

The Adult Dual Credit Program assists adult learners in the completion of their Ontario Secondary School Diploma and leads to successful transition to a college or apprenticeship program.  Students accepted to the program attend Durham College and the Archbishop Anthony Meagher CCEC campus for one semester.  During that time, they will complete their high school graduation requirements and take a college course taught by a Durham College faculty member.  If successful in the dual credit course, two credits are recorded: one on the high school transcript and the second on the college transcript.

"The Adult Dual Credit Program was amazing and it let me experience the college atmosphere.  Taking this program led me to apply for college, and I've been accepted and so excited to go!"  -Taylor
