Dual-Credit Method of Study

Our dual-credit programs provide high-school students with an opportunity to explore post-secondary education and career pathways while earning course credits, workplace certification or a SAIT credential alongside their high school diploma.

Students delve deeper into a subject area they are interested in, making learning more meaningful and relevant. Programs are often aligned to Career and Technology Studies curriculums.

In most cases, students commute to SAIT campus one or more times a week during the school day to learn from our industry-trained instructors and get hands-on in our tech-enriched classrooms and labs. Participants receive a SAIT ID number as well as a permanent SAIT transcript. The students experience post-secondary life, familiarizing themselves with campus and its services, which builds their confidence when making the transition to higher education or work once they graduate.

Authorized and funded by Alberta Education in 2013, SAIT dual-credit programs are offered at no direct cost to students and their families, short of required supplies such as personal protective equipment, textbooks or scrubs.

Students who successfully complete their high school requirements and their dual-credit program may be eligible to attend SAIT's fall convocation ceremonies.

Eligibility for dual-credit programs

Although pre-requisites and requirements vary between programs, dual-credit studies are designed for students in grades 11 and 12. An interest in the subject matter and a desire to possibly pursue a career in the related industry are key to student success.

Students must be able to accommodate the dual-credit courses into their current school schedules and be ready to commit to the program for its entire duration, which can range from one to three semesters.

Please note starting Jan 1, 2022, everyone coming to SAIT campuses must be able to prove full COVID-19 vaccination. This means that Dual-Credit students attending on campus classes will need to be fully vaccinated with a World Health Organization (WHO)- approved COVID-19 vaccine.
