Dual credit programs
Dual credit initiatives enable grade 11 and 12 students in Alberta to engage in university-level coursework and simultaneously earn high school and post-secondary credit. Dual credit programming aims to encourage students to explore potential fields of study or career paths while in high school, and facilitate a successful high school to university transition. Mount Royal is currently engaged in dual credit initiatives with Springbank High School (Environmental Science), Bishop Carrroll High School (English Composition) and Westmount Charter School (Biology).
Where offered, students of good academic standing can take part in courses offered by Mount Royal University taught in tandem by a university professor and a high school teacher in their current school. Students who enroll in dual credit programs get ahead of the curve while taking university level courses on high school time.
