Dual credit and special projects

High School Accelerated students can earn dual credit or special project credits for their high school transcripts with this program. 

The University of Regina in partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education offers a selection of dual credit courses. Dual credit courses, as defined by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education, are those courses offered by the University whereby the student can simultaneously earn credit for a specified course at the high school level.

The University of Regina has several dual credit opportunities for students including Math 110 (Calculus 30), English 100 (English B30), and Art 220 (Art 30L). New for Winter 2022, students will now be able to take Indigenous Studies 100 (Native Studies 30) as dual credit! For a list of dual credit opportunities approved by the Sask Ministry of Ed, please see Dual Credit Course List.

You can also find the Ministry of Education’s policy on dual credits and information on the types of dual credit here: Dual Credit Policy Saskatchewan. This policy document contains helpful information about policies, procedures, and processes related to dual credit, as well as outlines the roles of the University, the high school and the Ministry.

Special Project Credit - Special project credits are student-initiated and designed to encourage the pursuit of learning in an area of personal interest or passion. The content of the special project(s) need not be related to a specific school subject according to the Ministry of Education's definition. A final mark of Standing Granted (SG) will be awarded for the successful completion of a special project. The mark of SG will appear on the official Transcript of Secondary Level Achievement.
