What Is Dual Credit?

When you take a HSXL course for dual credit, you get closer to high school graduation and get university credit...at the same time!

The University of Regina, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education, offers a growing selection of dual credit courses. Dual credit courses, approved by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education, are University of Regina courses that cover the content of both the university-level course and corresponding high school course, giving you credit on both your university and high school transcripts.

  • Eligible students may take any of the approved U of R courses and request through their main high school educator to obtain the corresponding high school course. 
  • Registration is typically limited to one course per term. Requests for more than one course per term will be reviewed based on your high school grades and other circumstances that may apply.
  • Refer to the Ministry of Education's Dual Credit Policy for helpful information about policies, procedures and processes related to dual credit and 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.
