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.
