Dual Credit courses
What is it?
The dual credit program allows you to get a head start towards your future. It's easy. You can take college or apprenticeship courses while you are still in high school! Earn credits towards both your high school diploma and a postsecondary education. Put yourself on the track to a successful transition to college or an apprenticeship program while gaining a better perspective on your career path.
How do I sign up?
To apply, check with your guidance or student success counsellor at your home school to see if you meet the required criteria to be considered for the program. Fanshawe College provides the courses and the school boards make the decision on who actually is successful in getting to attend.
The application forms are also available from your guidance counsellor at your home schools.
This is where selected students come to Fanshawe for one day or portion of a day to take one or two college classes taught by a college professor. They are bussed to and from their high school one day a week.

What does Fanshawe College offer?
At the present time Fanshawe has four dual credit models: OYAP, SWAC, Day Away and Team-Taught.
Students are enrolled in the OYAP program and can receive their level one apprenticeship standing. Students typically attend Fanshawe College three days a week.
Students are selected by school boards to participate in this unique opportunity.
A class (usually 22 students) participates in up to four college credits in a year and also takes a number of (usually four) high school credits. The college credits are taught by college faculty and the high school credits are taught by a high school teacher. The unique nature is that these students are at Fanshawe College all week.
The team-taught delivery model is used where transportation to one of the campuses is challenging due to distance and travel time. Team-taught courses are normally delivered at a high school in a course where there is significant overlap between college course curriculum and high school course curriculum.
The college instructor at the high school delivers the college credit.
There is absolutely no cost to students!
The School College Work Initiative (SCWI) program covers all transportation, tuition and materials – including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) where required.
