Dual Credit Programs

If you're a grade 12 student, you'll get the chance to get started on your university education and earn high school credits—at the same time.

This pathway helps transition students from secondary school to post-secondary while earning both high school graduation and post-secondary education. You can attend KPU while you're still finishing high school, and get a sneak peek into the post-secondary scene.

Which dual credit program is for you?

  • Surrey On-Campus, if you attend a secondary school in the Surrey school district and are interested in arts, social sciences or business
  • Surrey On-Campus: Aboriginal Stream, if you attend a secondary school in the Surrey school district and are interested in studying Aboriginal culture
  • Langley XCEL, if you attend a secondary school in the Langley school district and are interested in arts, social sciences or business
  • Link38, if you attend a secondary school in the Richmond school district and are interested in arts, social sciences, or business
  • ACE-IT, if you attend a secondary school in BC and are interested in trades and technology
  • Concurrent Studies, if you’d like to take a course or two, but do not fall into the categories above. (*note, this option is not tuition-free)
