There are three options for academic courses: Enrichment– this opportunity is targeted for students entering Grade 12. It is marketed to schools and the community in early February. Students review a number of preselected courses that are approved by Faculties and consult with high school contacts to ensure feasibility. These courses have a limited number of reserved seats and are made available to students to apply late April early May. Admission is considered based on Incoming Outstanding Student criteria: 3 A’s and 1 B in core grade 11 courses. Once all applicants are reviewed and registered, remaining available seats are opened up for general registration to full time VIU students. Maximum of two courses per semester. Accepted students will be notified early May. Public school systems are funding these courses for students. Application fee, books, supplies and Student Union, Student Services and Activity fees are paid for by the student. Late Admission – Students at any time of the year can apply to take a course as long as they meet course prerequisites. Students follow the same process to apply through their School districts as they would any other time of year. Contact your school district Dual Credit Coordinator for more information specific to your district. Cohort Model – Entire sections of a course are purchased by the School District and filled with high school students only.  This option can be arranged at a start time preferred by the school district Eg: start in February to align with high school semesters. Frequently Asked Questions See: full list of FAQs Q:  When can I learn more about this program? A:   Attend an information session in early February of your Grade 11 year.

A: You can take a maximum of two courses per semester for a total of 4 courses in one year. Q:  Does completing this course count as credit toward a program or degree I might enroll in later? A: Absolutely, all courses will be listed on your transcript and will count for full credit towards any future program to which it can be applied. If you want to see how a course will transfer to a specific University you can consult the BC Transfer Guide. If you plan to attend a school out of province or country you will need to check with the specific institution. Q: Can I get high school credit for completing a course at Vancouver Island University? A: Your course is a dual credit course and will be reflected as post-secondary institute (PSI) on your high school transcript. If you require a transcript from VIU, to transfer these courses to another institution, you will be required to request and pay for the transcript. Q: Some VIU courses require that I have certain Grade 12 courses done before I apply. How do I do this? A: You need to plan your courses with your school counsellor, so that you complete any required courses in the first semester of your grade 12 year. Q: What are some examples of courses students can take? A:  English, Psychology, History, Marketing, Social Work, Anthropology, Media Studies, Philosophy, Biology, Chemistry, Math, Music, etc. Q: What times are these courses offered? A: Courses are offered at all times of the day from 8:30am to 9:00pm. A number of different times are available to give options for students. Q: How can I take a University level English course? A: We recommend that you take English 12 in Grade 11. You could also be completing your English 12 in first semester of grade 12 and take first year university English in spring semester at VIU. There would be less than one month overlap. Q:  What do I have to pay? A:  The School District pays your tuition and you are responsible for the cost of books, application fee, any necessary lab fees and Student Union, Student Activity, and Student Services fees. How can you help? What do you need to know? Start identifying students that would benefit from this opportunity as early as grade 10. Encourage strong students to take English 12 in second semester Grade 11 to leave more options open for courses. Refer students to viu.ca/dualcredit.ca to see posted Information Session dates and other important notices. Work directly with a student to ensure the courses they want will work with their high school timetable. Did you know?

    [Dual Credit] Testimonials Michael Carpenter created Testimonials  Caityn McNicoll was a Grade 12 NDSS student enrolled in VIU’s Academic Dual Credit program. Read more about her story S. Fan Some advice I would give for new students: 1) join lots of clubs at VIU as they are very welcoming to dual credit students and its a great thing to set you apart on your resume. 2) Make friends! Everyone I've met in my classes and labs do not care that I’m still in high school...they just commend your accomplishments and it actually makes you feel great about yourself! I. Poulin This has been amazing opportunity to experience university classes before taking on a full course load. I have made some great new connections and expanded my educational experience. The university work load is quite substantial but not impossible and there is less mandatory class time to attend. The whole experience has helped prepare me for university. The idea of being a high school student at the university was overwhelming at first but once I got up there no one really seemed to care that I was in grade 12. C. McNicoll My dual credit experience at VIU was great. It gave me the chance to ease into University by trying a few classes. It felt a lot difference than highschool so I appreciated the opportunity to get prepared for coming full time. I was able to use this experience to improve my study skills and learn how to manage my time. B. Thomson My first semester at VIU was really fun and I learned so much from both the classes and from just walking around. I met people that are all going to school because they want to and because they want to learn. From watching, meeting, and experiencing what VIU is like and the people teaching inside it and the students that are very happy to be there, I was glad to gain this understanding of it all. I was nervous when I first came to VIU, not really understanding what to do or where to go. But, after being there twice a week and meeting people, I feel confident for next year when I go to University full time or part time. I was and am lucky to be able to obtain this knowledge of what my life will probably be like after I graduate and I’m really excited for it all now. In some ways I want my high school life to be done, so I can start my University life right away. M. Plaxton I really liked how my instructor added in the real life to his teachings so it made everything more relatable and easier to recall. You can tell he’s very passionate about his job and it reflects on his students. His enthusiasm made me really want to participate in the class. The other students I met were very accepting as well. It didn’t matter to them that I was in high school, and going into this whole program was my biggest fear. I actually made a few friends that I am hoping to see again on campus next semester. M.

Q:  Can I get high school credit for completing a course at Vancouver Island University? A:  Your course is a dual credit course and will be reflected as post-secondary institute (PSI) on your high school transcript.  If you require a transcript from VIU, to transfer these courses to another institution, you will be required to request and pay for the fee yourself.  Q:  Some VIU courses require that I have certain Grade 12 courses done before I apply.  How do I do this? A:  You need to plan your courses with your school counselor, so that you complete any required courses in the first semester of your grade 12 year. Q.

A: Some school districts require it. Please check with your own district. Q:   Will the VIU course be more difficult than a high school course? A:  Most students find out that if they put in the required effort and time they can do as well in a university course as they do in their high school classes. However, some differences may include: homework ranges from 4-7 hours per week of instruction at VIU (14 weeks in total) classmates will include older university students and students are expected to be more independent. Q. Will the grades from my VIU courses be included in my GPA for the purposes of admission to University? A: There are many factors involved including: what year you plan to apply, admission requirements, and the university you choose just to name a few.  Most universities do not include the grades or completion of Dual Credit courses in their admission decisions. For this reason students need to be sure they are taking the necessary number of high school courses to be admitted at their chosen institution. Q. Can I include the grades from my VIU courses, in my overall high school GPA for VIU Entrance scholarship purposes? A. Only for the VIU President’s Dual Credit Entrance Scholarship for High School Students, not any of the other awards. Students should check with school counsellors on criteria for their own school district awards. Registered Dual Credit Students Attendance Missing classes could affect your grade. Instructors have the responsibility to ensure that appropriate learning takes place and they will usually announce any policies regarding attendance on the first day of classes. Students should also be aware that there are policies that cover illness, emergencies, etc. You are expected to be familiar with these policies. Q:  What happens if I don’t show up for the first class? A:  VIU feels that the first day attendance in a class is so important that they have any existing policy that all students should be aware of:  “Vancouver Island University reserves the right to cancel any student’s registration in a course if the student does not attend the first scheduled session of a course and does not notify the instructor or area secretary.” Q:  When do classes start and finish? A:  University courses for the fall semester will begin the first week of September and Spring Semester will begin the first week of January. See: important dates. Q. Can I attend the New Student Orientation that happens near the end of August? A. Yes, you can attend. You need to register for New Student Orientation with your VIU student number. You can find this on communication sent to you from VIU. Q. Where can I get a student card to access the gym and library? A. Head into the main floor of the Library (Building 305) and turn right. Be sure you have photo ID and your student number. Q: What do I have to pay? A: In most cases the school district pays your tuition and you are responsible for the following fees: Student Union, Activity Fees, Student Services Fees, any lab fees and the cost of books and any supplies needed for the the course. Some districts vary. Please check with your Dual Credit Coordinator. Q. What do I do if I would like to withdraw from a course? A:  Students wishing to withdraw must do so officially.This includes emailing the Dual Credit Coordinator in your District and the VIU Dual Credit Coordinator. Please make note of all VIU important dates. Neglecting these important dates can cause you costly mistakes.  Q:  How do I find out about my textbooks? A:  You can visit the VIU Campus Store online or in person. Be sure you have the name and section number of your course with you. Q:  How do I confirm the time and location of my class? A:  You can visit the VIU course timetable and input your course ID to receive the most up to date information on your course. Q:  How do I know when and where to go for my final exam? A:  Exam information will be given out well in advance of the December and April dates. Some classes will not require exams and instructors will let students know. Q. Can I now take a summer course after taking a fall or spring dual credit course? A. If you have not taken your four course limit then yes. Please connect with the Dual Credit Coordinator to review the process to request courses. Q. What do I do if I am interested in attending VIU full time next year?
