What Makes a Student Eligible?

Students are expected to be enrolled as full-time Grade 11 or 12 students. The primary focus is on students who have the potential to succeed at the college level but are at risk of not graduating from high school. The secondary focus is on students who are looking for post-secondary and/or career exploration.

Students may not drop a course from their secondary timetable to replace it with a Dual Credit course.

What is the Student Responsible for?
It is up to the student to obtain permission from his/her guidance counsellor and parent/guardian (where required). The student's first and foremost responsibility is to meet all requirements to be successful in the secondary school program that he/she is currently enrolled in.

The student will be enrolled as a college student complete with a college identification number and access to student services with the exception of Psychological assessment opportunities.

What is expected of the Student?

Students enrolled in this program are considered college students and will be treated as any other student in Ontario's college system. They are subject to the same rules of conduct and student responsibilities as all other college students.

Counselling is available to all students enrolled in the college system but it is the student's responsibility to request it.

Students are required to complete an evaluation of the program upon completion of their course(s).

How much will it Cost?
Currently, the costs of academic registration fees, student service fees, book requirements and transportation will be covered by the School to College to Work Initiative funding until such monies are depleted.
 How will students benefit?
  • Experience college life at little or no cost to the student or parent.
  • Observe and exploring a number of postsecondary courses and programs offered at Conestoga College.
  • Earn Ontario College credits while still in high school and having the option to use transferability agreements that are in place among Ontario's colleges.
  • Discover a new and innovative learning environment.
