Dual Credit

Courses for high school students at Coast Mountain College.

Our Dual Credit program is a partnership between your School District and Coast Mountain College. It gives you an opportunity to earn dual credits on your high school transcript and your CMTN transcript.

Dual Credit students are supported by their home school district, which pays the program tuition. Each school district has a different application process for dual credit.

Start your post-secondary education early and plan ahead. Take advantage of Dual Credit opportunities at CMTN.
