Camosun College South Island Partnership (SIP)
The South Island Partnership (SIP) includes Camosun College and the five south Vancouver Island school districts: SD61 Victoria, SD62 Sooke, SD63 Saanich, SD64 Gulf Islands and SD79 Cowichan Valley. Working together with local industry leaders, SIP provides Dual Credit programs and courses to give high school students a head start on their post-secondary and career paths. Courses vary from year to year.
Dual Credit for high school students Dual Credit programs and courses let you earn high school and college credits at the same time. In most cases your college tuition will be covered by the school district.
Why take Dual Credit? You can save time and money by taking Dual Credit programs and courses offered through the South Island Partnership (SIP). You’ll be a college student while you’re still working on completing high school. Dual Credit opportunities are available in trades, technology, health & human services, business, sport & exercise and arts & science university transfer. In many programs, Camosun reserves seats especially for SIP students.
Costs In almost all cases, the cost of your Camosun tuition will be covered by the school district. You will be responsible for the application fee and any personal safety gear or other supplies that may be required. As a SIP student, you will be exempt from paying Camosun’s student society fees (which means you won’t be eligible for the subsidized bus pass.)
