Special Language Credit Option
Students may be awarded up to four special language credits through two pathways:
- By presenting recognized credentials (transcripts, report cards, certificates of standing, etc.) that demonstrate prior instruction or proficiency in languages other than English or French.
- By successfully completing special language examinations. Arrangements are made through the school principal for a qualified examiner to assess the student's oral and written skills.
Visit the Special Language Credit Option for more information.Manitoba high school students may claim special credit for languages not included in the regular high school program.
The maximum number of Special Language credits is four out of the thirty credits presently required for senior years graduation, one at each level, grade 9 to 12.
Languages not eligible for special credit are English and French.
All students being considered for special language credits will be examined in four areas: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students will not be given credits if they do not possess competency in all four skills.
A student is allowed to apply for one exam per session. Sessions are offered outside of the Pembina Trails School Division twice per year. There is an examination fee for this process. Details are advertised to students in advance of the exam sessions.
