The Academic Upgrading program offers flexible options for students to gain the entrance requirements for a post-secondary program. Courses are offered over 3 semesters and students can take from one to three courses per semester. The fall and winter semesters are 15 weeks in length and both day and evening options are available. The spring semester is 12 weeks in length with limited courses offerings during the day only.
On acceptance to the program, students will be contacted by the program with instructions about how to enrol in courses. If necessary, students can book an appointment to design the best course of study for their needs.
Students who have an out of province transcript or International Assessment of foreign documents, will need to contact the Academic Upgrading office by e-mailing to email@example.com or call 780 471 8534 to enroll into classes.
