Admission requirements

To enter the Academic Upgrading program, you must be at least 18 years old.


One of the following:

  1. Bring a high school transcript for review. The transcript assists with evaluating what course Prerequisites you already have and determines your education plan. You can make an appointment with a CNC advisor or regional Academic Upgrading contact person to discuss your options.

  2. If you do not have the course prerequisites, you are required to take the Academic Upgrading placement assessment. This allows you to be placed at the appropriate course level and assists with determining your educational plan. To get an application form for the Academic Upgrading program and to sign up for the placement, contact CNC Admissions, or a regional Academic Upgrading contact person.

  3. You may have other options if you do not meet the Academic Upgrading admission requirement. We encourage you to meet with a CNC advisor or regional Academic Upgrading contact person.
