Admission requirements

Obtain your BC Adult Graduation Diploma (BC AGD)

Are you planning to enter the ABT Administrative Assistant program with one of the following?

  • Mature student status
  • ABE/CCP Advanced Certificate
  • GED Certificate

If so, after completing the ABT program, you’ll be eligible to receive an exit certificate. This is equivalent to a BC Adult Graduation Diploma (formerly known as an Adult Dogwood).

  • Successful Completion of Grade 12 (with a minimum of Communications 12 and any grade 11 math or equivalent). For mature student status, see note 1 below.
  • Completion of a keyboarding proficiency assessment with a minimum speed of 20 net words per minute, or permission from the department (see note 2 below).
  • Notes

    1. To explore the mature student status option, consult a CNC Advisor or Regional Principal.
    2. The keyboarding assessment may take the form of an original signed transcript or a letter on institutional letterhead from a teacher of typing, or an assessment by a CNC Applied Business Technology instructor, or designate. To arrange an assessment, please contact your local campus.
    3. This is a demanding program, and applicants with only the minimum admission requirements may experience difficulties in completing the program.
