Additional information for Post-Secondary Admission:
In addition to being at least 18 years of age students should also possess some high school credits. English 30 or an equivalent is usually required for most college programs. All first year post secondary students are required to enroll in English 200 as a prerequisite to continue in the University Transfer programs (based on testing results).
Students must fulfill the prerequisites of their chosen program before they can advance to the next level. Thus, for example, students cannot enroll in English 255 unless they have credit in English 30 or received credit for an upgrading course, English 200.
