School of Access & Academic Preparation

Are you missing academic skills or prerequisites for university study? Prepare now through programs offered by the School of Access & Academic Preparation.

Academic upgrading

Are you missing a grade 11 or 12 course as a prerequisite for your university program?  You can take Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses to satisfy your missing prerequisites, improve your GPA, and if required, complete your Grade 12 graduation requirements.

Are you ready for first-year university, but need an extra boost? Our College and University Preparation (CUP) program offers the support you need to make a successful start.

Find out more about both ABE and CUP at Academic Upgrading

Is English your second language? 

The English for Academic Purposes (ESL) department has courses to help you improve the English language skills you’ll need to succeed at university.

Accessible programs

If you're a student living with a learning disability or a social, physical or mental health challenge we have specialized courses to help you transition from high school to post-secondary education or meaningful employment.

 

Resources for CapU students

We’re here to support you at every step of your education journey. Check out the Learning Commons – an area for all students to grow in confidence as they master course material and gain new skills. Our specialized support centres include:

CapU’s Career Development Centre can help you find employment throughout your studies and as you move into the professional world. 

And keep an eye out for the many student associations that offer networking events, opportunities to meet industry leaders from your field of study, and social get-togethers.
