SAIT academic upgrading courses prepare students for admission to SAIT career programs. For SAIT program admission requirements, refer to the appropriate sections of the SAIT Academic Calendar. SAIT academic upgrading courses may also be accepted for admission purposes by other Alberta post-secondary educational institutions. Check the current Alberta Transfer Guide published by The Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer for a listing of all formalized transfer agreements among Alberta post-secondary institutions. SAIT academic upgrading courses provide students with a flexible approach for their transition into post-secondary studies. Students become accustomed to the SAIT environment and culture and develop successful strategies for learning. Government grant funding may be available for eligible students. For more information on funding, please check the following website: www.sait.ca/sip. Student loans are not available for upgrading courses. It is recommended that all students have access to a personal computer.
