Note 1: Students admitted to the program based on successful completion of one year of full-time academic study at the post-secondary level, but without ELA 30-1 or equivalent, will need to complete English upgrading during their first year of admission. As a result, it may take longer than four terms of full-time study to complete the MSPC diploma.
Note 2: Students intending to transfer to a university program are advised to ensure they have met the entrance requirements for that program (e.g. ELA 30-1, Social Studies 30, etc.) before taking the university transfer courses that are part of the MSPC program. Students may choose to take the 30-level requirements while completing the requirements of the MSPC diploma program, though as a result, it may take longer than four terms of full-time study to complete the diploma.
Note 3: In addition to the program admission requirements, applicants whose first language is not English must demonstrate English language proficiency. Refer to the Admission section of the Academic Calendar for further information.
