General Requirements: All applicants must meet the general admission requirements for Lethbridge College programs, as indicated in the Admissions section of the calendar.
Academic Requirements: The Academic Upgrading program is open to any person who has the desire and the academic skills to be successful at a selected course level. Admission is based on academic background, skills assessment, and advisement.
Registration Changes: Course registrations or “add/drops” must be carried out in consultation with an Academic Advisor and sponsorship supervisor, if applicable. It is the student’s responsibility to register for and maintain credit minimums as required for sponsorship and to ensure their registration is sufficient to meet their sponsoring agencies’ requirements.
Courses may be offered in a variety of formats. The format in which a course is offered may change at short notice, depending on enrolment and student needs. The current delivery formats may include: on campus/face-to-face (you will attend class at a scheduled time and location. An instructor will be physically present to assist you); online (the course is delivered entirely in an online environment); blended (the course is delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online).
New applicants are accepted into the Academic Upgrading program for courses beginning in the Fall (September) or Winter (January).
