Academic Upgrading

Northwestern Polytechnic

Northwestern Polytechnic
Northwestern Polytechnic's Academic Upgrading program can help you earn high school prerequisites needed for apprenticeship programs, and college-level or university courses. Not only do we offer pre-high school and high school equivalency courses and GED testing that can help you unlock your post-secondary education, we've also recently waived the application fee to help you get started. If you arrive at our institution without a high school diploma, you can complete missing courses and then apply for a Certificate of Achievement in Grade 12 Equivalency. Students must complete four Grade 12 level courses, two of them being required Grade 12 equivalent subjects at our institution.
