Regardless of admission requirements, students must have the high school prerequisites to the courses they require or wish to take in their program.
Students may apply for Open Studies who are needing to complete specific subjects or achieve the required average for the program of their choice, or students who have not chosen a particular program of studies, but who wish to take a variety of courses out of interest.
The necessary prerequisite courses for the university transfer or career program selected should normally be completed during the first year at the College.
Students in Open Studies may complete their admission requirements and start on other courses at the same time. Students admitted to Open Studies but who enrolled in two or more upgrading courses per semester will have their program of admission changed to Academic Upgrading. Students enrolling in nine credits of Open Studies are considered full-time and will have their applications reviewed by Admissions. If you wish to be a full-time student in Open Studies, you will need to meet admissions requirements listed.
