SAIT's academic upgrading courses prepare students for admission to SAIT's career programs. Our courses provide students with a flexible approach for their transition into post-secondary studies. Courses can be taken part-time or full-time in the day, evening or online. Students become accustomed to the SAIT environment and culture and develop successful strategies for learning.
Our academic upgrading courses are Alberta high school equivalency courses, not Alberta Education courses. They may 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. Government grant funding may be available for eligible students.
For more information on funding, please visit Funding Advising - Skills Investment Program (SIP). Student loans are not available for upgrading courses.
It is recommended that all students have access to a personal computer.
