Can you advise me on what program I should take?

Enrolling in a post-secondary program is based on several factors and requires research and choices only you can make.

We suggest you find and choose the career or occupation you want to pursue and then find the program that trains you for it. Therefore, we cannot tell you which program to take.

We provide the tools and steps you can take in making your decision, and many assessments can provide you with occupational and educational options.

For more information on prerequisites, transfer of credits, and your eligibility for a program, attend Open House or a program information session or connect with a program advisor.
