Didn’t graduate from high school?

If you have not graduated, but think you have the equivalent of courses or acceptable technical background, contact the instructor at 604-847-5429 to make an appointment for an orientation and assessment to determine if you can be admitted.


Wait for the next intake in which there is space

After you have submitted proof of graduation or interim grades, we enter your name on a waitlist for the program’s next start date. 

Starting in late spring, we offer seats to the first 20 students on the waitlist. That is why you should book your exam and provide your documents as soon as you can.

Before classes start, we will call you to notify you of registration procedures. If we cannot reach you after three attempts, your seat will go to the next applicant on the list.
