Do you need to improve your high school grades or do you just need a few courses to help make you admissible to your program of choice? Then University Preparation may be the program for you.

University Preparation provides a full range of core high school courses that are prerequisites for college or university programs, skills-training programs, apprenticeship training or technical institutes. These courses are offered in an exciting university environment with quality instruction and individualized attention to help ensure success.

Through this program you will receive a personalized assessment of your current academic standing, as well as a customized education plan to satisfy your future program requirements.

International applicants (students studying in Canada on a study permit or other visa) interested in taking University Preparation courses must apply to MacEwan's Academic Pathways program.


Funding is limited; potential students are encouraged to contact the program office regarding availability. Applying to the University Preparation program does not guarantee a funding spot.
