Program intake has been suspended for the 2013-2014 academic year for courses in Squamish.
The Adult Basic Education (ABE) program offers courses that are tuition-free for all students except International students. Please note that all other University fees apply (admission/readmission and 'Incidental Fees'). The ABE program enables you to upgrade your knowledge of English, Mathematics, Biology, General Science, Chemistry, Physics, History, Social Studies and Computers. You may select from one to five subjects, depending upon your educational and occupational goals. You can pursue any of the following goals:
The program operates September to December, January to April, and May to June, offering instruction in pairs of 1.5 hour classes. Both self-paced and term-paced classes are offered. Enrolment in classes is based on a pre-registration assessment of educational achievement.
Many students benefit by enrolling in ABE courses while registered in university transfer or career/vocational programs at the University.
Students who need more than four months to complete a course may re-register if they are attending regularly and progress is satisfactory. Students who finish a course before the end of the term may immediately register for the next higher course in the given subject.
Students interested in upgrading Computer, English, Math and Career Planning/Study Skills as a full-time package, may wish to consider the College & University Preparation (CUP) program.
