Prepare for college programs and/or employment by taking Academic Upgrading courses. Study only the courses you need to meet the admission requirements for your college program of choice, or earn the Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) certificate. The ACE certificate is recognized across Ontario as a Grade 12 equivalency for admission to college and by many employers as meeting their minimum employment standard.
Delivered as a continuous intake program, you can start in any month of the year. Full and part-time study options as well as a choice of timetables are offered. Placement tests determine which English and/or mathematics course you start in. Based on your results and preferences, your Orientation team works with you to develop a personal learning plan. The time it takes you to complete your plan depends on which course(s) you start in, which course(s) you need to reach your academic or employment goals and your own rate of progress.
To obtain the ACE Certificate you must complete ENL5958 College Preparation Communication or ENL0076 Communications: Preparation for Degree Programs, and MAT5951 Intermediate Mathematics, plus two electives with departmental approval.
This program is well-suited for you if:
- You are ready to set goals for the future.
- You are willing to work and show progress.
- You are prepared to attend regularly, whether in person or in a remote setting.
- You are able to work independently.
Every attempt is made to ensure the accuracy of the information in this publication. The College reserves the right to modify or cancel any course, program, fee, timetable, or campus location at any time.
To apply to Algonquin College, you need an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or an equivalent.
If you do not have a High School Diploma:
- Algonquin College accepts General Educational Development (GED) certificates, and Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) Ontario College certificates.
- If you are over the age of 19, or will be by your program start date, you may also apply as a mature student without the equivalent to a High School Diploma.
In both instances, your application will be considered on an individual basis and you may be invited to complete an assessment at the Test Centre for English and/or Math if subject specific grades are required for your program of choice.
You will also need to meet the specific program requirements in order to be accepted. For more information about admissions requirements specific to your program of choice, go to the program page by searching at the top right, or find your program here.
Algonquin College offers Academic Upgrading courses in English, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Computer skills and success strategies. These courses improve your skills before starting in a program and can be used to meet admission requirements.
