Adult Students Information
1. For adults who have NOT GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, Adult Secondary School Completion Courses remain tuition free, but some require a refundable resource deposit. This applies to students who are BC residents, born before July 1, 1998 AND who are Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents or have a Work Permit valid for at least one year.
2. EDUCATION GUARANTEE Changes - updated December 4, 2014
High school courses in the K-12 sector will remain tuition-free for anyone working toward an Adult Dogwood Diploma or for adults looking to take basic, introductory courses.
Consistent with this change, beginning May 1, 2015, the Ministry of Education will no longer provide funding to school districts for tuition-free upgrading courses for adults who already hold a high school diploma.
3. Graduated Adults must pay a tuition fee of $550 per course and some will also require an additional refundable resource deposit.
All our courses remain free for school age BC residents, but some require a refundable resource deposit.
