SAIT Academic Upgrading courses prepare students for admission into SAIT career programs. These courses are Alberta high school equivalency courses, not Alberta Education courses. They may be accepted for admission purposes by other Alberta post-secondary educational institutions. You may be required to take placement tests for selected courses.


SAIT academic upgrading courses provide students with a flexible approach for their transition to post-secondary studies. Courses can be taken full-time in the day as well as part-time in the evening or online. Students become accustomed to the SAIT environment and culture and develop successful strategies for learning.


Government grant funding may be available for eligible students. Review foundational learning program and learn about the funding options available. Student loans are not available for upgrading courses.
