Overview

Are you interested in enrolling in a college or university program, but need to upgrade your academic qualifications? The College/University Prep classes prepare students to meet academic requirements for entry into college and applied degree level programs.

Math courses offered at the 069 and 079 level satisfy the math entry requirements for most college level programs, while 196/197/198 level courses satisfy the entry requirements for most applied/collaborative degree programs. (Note that the prerequisites for these 196/197/198 courses are often the 069 and 079 level courses.)

If you are interested in applying to an institution other than Seneca, and you don't have the required high school credits, then the prerequisites required can be from college courses taken over 2 semesters, such as MTH069 and MTH079. These will be considered as Grade 12U equivalents, but they are not Ministry of Education approved credits. Therefore, keep the course outlines and addenda for case-by-case reviews.

Enrolment in a math upgrading course is determined by whether or not you have already completed math to the Grade 12C level.

  • If you have not completed Grade 12C math, you may need to complete both MTH069 and MTH079.
  • If you have already completed Grade 12 and need a refresher, you can enrol in MTH149 which is a college credit. This course is available in a classroom setting or on-line.
  • Successful completion of MTH079 satisfies the entry requirements for most college level programs.

Successful completion of MTH196, MTH197 or MTH198 satisfies the math entry requirements for most applied degree programs.

Math Upgrading

MTH065
Foundations of Business Math
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Basic arithmetic skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division)

This course provides a review of basic arithmetic and algebra as well as providing students with mathematical tools and concepts needed for other college courses and in future employment. This course is to prepare students for later courses in Business, Finance and Accounting.

MTH069
Mathematics Level I
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Basic arithmetic skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

This is an introductory course in mathematics. By the end of the course, students will have acquired problem-solving and mathematical skills and have demonstrated the ability to apply mathematical principles to typical problems that arise in a variety of work places, including business, science, health care and technology. Using a modular approach, MTH069 also provides the first step for students wishing to upgrade their math skills to the Grade 12C level.

MTH079
College Preparatory Math
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

MTH069 (B grade or higher) or permission of the coordinator.

This modular course provides the second step for students who require upgrading in mathematics. On successful completion of both steps, students will have obtained a level of proficiency that is equivalent to Grade 12 (for college entrance purposes). It does not, however, qualify the student for an Ontario Grade 12 math credit.

MTH149
Foundations of Mathematics
Availability
 

Prerequisite(s):

Grade 12C/U Math or Equivalent

This one-semester course provides a review of fundamental math concepts. These essential math skills are required for success in college programs requiring a solid foundation in mathematics, such as sciences, technology or business. It is designed to meet the needs of individuals that have completed Grade 12 math but need a quick review in preparation for college level or skills training programs. Successful completion of the course is generally accepted as equivalent to a Grade 12 standing in mathematics. It does not, however, qualify the student for an Ontario Grade 12 math credit.
