About the Program

The two- to three-semester Academic Upgrading program is for those who are missing requirements for a college certificate or diploma program. Upon completion, you may be ready to apply to a college-level program or enter into an apprenticeship.

The program offers you daytime or evening classes. You will work in single or multilevel courses, and benefit from the career counselling and assistance with college applications that you receive.

Upgrading courses are available for the 12U English and 12U math prerequisites required for Seneca Degree programs.

Your Career

Once you have completed four advanced level subjects, including English & Communications and an Advanced Level math course, you will be eligible for the Seneca College Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) certificate. The ACE certificate is accepted for entry into apprenticeships and postsecondary college-level programs. Please note that mature students may enter college programs by meeting the program prerequisites and do not require an ACE certificate or other high school level credential.
