Upgrading Courses

Students who do not meet our high school requirements or are missing prerequisite courses may upgrade their courses through the University of Manitoba.

Grade 12 Mathematics
The University of Manitoba offers a Math Skills course in Extended Education which provides students with the necessary background to continue with university level math and science coursework. You may take Math Skills simultaneously with other university courses as long as these courses do not require a math prerequisite. Math Skills is a non-credit course offered in the fall, winter, spring and summer terms.

Note: This course may not be used as an admission requirement to the University of Manitoba.

Grade 12 Chemistry and Physics
Students who require a Grade 12 level chemistry or physics may take the following courses as a means of satisfying university courses prerequisites. Both are non-credit courses usually offered within numerous terms each year. You must apply and be accepted to enroll in these courses.

Note: You may take these preparatory courses simultaneously with other university courses as long as they do not require the area you are studying as a prerequisite.
