Is there an average requirement?
No, a student simply needs to be in Grade 12. Students interested in applying to a particular program should review average requirements and deadlines.
What are the dates for the class?
The class follows the university schedule. Term 1 runs September - December and Term 2 runs January - April.
Can a school/division cover tuition?
Yes. If your school is interested in covering tuition they should contact our office for more information.
Should I work the class into my school day?
It is a good idea to take a spare in your high school schedule, as you will need time to go through the modules and work on assignments.
Can I use the class for programs other than business?
This class is a required course in the Bachelor of Commerce program, but may also be used in a number of degrees offered through Arts & Science, Agriculture, and Engineering. If you are thinking of applying to a college other than Edwards, it is always a good idea to check in with them to see if and how the class can be used in their program.
