Conditional enrollment plan

The Conditional Admission Plan is for students who do not perform as expected on the pre-assessment English exams. Based on student scores, they will be enrolled either traditionally in their program or conditionally.

The conditionally admitted students could take up to two general education courses (optional) for the first semester and the English for Academic Purposes Program which is made up of two modules; one to increase levels of reading/writing, while the other focuses on listening and speaking.

When the English remediation courses are completed successfully, the student can then be fully admitted into their program of study and will receive credit for the general education courses.
