Upgrading & Access Programs

Academic upgrading prepares new and returning students for enrollment in university level courses.

Academic Upgrading (ACDU) courses feature extended hours and intensity. This is one of the best ways to quickly earn pre-requisites or upgrade your academic fundamentals like Math and English.

The English Language program allows students to improve their English skills in a pure English environment. Students are assessed and placed at the appropriate level before being enrolled into classes. CNC's approach allows students to progress to higher levels of language skill, concentrating on reading, writing, speaking, and listening. 

Certificate, Diploma, Associate Degree & Post Diploma Programs

Certificate, Diploma, Associate Degree and Post Diploma are designed for students who need to 'top-up' their education to get mid-level jobs.

These programs are for experienced students. They require successful study habits and techniques to benefit from intense and rewarding courses. Course work is aimed to keep you focused and directed towards success.

University Credit

University Transfer, College and Career Prep

2 years at CNC + 2 years at a university = a 4-year Bachelor degree.

How it Works

  • Complete a 2-year Associate Degree (Science or Arts) or University Transfer program at CNC.
  • Transfer those credits to a Canadian University to complete a 4-year Bachelor program.

The BC Transfer Guide will show you how CNC courses transfer to other post-secondary schools.

Our transfer students are known to perform above average when compared to students who have transferred from other BC colleges.

Transfer students also find that overall the 2+2 study path is less expensive because CNC tuition costs are less than at University.

Where to Transfer After CNC

CNC credits transfer easily to the following BC Universities:

    Thanks to the smaller class sizes at CNC I have the opportunity to develop solid instructor-student relationships as well as the flexibility to adapt classroom presentations to accommodate the needs of each student. As an instructor that cares about students’ success, it’s so rewarding to connect with my students and to encourage and assist them in achieving their goals. I love to see each student flourish and witness their progression, both academically in the classroom and personally in the university environment as a whole.
