An adult learner is a student that is 20 years, or older, on September 1 st of the current school year.
This is an ideal learning environment for adult students wanting to:
upgrade for post-secondary
meet apprenticeship requirements
attain their High School Diploma but are unable to commit to a regulated classroom setting
As Adult Learners are no longer funded by Alberta Education the cost of per course is $120 per credit.
A 5-credit core subject would cost $600.00. Adult fees are non-refundable. The annual school fee of $100.00 also applies.
The province of Alberta has a funding program in place to help with the cost of upgrading. See our link to Alberta Works for more information and application forms.
