Adult Learning, Upgrading and Access

 

Assiniboine’s adult learning programs offer a variety of learning options to meet your needs. Classes are available on-campus, full-time or part-time, day or evening in Brandon or Dauphin. Our programs are designed for anyone who would like to:

  • achieve their high school diploma
  • improve their skills
  • increase their marks in a course
  • earn prerequisites to enter college or university 

 

Affordable education

Our high school courses are tuition-free. Students do pay materials and Students’ Association fees, which amounts to less than $50 per course. There is no application fee to apply to this program. 

 

Are you looking to earn your high school diploma?

We have a few options to choose from. 

Mature Student High School 

The Mature Student High School diploma requires eight credits and is equivalent to a regular high school diploma. We will develop an individual education plan for you based on the credits you may already have, your goals and your current academic skills.

Integrated Model

The integrated programs allow you to accelerate your education and graduate with both a Mature Student High School diploma and a college certificate in less time than it would take you to do them separately. Our dual credit courses will allow you to earn both high school and college credits at the same time.

Flex Learning

Brandon's Adult Collegiate follows a flex learning model for its programs. This competency-based model provides a flexible learning option for students who are unable to attend classes on a daily basis. Flex learning allows students to work on their own with access to online learning resources, and a classroom and instructor support every afternoon. Attendance every day is not mandatory, but students are encouraged to stay on track with the completion of course objectives. Students wanting to use the flex learning model must meet with the student success advisor to determine if this option is right for them.

Note: Not all courses are available in the flex learning model. See the student success advisor for more information.

 

Do you have your high school diploma, but would like to upgrade your education?

If you have already achieved your high school diploma, but want to take more high school courses to meet post-secondary admission requirements or upgrade skills for a job, the Mature Student High School – Additional Credits program was created with you in mind. You are eligible to take up to four courses tuition-free.

 

Getting started

The first step is to book an appointment with a student success advisor in Brandon or Dauphin. Our advisor will meet with you and discuss your goals, give you information about our programs and help you develop an education plan.
