Our University prep courses give you the opportunity to meet admission requirements for post-secondary studies. If you're missing a grade 12 course, or need to improve a grade for admission to college or university, our courses should be your first choice.  

Taught by our area's leading high school instructors, our programs will support you in building an academic foundation for your academic journey, and will prepare you to learn for a lifetime

Students who have not graduated from high school or have obtained a GED should contact us directly to learn about available options for continuing their learning: email extend@smu.ca or call 902-420-5492


You will receive one (1) official transcript upon completion of your course. One (1) additional transcript will be issued free of charge if requested within 4 months of completing the course. 

For all other transcript requests you will be charged a fee of $5.00 per transcript.
