Will I meet the academic requirement for my program?

WAEC and NECO English is equivalent to English Language Arts (ELA) 30-2. The student will not qualify for any program that requires ELA 30-1. Students can take the ELA 30-1 equivalent at Red Deer Polytechnic in advance of their goal program through either Academic Upgrading (high school level courses only) or Open Studies (which requires a C or C6 in English but allows students to take College level courses along with their required English course).

We cannot assess international post-secondary documents for admission requirements (except Philippines post-secondary). If the student believes they have taken the required courses in University/College, they may get an assessment for educational purposes through IQAS (International Qualifications Assessment Service) completed. Note that this is an additional cost and typically takes several months to complete.
