Secondary school courses for program prerequisites
Upgrading courses and programs are available to help you gain program prerequisites for college and university transfer programs. We also offer customized math and English upgrading courses that lead directly into certain career programs.
For courses or programs that have a secondary school prerequisite, there may be an alternative Camosun course (or combination of courses). For example, if you need Biology 11, take BIOL 102 at Camosun.
When considering English 12 or math 11 or 12 alternative courses, we've got options and advice for you to consider:
If you have any questions after scanning the list below, contact an Academic Advisor.

Math 10 refers to either Principles of Math 10 or Foundations of Mathematics and Pre-calculus 10; Math 11 refers to either Principles of Math 11 or Pre-calculus 11; and Math 12 refers to either Principles of Math 12 or Pre-calculus 12.
