Why study in the summer?

  • Upgrading – Need admission requirements for a fall program? Do your Upgrading courses in the summer and be ready to roll in September.
  • University Studies - Lighten your fall workload by knocking off a course or two ahead of time.
  • Diploma Programs – Been out of school for a while? Nervous about becoming a full-time student? Ease into the learning lifestyle by taking a course this summer. English 150 is a good place to start.
  • Certificate Programs - Start a career program in June or July and be ready for employment while other people are still in school.


Maybe you need to meet admission requirements, or maybe you want to refresh your memory from a course taken years ago. Camosun’s upgrading courses will prepare you for success as you continue your education.

By easing your fall workload, you’ll have more time to focus on good grades, a part-time job, or being with family and friends.
