For most courses, a student needs to be 19 or older or have a Grade 12 diploma, though for many general interest courses, this qualification does not apply. Some courses have additional requirements, co-requisites and prerequisites which must be met and are listed with the course description. As all Humber courses are delivered in English, students should also have the ability to read, speak and comprehend English in order to ensure success. Some courses are offered specifically for youth and children.
Prerequisites and Prior Learning
A prerequisite is a course (or other qualification) required as preparation for entry to a specific course. If a student considers that they have equivalent educational background or experience through work, volunteer, or other life experiences, they may request a transfer credit from the Office of the Registrar. Visit Transfer Options for more information.
