VCC to launch tuition-free adult upgrading pathways

Vancouver Community College will launch two tuition-free adult upgrading pathways this summer, thanks to support from the Government of British Columbia. The programs will be tailored to adult learners and mature students who may have had interrupted or incomplete learning. One pathway will support Indigenous learners with customized learning approaches, providing a low barrier introduction to postsecondary education. The other pathway will help adult learners upgrade high school math and science courses to prepare them to enter health care assisting, nursing, practical nursing, and dental care programs. Both programs are tuition free and open to domestic students.
