Applicants must have a Diploma of Secondary Studies (DES) or equivalent, including Secondary V Language of Instruction, Secondary V Second Language, Secondary IV Science, Secondary IV Mathematics (Technical & Scientific option or Science option 564-406/426 or 565-406/426*), and Secondary IV History. Students with a DES missing any of the above subjects may be admitted, space permitting, but may be required to complete remedial courses.
*For students graduating from an Adult Education Center, the pre-requisite is Mathematics 436.
Conditional admission to Dawson’s Explorations Science program requires that a student obtain acceptable grades in the Science pre-requisite.
Conditional admission is based on Secondary IV final and Secondary V mid-term grades. Final admission into the Explorations Science program is contingent on obtaining a DES which includes the pre-requisite courses with appropriate grades.
This program is open exclusively to students who are completing or have completed a secondary school diploma AND who have no post-secondary studies.
