Academic Upgrading

Prepare for your future. Out of school for a while? Need credits to finish high school or qualify for a career training program at a college or university? We deliver flexible academic courses to prepare you for further study.


The Alberta Government has announced that post-secondary colleges and universities will be returning to face-to-face delivery where possible for September 2021.

That means the Academic Upgrading program is making plans to welcome students to campus for fall 2021.

Rest assured, Portage College is following all health and safety regulations as set out by Alberta Health Services and if there are any changes or adjustments to the program - we will make those announcements to the public. Be sure to check back here often for updates.
