Comprehensive Arts and Science (CAS) Transition is designed for high school and Adult Basic Education graduates who would like to improve their general employability skills or who are lacking either the academic courses or the required grades to meet the entrance requirements of the college program they would like to enter. The Transition program also provides a valuable “refresher” for mature students who have been away from education, training and/or the workforce for some time.

Students in the CAS Transition program will be provided the opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills in preparation for further post-secondary training and/or employment. In addition to courses in English, Mathematics and Sciences, students will be able to select courses from a range of General Education and Social Science courses as well as Exploration and Student Success courses. Transition courses such as Critical Thinking and Effective Learning provide students with the opportunity to develop the essential skills and strategies for successful learning in any college program. The completion of elective courses from other program areas will enable students to gain credits which may be used in a subsequent college program.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
