Adult High School 30-Level Credit and Bridging Courses

  1. All 30 level classes are 78 hours, have a home study component and meet the requirements of Saskatchewan Learning curriculum.
  2. Students can only register for 1 course per session. A second course in the same session may be taken only when approved by SIAST’s Continuing Education Consultant.
  3. Students who are unable to access a course seat may ask to be placed on the wait list(s) for a maximum of 2 courses per session.
  4. Adult students are not required to have 10 or 20 level prerequisites, but they are strongly recommended. Sufficient skill development is necessary for successful completion.
  5. English language proficiency is necessary for successful completion (recommended mastery of Canadian Language Bench Mark, Level 8). Students currently enrolled in LINC cannot register for these courses.
  6. Canadian citizenship or landed immigrant status is required to qualify for these courses. International students (student visa) do not qualify for these courses.
  7. These courses are intended for adults 18 years and older and out of school for one year or more. Students currently enrolled in a high school require a letter of request from their school division’s director of education and written approval of the SIAST Continuing Education Consultant prior to enrolment in the courses.
  8. Attendance at the first night of classes is mandatory. Students are expected to attend all classes and write all exams.
  9. Textbooks are loaned to student while attending classes. Textbooks must be returned upon completion or leaving.
  10. Classes may be cancelled if there is insufficient student enrolment.

The Adult 12 program allows a student to obtain Grade 12 standing by completing 7 credits, with a minimum of 5 credits at the 30 level. Prerequisite requirements are waived for adult learners. Compulsory courses in the Adult 12 program are as follows:
English Language Arts A30 and B30
One Canadian Studies course at the 30 level (Social Studies 30, History 30 or Native Studies 30)
One mathematics course at the 20 or 30 level
One science course at the 20 or 30 level
Two electives at the 30 level (one may be a Prior Learning credit)

*SIAST Adult Basic Education may not offer all required courses.

Important Notice: Mathematics Curriculum Change

Effective July 1, 2012, all four SIAST campuses will no longer offer Math A30, Math B30 and Math C30. This change is in response to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s directive for the introduction of a new curriculum referred to as WNCP (Western and Northern Canadian Protocol).

There are three pathways of study for the new math:
A. Foundations of Mathematics
B. Pre-Calculus Mathematics
C. Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics
*Each SIAST campus may offer all or part of the three pathways in its programming.

What does this mean for ADULT students who are either upgrading or completing their 20 or 30 level requirements for mathematics?

  1. Students planning to use math for post-secondary entrance need to check the entrance prerequisites required by the institution they wish to attend (check SIAST’s requirements here: www.goSIAST.com). Once the new math prerequisites (pathway and course(s)) have been confirmed, students can register to upgrade/complete the appropriate math course(s).
  2. Students planning to use math for employment purposes should check which math pathway(s) will be accepted by the employer.
  3. Students planning to use math to complete Adult 12 (high school) can use either a 20 level or 30 level course from any of the new pathways as one of the seven credits required for Adult Basic Education completion.
  4. Who should register in the 20 level course prior to taking the 30 level pathway course?
    • Students who are switching pathways
    • Students who have not previously completed any 30 level math courses
    • Students who have completed only Math A30
  5. Students who have completed Math A30 and Math B30 and are choosing the pre-calculus pathway
  6. Who should register in the 30 level courses?
    • Students who have completed Math A30 and Math B30 should have the necessary skills to be successful in Foundations 30 without the 20 level pathway course.
    • Students who have previously completed Math A30, Math B30 and Math C30 should be able to successfully complete Foundations 30, Pre-Calculus 30 or Calculus 30 without the 20 level pathway course.
  7. If you are:
    • unable to determine which pathway would be best for you at this time, or
    • requiring a math credit for the sole purpose of completing your Adult 12, it is suggested that you choose the Foundations of Mathematics pathway.
    • The Calculus 30 curriculum does not change and will continue to be offered in the 2012-2013 academic year.
      • It is each student’s responsibility to investigate and clarify the appropriate pathway for his/her future academic or employment needs.
