Upgrading & Adult Education

Students between the ages of 18-22 who have not completed the requirements for Grade 12 graduation may register at Nutana Collegiate, Royal West Campus, or Online Learning Secondary to complete the courses needed.  There is no charge for tuition.

Students under the age of 22 who have graduated and wish to upgrade courses may take up to two classes at no charge per school year if they are registered by September 30. Students pay tuition of $500 per class if they register after September 30.

For more information students may contact one of the following programs:

Royal West Campus

Students Over Age 22

In Saskatchewan, students can attend school in the school division where they reside if they have not yet attained the age of 22 years. Beginning in 2022-23, Saskatoon Public Schools will no longer provide programming for students 22 or over.

A 21-year-old student who has not yet graduated, is registered with the division, and is actively attending classes on or before September 30 does not pay an adult student tuition fee for that school year, even if they turn 22 during the school year.  

For students age 22 or older, there are course options available for upgrading and fulfilling graduation requirements. Please contact one of the following organizations for more information on their offerings. Current Saskatoon Public Schools students who are turning 22 should contact their school counsellor to assist with transition and academic planning.
