Out of Provincial Grade 12 Equivalency Chart

The courses listed are administered by the provincial ministry of education for that province or territory. 

If applying to a program at VCC, it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide proof of the course being equivalent to what is shown. This may mean obtaining a full course syllabus from the school, or have the school provide written verification that the course is equivalent to the provincial ministries course (this verification must be sent to us directly from the educational institution). This may be required especially when the education presented was taken under past curriculum used; may have a different course code and title to current curriculum.

This chart only provides information on the Grade 12 levels. If a lower level of course is required for admission to programs (Grade 10 or 11 levels), most provinces follow a numeric course code sequence that indicates the grade level. For example, in British Columbia the course code sequence is 10, 11, and 12; indicating Grade 10, 11, and 12 respectively. In Alberta, the course code sequence is 10, 20, and 30.
