If you have not graduated from high school, there is no charge for courses. If you have graduated from high school and are taking courses as prerequisites for college or university, there is no charge for courses.

There is a registration fee of $50.00 per trimester, paid when registering for that trimester. This fee is non-refundable. We accept cash or debit.

Students who are currently attending a high school and who also want to attend Jobworks must pay $650.00 per course - this can be paid by the student or by the school division where they are attending high school. This fee is waived for our 3rd trimester only.

Students need to be a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident - if not, they may need a student visa and must pay $650.00 per course.

Graduation Requirements

In order to graduate with an Mature Student High School Diploma you must complete 8 high school credits. Grade 12 Math and Grade 12 English are compulsory. Two additional credits must be at the Grade 12 level. Four other credits can be tailored to suit the student. It is possible to transfer some credits from previous high school learning. We require your transcript in order to transfer credits. Credits for other learning and work experience may be granted through Prior Learning Assessment. See Soozy Petrides for more information.

To qualify to obtain an Mature Student High School Diploma you must be a Manitoba resident and 19 years of age or older and have been out of school for six months.

If you plan to attend University or College, please make sure that you talk to a counsellor to ensure you are taking the right credits for admission. You may need more than just a high school diploma for admission to post secondary institutions.
