Program Description

The College Access Pathways program enables students to obtain prerequisites to meet admission requirements for programs at Yukon College and other academic institutions.

Program Advisors can assist students in the selection of College Access Pathways courses that will provide a pathway to their chosen field of study and education goals. Students may be able to take one or more courses from a future field of study while completing their program prerequisites. Students may, in addition to working on prerequisites, obtain the College Access Pathways diploma from Yukon College.

Independent study

Independent study courses may be available to students who are unable to attend College Access Pathways English and Math classes.

Subject specific assistance is available through the Academic Support Centre, but note that support services are more readily available during the fall and winter terms.

Please make a program advising appointment to for more information and to determine if this is an available option.

Admission Requirements
  • English 10 (min. 65%)

Please see course prerequisites 'Courses' page for additional requirements.


Returning Students

Students who are returning to College Access Pathways within two years of their last attendance date only need to re-apply at the Admissions  Office if a re-admit letter is needed for a sponsor, or to update personal changes such as mailing address, phone number, or name.

New Students

New applicants or students who are changing programs must apply at the Admissions  Office and receive their letter of acceptance prior to seeing a Program Advisor. The Letter of Acceptance must be shown to the Program Advisor.

Program Advising

Acceptance into the program does not guarantee enrollment. An appointment must be made with a Program Advisor (after your Letter of Acceptance is received) who will help students to determine a pathway to their program of choice and to select courses for the term. Some courses have limited enrollment, so students are encouraged to register early.
