Is going to university your goal? Adult Basic Education at TRU can help get you there. Students aiming to achieve specific high school course requirements for TRU programs can take Adult Basic Education (U-Prep) courses in English, math, sciences, computing, business, and social sciences to upgrade or complete these requirements.

If you are applying to an Open Admission program (Arts, Business, Science, Fine Arts & Computing Science) you may be able to start your first year while taking U-Prep courses.
