If you are a 2020 High School graduate with an ENR or CIC notation on your transcript, you can enrol in University Prep courses to get the core requirements you need for admission to UNB.

About the program

The University Prep program is an online, non-credit preparatory program that will help you reach your university admission goals. It will also help you establish strong study skills and start you on a path to academic success.

With a focus on comprehensive student support, the University Prep program provides:

  • Academic advising designed to help you pick your courses and identify short and long-term goals
  • High school-equivalent courses necessary for admission to many UNB programs
  • Initial support services to help you navigate the system and get the information you need
  • Orientation guidance and support to make you feel more comfortable and confident at UNB

How do I know if I need to enrol in University Prep courses?

You will need to have your updated High School transcript sent to the UNB Registrar’s Office. Once received and processed, you will be notified if you need any upgrading to meet UNB admission requirements. If upgrading is required, you may enrol in University Prep program courses to help you meet the admission requirements for entry into UNB's degree programs.

Once you complete your course(s), the Registrar’s Office will reassess your admission requirements and contact you. If you have any questions, please contact the Admissions Office: (Fredericton) or (Saint John).


The University Prep courses are free of charge to any New Brunswick 2020 High School graduate who is admitted to UNB and presents an ENR/CIC notation on their transcript in a required core course for admission to UNB.
