Students are required by the Ontario Ministry of Education to have completed the prerequisite course for the course they would like to study. A prerequisite course ensures that students have the prior knowledge required to be successful in the next course. Before students enroll in a course, they must meet the prerequisite requirements established by the Ministry of Education.
When registering for ASK Online Canada courses, students are required to submit a copy of an Ontario Student Transcript (OST), final report card, or a current school credit counselling summary to show that they have completed the prerequisite course.
Most, but not all courses require a prerequisite course. You may check the Ontario Ministry of Education’s list of course prerequisites here.
Some students (for example, international students or homeschooled students or other) are eligible for a prerequisite course waiver.
If you would like to request a prerequisite waiver, please contact [email protected] before you register for your course.
