Pre-Business Program


NEW! International students who are interested in starting the Business Administration program at Coast Mountain College but do not meet the English language entry requirements can sign up for this option.

Students need to have scored 5.0 with no bands lower than 5.0, but it is recommended that those with scores closer to 6.5 will have a stronger likelihood of success in this program. This program runs January – April, ahead of the May intake for the Business Administration program at the Smithers campus

In this Pre-Business Program, students register for ENGL 057, which provides 220 hours of Academic English instruction over the semester and, for those who need it, MATH 046. Students must complete ENGL 057 by the end of the semester with a final grade of C+ or higher in order to enter into the Business program.
