CapU offers some courses tuition-free for Canadian citizens and permanent residents, as well as seniors.

If you're a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you can take free classes in:

  • Adult Basic Education, where classes include English, math, sciences, computers and study skills.   
  • English for Academic Purposes, where you can take English-as-a-second-language (ESL) courses for free.

Please note, Incidental Fees and Special Services Fees will still apply.

Free tuition for seniors

If you're 65 years of age or older before the start of a term, you don't have to pay tuition fees and can register for classes for free. You'll need to provide proper identification, and you'll still be responsible for tuition surcharges and any other fees, including Incidental Fees.
