Alexander College prepares students to enter university programs at the third- and fourth-year level. Students can earn credit towards many degree programs offered by SFU, UBC, UVic and UNBC in the college's University Transfer and Associate Degree programs. Students whose first language is not English can prepare for university studies in the college's University Preparatory Program.
Alexander College also offers vocational programs for students who wish to move quickly into the workforce. Students in the vocational programs who are non-native English speakers complete an intensive ESL program as part of their training.
