Pathways

Sault College students gain the required skills for specialized career fields and successful employment, but our graduates also have the option to continue studies.

Sault College actively partners with other colleges and universities to help make your continued studies easier. Sault College students and graduates have the opportunity to use their Sault College credential to gain admission, advanced standing, or reduce their course load through credit transfer at other institutions.
