# Mathematics Qualifying (MATQ)

This is a list of the Mathematics Qualifying (MATQ) courses available at KPU.

Note:
These courses are not at the post-secondary level and therefore are not eligible for Education Tax Credit or Tuition Tax Credit (T2202A).
These courses meet the criteria of Adult Basic Education, and are therefore tuition-free for domestic students (Canadian citizens and permanent residents). Regular student fees and student association fees apply.
