Course Planning

Developing a Course Plan

Part-Time students must plan their academic progression well in advance.  The program has developed a course planning tool to aid in this process.  Although the tool does include a recommended course plan, students have the ability to work with the program coordinator to develop an alternate plan that suits their needs.
