Course Planning

Developing a Course Plan

Part-Time students should plan their academic progression well in advance.  Part-time tuition is the same amount for 0, 1 or 2 courses, so it is not ideal for a student to have no courses left to take in a term.  To assist you, we have developed several course plan options for you to choose from.  Any modification to these approved course plans requires permission from the Program Director. 

General Guidelines to Follow

Should a student wish to adjust one of the approved plans, please keep the following in mind:

  • Students can take 0, 1, or 2 courses per term.
