The Open Learning program is an open admission distance-only mode of study program which provides access to university courses for individuals who wish to study independently and who are not interested in pursuing a degree at the present time. This program is designed to extend the academic resources of the University to individuals who wish to take courses for personal enrichment and/or professional updating.
No limit applies to the total number of distance education courses taken. Individuals wanting to shift from the Open Learning program to a degree program must have completed a minimum of 2.00 credits and have achieved a minimum overall average of 60% in order to apply for transfer.
In addition they must have completed any specific subject requirements or equivalents and their academic record must meet the requirements for continuation of studies. The academic record from any previous post-secondary experience will also be considered in determining admissibility.
For some programs, performance in specific required courses or portfolios or required background experience, where applicable, may be a consideration for admission. For all programs, where qualified applicants exceed the number of spaces available, admission decisions will be made on a competitive basis.
Individuals wishing to apply to Open Learning should contact the Office of Open Learning for application forms and further information.
Students wishing to apply to transfer from Open Learning to a degree program, should contact the Admission Services office.
