Credits and course load
Most courses are worth 3 credits and most programs consider 15 credits (5 courses) a full course load for one term. You need to take a minimum of 9 credits to be considered full-time for the purposes of student loans, unless you have been approved through Services to Students with Disabilities to take a reduced course load.
Second-year Journalism majors in the Bachelor of Communication Studies must supply their own Apple laptop, peripherals, and software. If you need to purchase a new computer for this purpose, the details and specifications are outlined each year (usually in early July). If you already own an Apple laptop, it must meet the minimum standard.
You will need your laptop for the first week of classes in your second year. During your first year, there are a number of dedicated desktop computers available to students in the Library and various labs.
