Time Commitment

Although courses are offered part time online it is important to note that they are term-specific with set dates for assignments and exams, and each 3-credit course will require 10-15 hours a week of your time. The time of the day you choose to be online and/or working on your assignments is generally up to you.

Program Completion

As a part-time student you are encouraged to complete the program within five years but have up to seven years. It will take students a minimum of 3.5 years to complete the program depending on the course offerings.

Please note: Students who take a break in studies of twelve (12) consecutive months or more will need to reapply.
