Program Delivery

Why are some courses still being taught through alternate delivery methods?

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing requirements, winter semester programs will continue to be delivered in the same format as they have been this fall, via alternative delivery. For the winter semester, lecture-based programs will continue to be delivered in a remote/virtual environment while required labs, simulations, and specific assessments as confirmed by individual courses will be delivered on campus.


This means many services for students will continue to be offered virtually. Students have access to the same extensive resources and services, and in some cases the virtual format affords greater flexibility and options. The current model of reduced on-campus services will continue. Information about how to access the available services is included below.


Where do I find details about how my program will be delivered?

Information about program delivery will be shared closer to the start of the winter semester. This information will be shared through your student email, posted on our website, and social media channels as it becomes available.
