Delivery mode

What you can expect 



  • Weekly classes with scheduled attendance at a specific location and time for some or all course activities
  • Class sizes will be at a reduced capacity to practice safe physical distancing
  • This delivery option is subject to adjustments imposed by public health requirements for physical distancing

In-person & online rotation (LEC8) 

  • Classes will rotate between attendance in-person and online delivery. 
  • Class sizes will be at a reduced capacity to practice safe physical distancing

Online synchronous  (LEC9) 

  • Online attendance is expected at a specific time for some or all course activities

Online asynchronous

  • Lectures can be viewed 'on demand' and students can go through course material at their own pace
  • All students are still required to meet deadlines for course work as noted in their course syllabus 

Regardless of the delivery option that you choose, it's important to read the course syllabus for each of your classes! Your professor will outline everything you need to know about when classes take place, how to get in touch with them, academic expectations and more.

Next Steps: After You Enrol in Courses

Becoming a registered student means you have enrolled in courses AND paid the minimum tuition amount of your fees (or officially deferred them). Your fees will be posted to your invoice on ACORN in mid-July.

To avoid being removed from your enrolled courses, make the Minimum Payment to Register as indicated on your financial account in ACORN – or defer your fees (if applicable) – by the published deadlines. More information about fee payment and fee deferrals on the Fees & Financial Aid page.
