I am currently completing an Open Learning program

Once you have applied and been accepted into a program, your Program Advisor will assist you from your application to your graduation – from app to cap! Once you have been admitted to your program, your advisors will review your transfer credits, assist you with planning your program and understanding your program requirements, review your course selection, approve your Letter of Permission requests, help you to navigate TRU support services when necessary, and finally, complete your final graduation audit.

I would like to take a single Open Learning course

You may register for most courses without being enrolled in a program. Anyone can take courses for upgrading, to fill the gaps in an another program, expand their knowledge in an area of interest without completing a credential, or begin taking courses that you may use later if you choose to complete a credential. Enrol in courses only.
