TRU-OL Examinations

The final assessment for a TRU-OL paced, self-paced or independent study course may be a supervised written examination or a final project.

Supervised written examinations are held in TRU-OL examination centres in BC, Canadian Invigilator Network centres in Canada or other supervised location arranged by the student and approved by TRU-OL. Normally, a final project is completed at the student's residence. Examination information is provided in the course package and in the course descriptions.

Instructions for applying to write examinations are included in a student's confirmation of registration package, in the TRU-OL Student Handbook, and in FAQ (search "Examinations" category).
