Start & Completion Dates

Most of the courses offered by TRU's Distance Education for Faculty of Science are offered on a continuous intake basis. Therefore you may register to begin a course or program of studies at any time you wish.

Most courses have eight months from the date of registration to complete all course work including the final exam. These generous timelines are intended to allow for any delays which may occur. Students should generally plan for about 4 months to complete the course as they would for any standard college or university course. Please see program or course specific information for exceptions.

Most of our courses are equivalent to a standard 3 credit course which represents approximately 40 hours of classroom time along with 60-80 hours of study time. Therefore expect most courses to take approximately 100-120 hours of your focused time.
