Getting Started

Read about distance education and course delivery formats. Look at the program descriptions, which state the admission requirements (if any) and residency requirements. Familiarize yourself with the course descriptions, too. Note the estimated program costs, learn about student awards and financial support and consider how you can fund your education.

Awards and Financial Support

You can apply for financial support if you meet specific place of residence requirements. If you are a full-time program student, you may be eligible to apply for an award, scholarship, bursary or grant. See Student Awards & Financial Support.


If you have applied for or been admitted to a Science program, you may be eligible for credit based on an assessment of your prior learning. PLAR allows you to earn academic credits for knowledge, training and skills gained through work and life experience.
