Independent students are Qualifying students who register for individual courses, normally on a part-time basis. Independent students may be interested in taking courses for job-related purposes, to narrow the gap in their studies, to experiment in different subject areas, or to "test the waters" prior to applying to an undergraduate program.
Newly-admitted Independent students are strongly encouraged to contact the Student Transition Centre in order to obtain advising prior to commencing their studies.
Newly-admitted International Independent students can receive advising at:
- International Student Office: for issues related to visa or immigration status
- Student Transition Center: for academic advising
Information and Application
