How long are the courses?

Unless otherwise specified, all courses run for 6 weeks. Each course is divided into two classes: Week 1 and Week 2.

Can I drop a course?

If you don’t visit the Week 2 class of your courses within 13 days, you will be automatically dropped. If you need to be dropped earlier, staff can assist you.

I was dropped from a course when I didn’t want to be! Why?

You must remain active in your courses in order to stay enrolled. Students who do not access the Week 1 and Week 2 classes of a course within 13 days of the start date will be automatically dropped from their courses.

If I’m dropped, can I take the course another time?

Yes. If you are dropped from a course, you can enroll in other sessions at a later date.

How does the interactive portion of the class work?

Each course, and related class, has a dedicated discussion area. If you need help, post your question in the appropriate discussion area, and the instructor, teaching assistant or one of your fellow students will respond.

Is there a limit to how many times I can take a course?

No. You can take a course as many times as you need to complete it.

Is there a limit to how many courses I can take in a month / year?

No. You can take as many courses as you like.
