We are excited to announce that while we will continue with our hybrid delivery of courses this September, we will also be delivering some classes in the face-to-face mode. Accordingly, our Richmond campus will be open to welcome students back to select on-campus learning on September 6, 2022. Students who are not able to attend classes for legitimate reasons, for example, due to their out-of-country location, personal issues and/or health concerns, should email the Registrar’s Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request an exemption from in-class delivery. During the year-end holiday break, we will reassess our modes of delivery to ensure that we are addressing and meeting our students’ and faculty’s needs in the most satisfactory manner possible.
We are introducing multiple modes of delivery to ensure that all our students will be able to secure their study permits from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as they have planned. IRCC has indicated that it will not issue study permits to students taking “online courses only” and we want to make sure that our students are able to continue to qualify for their study permits to ensure their successful progression in and graduation from our programs.
