Distributed Education

Combining modular courses offered throughout the year (including during January Intersession and Spring Session) with online courses, the Distributed Education model is a multiple method delivery system that employs:

  • Off-campus teaching and learning
  • On-campus schedule elasticity
  • Multiple delivery tools

Modular courses taken during the Intersession each January and in Spring Sessions fulfill the residency requirement while the online courses enable students to work from outside the campus in Edmonton.

Students who consider taking courses online must keep the following policies in mind:

  • Online course tuition rate will be the same as on-campus offerings.
  • Online courses will not be included in the calculation of the tuition cap.
  • Online courses will not be used to meet the residency requirement.
