The Department of Continuous Learning provides educational opportunities for students in alternative formats. Students wishing to take courses from the Department of Continuous Learning should contact the Department for help with the admissions and registration processes.
Continuous Learning co-ordinates Mount Allion's contribution to the Co-operative University Program on the Miramichi. This program, offered in partnership with St. Thomas University and the University of New Brunswick, provides a first year university program in Arts and Commerce to students on the Miramichi. This enables Miramichi students to complete their first year of university studies at home. A very limited number of second and third year courses are also offered in this program.
Continuous Learning offers evening courses in Moncton. The Moncton program enables students to complete many of their first year courses in their home community. A limited number of upper level courses are also offered based on demand.
The Correspondence program is offered during the Fall, Winter and Spring/Summer terms. It allows students to acquire credits toward a degree in a flexible, self-paced manner. During the Fall and Winter terms, students are given sixteen weeks to complete three credit courses and thirty-two weeks to complete six credit courses. During the Spring/Summer term they must complete these courses within sixteen weeks. While most students register for these courses in September, January or April, part-time students may sign up for courses at any time during the year. Full-time students registering for Correspondence courses must follow registration and withdrawal deadlines as outlined in Section 10.2 of the Academic Regulations.
Spring courses are offered during the period of May-June, on the Sackville campus as well as in other locations (e.g. Moncton). Spring term six credit courses run four days or evenings a week, for seven weeks; three credit courses run two days or evenings a week during this period. Summer courses may be offered during the months of July and August. Students may register for a maximum of 12 credits, including a maximum of 6 credits from correspondence courses, offered through Continuous Learning during the Spring/Summer term. Students must be in Good Standing to register for correspondence courses (see Academic Regulation 10.12.2).
Non-credit courses, seminars and workshops may be organized during the academic year and in the summer on a wide variety of topics. Such courses are usually offered on the Sackville campus but may be given in nearby communities upon request.
Fees for all credit courses are based on full-time tuition fees and change as those fees change. For non-credit courses, seminars, and workshops, fees vary according to the length and type of program being offered.
Several forms of financial aid are currently available to full and part-time students. Full-time students are eligible for all university scholarships and financial aid. Aid for part-time students includes the Scoudouc Awards and Part-time Student Loans. Scoudouc Awards, donated by Dr. William Webster, are available to New Brunswick residents only and range in value from $100 to $300 per course. Full and Part-time student loans are interest-bearing loans guaranteed by the Government of Canada, and may be used for tuition, books, transportation, day care and incidentals. The university also administers a bursary program for which part-time students may be eligible.
During the Fall and Winter terms, full-time students registered at the Sackville campus are permitted to take up to six credits through Continuous Learning as part of a normal course load. These courses MUST be completed by the end of the academic term in which they were started. Full-time students registering for courses through Continuous Learning must follow registration and withdrawal deadlines as outlined in section 10.2 of the Academic Regulations.
During the Fall and Winter terms, full-time students registered at the Sackville campus may only register for courses offered through Continuous Learning in accordance with Academic Regulation 10.1.5 (Normal Course Loads and Overloads).
Full-time students registering for correspondence courses through Continuous Learning must follow registration and withdrawal deadlines as outlined in section 10.2 of the Academic Regulations. They MUST complete these courses by the end of the academic term in which they were started. Part-time students taking correspondence courses must complete a three credit course within sixteen weeks of the start date and must complete a six credit course within thirty-two weeks of the start date. Extensions to these deadlines can be granted by an Academic Dean. If an extension is granted, an extension fee will apply.
Full-time students registering for correspondence courses must follow registration and withdrawal deadlines as outlined in section 10.2 of the Academic Regulations. Part-time students registered in a three or six credit correspondence course may withdraw without academic penalty provided that:
Students wishing to withdraw from a correspondence course must notify the Registrar's Office in writing.
Students registered for non-correspondence courses during Spring/Summer term may withdraw without academic penalty before the end of the fourth week of classes. Students wishing to withdraw from these courses must notify the Registrar's Office in writing. Please see section 4.5.3 for financial information.
