Part-time in the Faculty is defined by a student’s work load per semester and does not mean evening studies.  While some Level I courses are offered in the evening, the majority of the courses at Levels II and III are taught during the day onlyThus, students registered part-time must be prepared to attend classes between 8am and 5pm. 

Students accepted with lower level matriculation into the Faculty as part-time students must complete a minimum of twenty-four (24) credits and 2 academic years before they are eligible to transfer to full-time.

Once a part-time student changes his/her enrolment status to full-time, he/she is required to maintain the rate of progress mandated for the full-time programme.  See 9.1 below.
