Many students complete the two-year diploma program and continue on to other college and university programs with advanced standing if they meet the grade point average and admission requirements for those programs. Our curriculum helps students to develop the academic background, skills and discipline required to succeed in those programs.
Many others prefer to enter the world of work directly from the program. An education in the liberal arts and sciences is valued in many workplaces. Our program helps students to develop the advanced communication and critical thinking skills required in the world of work, particularly for careers that encourage on-the-job professional development.

Students can transfer credits earned in the R101 program and use them towards a university degree.
