Fast‑Track and Bridging Programs

Do you already have a diploma or a degree in a related field?

You may be able to apply your existing post-secondary credentials towards a program at George Brown through advanced standing in our fast-track and bridging programs.

Fast-Track Programs

Fast-track programs present a unique opportunity to complete diploma requirements in fewer semesters. There are two ways in which a program may be considered a fast-track:

  1. Modified delivery of a college program which enables students to complete the program in a shorter time period through advanced standing by recognizing previously achieved credits or credentials.
  2. A college program delivered in a continuous 12-month format without extended vacation breaks and sometimes with increased classroom hours per week.

If you qualify for a fast-track program, you can gain a new credential quicker as the program is specially tailored to complement previous study. Our fast-track programs offer an expedited way to gain a new diploma or degree in just 1-2 years.

Bridging Programs

If you have already earned a post-secondary diploma in a related discipline, you may be eligible for one of our Advanced Standing bridging programs into one of our Honours Bachelor degree programs.

A Bridging program is a formal partnership within a college, or between two post-secondary institutions that allows students to apply previous credits towards the completion of a degree program in a similar field of study.
