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. If you already have post-secondary credentials, you may qualify for advanced standing in eligible programs. This means you would be able to complete a program in a shorter time period.
  2. A college program delivered in a continuous 12-month format without extended vacation breaks and sometimes with increased classroom hours per week.

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.
