Did you know?

If you were registered full-time since beginning your program, you will continue to be considered as full-time for the purposes of financial assistance for students, study bursaries or immigration purposes (student visa). This will still be the case if you have not finished after 6 sessions (master) or twelve sessions (doctorate) and apply for an extension of one or more sessions.

IMPORTANT: If, for a given session, you study part time for a master’s with thesis or a doctorate you will be considered a part-time student if you must register for less than 9 credits or “ACTIVIT” or “REDACT” towards the end of your program, or if you get an extension.
