Part-Time Studies



Update: part-time classes for fall 2020 in the Transitional Vocational Program.

Dear TVP students and student supports,

We would like  to update you on what is happening with our part-time classes for this coming fall in the Transitional Vocational Program at Mount Royal University.

Unfortunately, because of COVID 19, we are unable to offer classes at the University this fall. The good news is that we will offer many of the same classes ,as well as a few new classes, through remote delivery. Remote delivery means that you will be able to take our classes on your computer at home or wherever you have internet access. Below is the list of courses we will be offering. You may also go to our website for further information.

Registration will open at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, July 13, at which point we will ask you to complete an online registration form. We will then contact you  to confirm your details and payment information. Because space is limited, we require payment for your course within one week of registration, otherwise we will cancel your registration.
