Registration and administration

Following are highlights of registration and administration procedures CE Health Sciences students need to be aware of. A full list of administrative and academic policies and procedures that apply to Continuing Education Health Sciences courses and programs is available in the Student Handbook.

Registration

Courses normally start on the first working day of the month; course start dates and associated course registration numbers (CRN) are listed on course webpages. The registration process for each course is specified on the course web page:

  • registration in some courses is completed by contacting Continuing Education Registration directly at 604-527-5472, quoting the CRN and course start date listed on the course web page; while
  • other courses require that students submit proof of completion of pre-requisite requirements, so will be required to submit a registration form along with their documentation. Completing the registration form requires specifying the course, CRN and start date listed on the course web page.

To allow sufficient processing time, the registration deadline is five (5) business days prior to the course start date.  Please note that the same deadlines apply to courses that require submission of a registration form and proof of completion of specified prerequisites.

When the registration process is complete, you will receive a “Confirmation of Registration” email from the Office of the Registrar.  This also serves in one, as your receipt of payment for the course.  Course details, including specific start and end dates, and directions on getting started and accessing course materials, will be emailed to you by the Program Assistant between the registration deadline and the course start date.

Extensions

In the event that a student is unable to complete the course by the end date, they may be eligible for a course extension.

If you require an extension, please do the following:

  1. Contact your instructor to confirm if an extension is sufficient or beneficial given the amount of coursework to be completed
  2. Contact the Program Assistant responsible for your course by phone or email for available extension options

Extension requests must be received by the Program Assistant no later than five (5) business days before the assigned course end date, accompanied by payment of the extension fee. Extension requests received after the assigned course end date cannot be processed.

One extension is permitted per course.

Examinations

Course examination(s) are administered online using Respondus Lockdown & Monitor.  In order to utilize these platforms on your laptop and desktop computer, access to a webcam is required.

The completed Exam Confirmation form (provided with welcome information at course start), must be sent to the Program Assistant following the directions at the bottom of the form, only after confirming with the course instructor:  date, time, and time-zone of the requested exam.  The form must be received in the Continuing Education office no later than two (2) business days before the requested exam date.  Please note that forms received late may not be processed.  If the course has more than one exam, students must submit one Exam Confirmation form for each exam.

On the exam day, it is essential that students are able to sign in to their Blackboard course in order to be able to access the exam.  They must ensure that they have photo ID to present.  The details on how to navigate Respondus Monitor & Lockdown, including the link to access them, are provided in response when the Exam Confirmation form is sent to the Program Assistant.

Withdrawals

Requests for withdrawal must be received at least three business days prior to the course start. No refunds will be given after that date.
