Do you want to explore your options for an academic program?

Take courses that will help you choose your eventual program of study or pick up courses to meet admission requirements. Open Studies gives students interested in a flexible learning structure the freedom to explore different courses and program options.

Expand your knowledge and work toward further education by completing Grade 12 equivalent courses to meet admission requirements for a chosen program. Or complete courses that may be transferable to a Mount Royal baccalaureate degree, applied degree or diploma program. 

High School Upgrading

Open Studies students can also take Academic Upgrading courses. These non-credit, high school equivalency courses can be taken at the same time as university-level credit courses.

30-Credit Limit

Open Studies students may take a maximum of 5 credit courses in a semester and complete no more than 30 credits (10 courses) before being required to choose a specific program of study. There is no limit to the number of non-credit academic upgrading courses.

We strongly encourage all new Open Studies students to attend a New Student Group Advising Session.
