Part-time MIRHR Program

Part-time students fulfill the same degree requirements as full-time students but take fewer courses each year. Students register in the sessions in which they are completing course requirements and summer session enrolment is not required.

Part-time students take one half-course (or .50 FCE) in each of the Fall, Winter and Summer semesters for a maximum course load of three courses (1.5 FCE) per academic year. A student may opt to take two courses in the winter session if they will not be taking a summer course. In special circumstances, students may be permitted to enrol in a fourth course.

Prior to completing all courses, part-time students may “stop out” with permission of Graduate Coordinator for up to 12 months.  The time limit for completing degree is 6 years.
