Why take courses through open studies?
Taking courses through open studies allows you to take up to five courses without applying for a program of study at Vanguard College. You can take courses online or on-campus. Whether you desire to study for personal or professional development, need to take courses for credentialing, want to get a head start on a degree, or just want to take a course of interest - this is a great place to start!
You can take up to two courses at once.
Mature students that do not have a high school diploma can take open studies courses to help meet entrance requirements.
Please note that if you are taking an Open Studies course online, you will need to complete the Orientation to Online Learning course with a grade of 80% first before beginning class. The Orientation course is not covered by student loans. As part of the Spring Discounted Class promotion, the Orientation to Online Learning Course is being temporarily waived.
Contact Enrolment Services if you have any questions.
