ON-CAMPUS VS. OFF-SITE – WHICH OPTION IS BEST FOR YOU?
Durham College understands that some students will appreciate the benefit and flexibility of online learning. We’re pleased to offer you the option to study online at home, or use on-campus quiet study space. Online students are responsible to arrange their own access to a computer and reliable internet during their studies. In addition, desktop computers and internet are available at the Oshawa and Whitby campus in the Computer Commons. A student may also choose to bring a personal computer and access a quiet study space and free Wi-Fi at the Oshawa or Whitby campus.
- Provides the opportunity to study from the comfort of your own computer or using Oshawa campus’ quiet study space.
- Three semester start dates: September, January or May.
- Online learners can access their courses and technical support 24 hours a day/seven days a week. Off-site learners are responsible for software/hardware requirements.
- Ask us about the student health insurance option for full-time Second Career students. Included in this package is health insurance coverage, a Universal Transit Pass (U-Pass) and access to on-campus facilities including the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre (CRWC).*
