FAQ about Online Learning
Laureate provides full-time online programs (OSSD & EAP), part-time online credit courses, and the IELTS Preparation Program at Laureate. You’ll be registered as a full-time Laureate student if you are enrolled in our full-time online program. If you registered as a part-time student and are currently enrolled in the OSSD program, upon successful completion of the credit course, you will receive a final report card issued by Laureate College to add to your total achieved credits. Other part-time online credit course students will be registered as Laureate part-time students and have their OSR and OEN established with Laureate College
Taking a full-time online program is just like taking a full-time classroom program. You’ll be registered full-time and assigned the Ontario Student Number (OEN) and Ontario Student Record (OSR) with Laureate.
