1. How do I register?

a) Online using VISA or Mastercard look for the register button next to the course name on each program page.

b) By phone using VISA or MasterCard, call 416-675-5005

c) In person - at North campus or Lakeshore campus.  Check humber.ca/hours-operation  for hours of operation.

2. What are the admission requirements?

For most courses, a student must be 19 years of age or have a Grade 12 diploma.  Some courses require a diploma or degree.  Be sure to check the course description for any pre-requisite requirements.  As a general rule, grade 12 English reading and writing skills are required.  Please refer to the individual program details.

3. When do courses start?

Courses are offered in each semester; Fall (F), Winter (W), Spring (S). There are specific start and end dates.  Click on individual course numbers for dates, times and location. Students may register up to the first day of class, however, we suggest to register early (at least three weeks in advance) as many of the courses fill up quickly. 

Enrolment permitting, registration will be accepted up to the date of the first class (some exceptions apply).  Contact the Program Liaison for late registration.

4. What if a course is full? Is there a waiting list?

Waitlists are not always available.  Students can register up to the first day of class and can continue to check until the second scheduled class to find out if space has become available. To inquire about available enrolment, contact the Program Liaison.

5. How do the online programs work?

Most online courses are taught using Blackboard, and are designed specifically for students who are self directed learners and prefer a more flexible study schedule. As part of the learning, students will participate in online discussion groups with other students and the teacher. The teacher will provide you with feedback and individual assessment of assignments.  Online course requirements for each program may differ.  

What to expect
Each online course has an agenda or critical-path. Students are required to follow the critical-path to meet assignment, quiz and test deadlines. Students work at their own pace during the week and some courses require your participation in a weekly one hour live-chat session. The date and time of the live-chat usually falls on the same day of the week as the the course start date and usually ocurrs in the evening between 6:30pm - 9:30pm. The teacher will post the scheduled “chat” time on the first day of class. Students should also be prepared to spend an additional four to nine hours each week on readings and assignments.

6. Where do I purchase books and what are the costs?

Books, except where stated otherwise, can be ordered in person or online from the Humber College Bookstore.   Prices are listed. When ordering online select "Department": use appropriate letter code and select "Course": use appropriate number.  For example:  PEMA 201.   Please note:  for all ACMO courses, books are only available for purchase in-person at the bookstore with the presentation of a receipt for proof of registration in the course.
 

7. Can I take more than one course at a time?

Yes, you can take more than one course concurrently in a semester, if you are willing to devote the time and effort required.  If you are just enrolling for the first time, or are working full time, we suggest you only enroll in one course at a time.

8. Can I apply for OSAP or any other financial assistance for this program?

Most government or OSAP programs require the student to be enrolled in a full-time diploma or a degree program, and generally these financial assistance plans do not apply to non-funded continuing education programs. 

9. How do I get my grade?

Visit humber.ca/myhumber  for the secure site for students to confirm registration, check grades, obtain final grade reports, print T2202A tax receipt and update personal information. For access, input your “student number” and “password” is your birth date (4 digit year/2 digit month/2 digit day). New students, or students who cannot locate their Humber student number, call Customer Service and Registration Centre at 416 675-5005. Please ensure your mailing address and telephone number(s) are current by updating your record.

10. How do I obtain my certificate when I've finished all the program's courses?

Upon successful completion of your certificate criteria, please send an email to ceparttime@humber.ca.   Make sure to update your student record at www.humber.ca/myhumber with the correct version of your name as it is to appear on the certificate, along with your mailing address.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing and delivery by Canada Post.
