How Do Schools Look At Doing A Year Of Mostly Online Courses?

Recommended Posts

Need some insight from people who have applied before about whether there is a rule for the maximum number of online courses that can be taken per academic year/total degree. I am doing an extra 5th year of courses and just happened that the courses I was interested in were mostly offered online. I'm from UBC and will be doing 18/30 credits online. 


Thanks in advance!

It depends on the school. Most will accept courses taken online and factor them into your GPA calculation, but Ottawa doesn't. They require you to take a minimum of 4 classes per semester, but they don't count online courses. So if you don't have that, the whole year will not be counted. They also don't factor them into your GPA. I believe most other schools are fine with them, but definitely check each school's website to make sure!
