UTS offers a limited number of courses through distance learning. Distance learning courses are designed for self-motivated adult learners whose mission or career responsibilities prevent them from taking courses on campus. Students may join a cohort that is working through the course assignments together on the Internet. Or they may study at their own pace, completing assignments and corresponding with the instructor via e-mail, fax or letter.
Matriculated students in a degree program may take up to 25 percent of their credits by distance learning.
Students may register for distance learning courses by coming to campus on Registration days, or by contacting the Registrar for registration materials. Tuition and fees must be paid in full before materials are sent out. Distance learning courses have a one-year time limit from the last day of registration for the term in which the student registers, or July 1 if in summer. At the end of this one-year period, the student may apply for a three-month extension (fee applied).
Students may change from a registered and paid distance-learning course to an on-campus course by paying a conversion fee.
