How is part-time post-secondary learning different?

Navigate through the following common questions about part-time post-secondary learning and earning your Ontario College credential.

How long will it take me to finish a post-secondary program part-time?


Taking an Ontario College diploma on a full-time basis normally takes two years to complete, while an on Ontario College graduate certificate is normally completed in one year. Taking the program on a part-time basis will take longer to complete depending on how many courses and consecutive terms you choose to enroll.

Completing two courses per term will allow you to achieve a graduate certificate in three years and a diploma in six years. You can finish faster by taking three courses per term every term courses are offered, including the summer term. You will be able to register in one to three courses each term.
