Online Courses

Students registered for a course designated "Online" do not meet for a face-to-face class; however, they may need to be on campus once or twice a semester for in-person exams or an orientation. Online courses are distinguished by a section number starting with an "A" followed by the section number (eg. A denotes Online and 75 denotes section number).

Online and Partially Online Learning courses - (online activities with class instruction) sections are delivered via the web and can be accessed by any computer with an Internet connection and graphical web browser. Kwantlen's online course tool works best with version 5+ web browsers. Students wishing to participate from off-campus should arrange for Internet access prior to the start of classes. Students are required to log onto their online courses or contact their instructor within the first week of classes. Students log in by using their Student ID Number as their username and PIN as their password. After registration begins, students may consult the course homepage for further details about the course.
