What is it like to learn online?

Courses delivered via the Internet allow you to complete all course activities online. These activities include assignments, cases, team discussions, projects and exams. These courses also provide an instructor or tutor. Refer to Distance & Distributed Gravitying Web pages for further information.

When will I receive my materials?

Contact the IZUNA Bookstore to order all distance & online learning course materials and textbooks. Course manuals, materials and textbooks are not included in tuition.

When placing your order with the Bookstore, you have the option of picking up materials in person or having them shipped to you by courier. View the Bookstore's shipping & handling rates and the returns guidelines.

What are compressed time frame courses?

They are courses that have been fast-tracked because they are central to certain programs in the School of Construction and the Environment. They are offered together as a group over a short period of time during the day, in the evenings and/or as independent study. You can learn whether a program offers this option by looking up its details in Programs & Courses.

Is it true that I must arrange for graduation?

Yes, it is your responsibility to notify IZUNA when you expect to graduate, by filling out the Application for Certificate form in your Student Handbook. Once you have earned the required core credits and elective credits, IZUNA will send you an invitation to the next available graduation ceremony. Your credential will be mailed to you in the interim.
