Yukon-U has rolled out a plan for the delivery of its credit programs, ensuring there is a path in place for every learner.
The move comes in anticipation of the continuation of many of the current COVID-19 restrictions.
Each program is currently developing a detailed delivery plan. Registered students will receive an email with further details by the second week of June. Detailed plans for each program will be posted online at YukonU.ca by the end of June.
Janet Welch, Vice President of Academic and Student Services said in a statement, "I would like to reassure students that we will work with each one of you to ensure you're getting the support you require. We'll provide you with personal advising so that we can help you with a study plan that meets your specific circumstances."
Several programs will be delivered online. The amount of real-time delivery and/or flexible-time delivery will vary for each program. Some programs will also be delivered through a mix of online and face-to-face (f2f) classes. The face to face plans must first be approved by the Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health (CMOH).
And lastly, a number of programs will have delayed start dates and/or are planned for face to face delivery, pending approval by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. Students should check YukonU.ca/admissions for program information and schedule date
For students in programs with a delayed start, it is important they connect with an advisor as soon as possible to arrange academic preparation coursework. These students should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 867 668 8720. Students who have work placements as part of their program will be accommodated through a variety of means.
Dr. Karen Barnes, president and vice chancellor said in a statement, "Yukon University has the advantage of being more flexible in adjusting to these unusual circumstances. Our smaller class sizes allow us to consider more face-to face programming than might have been possible if we had been dealing with classes of 150 students or more."
For those interested in short professional, first aid and personal interest courses, a Continuing Studies guide will be released this summer. For more information go to Continuing Studies at YukonU.ca.
