Part-time General Education electives

These courses are available for students working towards completing a Conestoga College diploma or certificate which requires General Education elective credits.

Students may need to take a General Education elective in part-time status if:

  • they are registered in a part-time program.
  • they need to retake an elective course due to unsuccessful completion in a past term.
  • they missed taking their elective in a past term.
  • the Course Add Deadline for full-time General Education elective options has passed.
  • they want to take an elective in advance of the designated level to lessen their future course load.

Please note: courses taken through part-time studies are subject to course fees. The fee is not included in full-time tuition.
