*Currently, students will participate in in-person work-integrated learning at the employer host’s location. As the pandemic continues to evolve, this may change at the employer host’s request to a remote field placement. Should this change occur, students will be communicated with as soon as possible.

** For CTA & CTAP, as LSO accredited programs, in the event that the government were to remove restrictions on public gatherings and physical distancing, the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) will require a return to in-class instruction for accredited paralegal programs within 60 days. Until that time, all CTA and CTAP courses will be remote.

For those students who have a scheduled on-campus activity, like a class or lab, or for those with an in-person appointment with one of our student services or school offices – please visit the Coming to Campus tab before attending on-campus learning activities.

Can I print while on campus?

Yes, to print while on campus students must access the print portal Papercut and apply credits to manage print jobs.

Returning students should note that changes have been made to the print credits process and printing will now function on a “pay as you go” service for which you are responsible.

Any existing print credit balances from the 2019-2020 academic year will be brought forward and students will be able to purchase “print packs” to top up their cards as they wish.

It is recommended that credits be purchased no less than a day in advance to allow for the processing of updates.

The changes follow a reduction in ancillary fees paid by students. As printing charges are no longer included in these fees, this allows you full management of your printing. This means that the $23.00 print credits that were applied in the past on student cards at the start of the academic year will no longer occur. Ancillary fees will continue to cover other facets of technology services including your use of DC Connect, MyCampus and DCApps (a new portal allowing students to access many software titles in computer labs remotely). 

Students can purchase print credits online or in person at the Oshawa and Whitby Campus Bookstores. As well, you can print on any printer on campus without adding the printer to your laptop.

If you wish to verify your purchased print credits balance (when on campus or when connected via VPN), please visit the campus printing self-service portal. To log in to the portal use your network username and password, this portal provides many features including a view of your print history, and view the print rates for a variety of printers (colour, black and white, double sided etc.) and other print details.

Print rates:

  • Black and white prints - 3 cents per page
  • Coloured prints - 30 cents per page
  • Duplex printing - 2 cents per page (B&W), 10% discount per page (colour)
What ID do I need to show to access campus buildings?

Before entering any Durham College building an automated email confirmation indicating, You may go to campus, from the  COVID-19 Pre-entry Screening Questionnaire must be shown to Campus Security personnel. This confirmation is valid until 11:59 p.m. on the date you complete the questionnaire.

When entering Oshawa campus buildings, students are required to show:

ID is not required to enter the Whitby campus.

HOW DO I GET A CAMPUS ID?

Oshawa campus students who are required to be on campus must show proof of a course schedule (either through the Durham College Mobile app or a printed copy of their course schedule from MyCampus) to gain access to the Oshawa campus. ID is not required to enter the Whitby campus.

Do I have to leave campus after my class is done?
To reduce the amount of people on campus, students are encouraged to go home or leave campus buildings after their class. If you have a break between classes and are not able to go home or are not able to use one of our outdoor spaces or picnic tables due to inclement weather conditions, you are permitted to remain on campus in one of our open student spaces. For a full list of what is open on campus, please visit our Spring Semester tab on the COVID-19 webpage.
Academics

What academic supports are available to students?

In addition to the support faculty members provide in the academic setting, Student Advisors are also ready and available to help you access the resources you need.

WILL MY EDUCATION BE THE SAME OR “AS GOOD” AS FACE-TO-FACE DELIVERY?

Remote delivery at DC provides students with a high-quality academic experience in a rich and supportive learning environment that will help them learn the vocational and durable skills employers are looking for.

Our exceptional faculty are committed to supporting students remotely, enabling them to achieve their goals while providing an interactive and student-centric experience. By leveraging a variety of tools, students will receive a quality education at DC.

We have tools and supports in place to ensure that remote delivery meets our quality standards.

How will my lab/studio/shop class be taught?

Some programs will be delivered remotely and in-person. Students in programs with lab/shop/studio in-person delivery requirements will be scheduled for classes on campus.

Theoretical content will be delivered remotely, and in-person activities will be delivered on campus, following all directives from public health and safety.

How will my field placement/practicum/co-op be handled this semester?

Learning outcomes that are addressed by experiential learning opportunities may be achieved through alternate forms of learning, which may include a capstone or remote placements. 

Some field placements/practicums/co-ops will proceed as planned, either in person or remotely. Where an experiential learning program component is suspended, the college will ensure that students have the opportunity to achieve the required learning outcomes. 

Can I defer my admission to January and hold my spot?

Contact the Office of the Registrar for information regarding admissions.

What does remote course delivery mean?

Remote courses offer an interactive and engaging student-centric experience. Courses are led by faculty who are committed to supporting students, enabling them to achieve their goals and be successful. All student-faculty and student-student interactions occur remotely, online.

Faculty will post course-related learning materials, assignments, resources, etc. in DC Connect, the college’s learning management system. Faculty and students will interact using various technologies that may include Microsoft Teams, DC Connect’s virtual classroom and Office 365.

Courses will be delivered synchronously, asynchronously or using a blend of the two approaches.

What is the difference between synchronous and asynchronous course delivery?
  • Synchronous – courses will have scheduled meeting, or class, times in a virtual classroom, using Microsoft Teams or DC Connect’s virtual classroom.
  • Asynchronous – where learning takes place at times and locations of the student’s own choosing through online communications technologies. Instruction may occur through interactive discussion posts, content sharing, video recordings, etc. 

Courses may also blend the two delivery approaches, combining elements of non-scheduled and scheduled activity.

What technology will I need if my program is delivered remotely?

It is recommended that students have access to a computer (desktop or laptop) and have internet access. Recommended specifications will be posted to each program page on the college’s website in the coming weeks.  

Students in laptop programs should review technical requirements for their programs. Information is available on the program page on the college’s website. 

Fees and tuition
HAVE ANCILLARY FEES BEEN REDUCED FOR THIS SEMESTER?

Yes, spring ancillary fees have been reviewed and adjusted to reflect remote delivery. Students can expect a savings of $189.34 for the spring semester.

WHY DO WE NEED TO PAY ANY ANCILLARY FEES?

Some ancillary fees are used to support the college’s infrastructure that are non-tuition-related expenses and are subject to approval through a framework that involves both Durham College and the independent student union, Durham College Student Inc. (DCSI).

Any increases or new ancillary fees are voted on by a committee and in some cases by a referendum to support the college's investment in facilities that students value like the Campus Recreation Centre and Student Centre. While we understand that there may be limited access to campus this coming fall, we can assure you that most of our services will be offered remotely. Adjustments made to the fall ancillary fees have been carefully reviewed by both DC and DCSI to ensure that students are paying for services that they will receive in this upcoming semester and into the future.

Will we receive a UPass for use on Durham Region Transit (DRT) this winter?

Students registered in the spring semester will not be charged for the UPass in their ancillary fees thiswinter. If using DRT public transit, you will be required to pay the applicable rates when entering the bus.

If you have any questions, please contact oes@durhamcollege.ca.

What health and safety protocols are in place on campus?
  • To further ensure the health and safety of our campus community, effective Thursday, October 22, all those visiting Durham College campuses, including employees, students and visitors, must complete a brief (less than one minute) COVID-19 screening questionnaire. The Government of Ontario has mandated this screening process for all post-secondary institutions in compliance with the Chief Medical Officer’s recommendation.
  • Plexiglass partitions have been installed in frontline service areas where possible.
  • Anyone accessing a campus building is required to wear a mask or face covering when inside and must sanitize, practice physical distancing and self-screen upon entry.
    • A mask should fit securely, cover the nose and mouth, be made of at least two layers of tightly woven fabric such as cotton or linen and not have exhalation valves.
    • If replacing current two-layer masks, it is advised that three-layer masks with woven cloth inside and outside and a non-woven, fibrous layer in between be considered.
    • A face shield is not an acceptable replacement for a mask or facial covering.
  • Departments or offices that are student-facing are required to limit capacity to ensure proper physical distancing guidelines are followed.
  • Many employees are still being encouraged to work from home and many programs are being delivered fully or semi-remotely to limit the number of people on campus.
