College honour roll is calculated each semester by your school. All full-time students with a GPA of 4.0 or greater in a semester are considered on the honour roll.

Students who made the honour roll and maintained a semester academic grade average of 4.0 can verify their honour rolls status with their school office. Most schools post paper copies of the honour list in front of the school office or on MyCampus in the school tab under your school icon. Each school operates a bit differently but you can reach out to the school office should you want to verify your honour roll status or have any further questions or concerns.

Students on the Presidents honour roll have a 4.0 GPA during their entire program at the time of graduation. An additional certificate is added at graduation showing ‘with honours’.

Co-operative education (co-op) is a type of experiential learning that formally integrates academic studies with formal work experiences with approved employers. It is a mode of delivery and not a separate program. Students who successfully complete the co-op requirements will have the co-op work term(s) acknowledged on their academic transcripts. Co-op provides students with structured work experiences that promote career exploration, expand employer contacts and apply in-class teachings to real-work situations.

Co-op students’ alternate periods of work experience in career-related fields with times of academic study according to the following criteria:

  • Each work experience is approved by the college as a suitable learning environment.
  • The co-op student is engaged in productive work rather than merely observing.
  • The co-op student receives remuneration for the work performed.
  • The co-op student's progress on the job is monitored by the college.
  • The co-op student's performance on the job is supervised and assessed by the student's employer.
  • The time spent in periods of work experience must be at least 30 percent of the time spent in academic study and no more than 75 percent.

Co-op involves three partners: the employer, the student and the college. The success of the co-op partnership is dependent upon a mutual commitment from all parties and the partnership cannot be altered without the knowledge and consent of all parties.

Available programs are available by visiting https://durhamcollege.ca/programs/co-op.

The 360 insights Entrepreneurship Centre is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19 precautions, however both the FastStartDC program and the EnactusDC club are operating online and accepting new students every day!

Yes, for sure! Our dedicated team of Work Study students will support your marketing needs through video conferencing and screen sharing. We hope to return to the studio for in-person photography needs later this year, however at this time we have developed great resources to support students in producing photography from home!

Yes! Once you are signed up for FastStart, you will have access to FastStart’s mandatory starter module called IdeaEngine, which is on DC Connect, and accessible from anywhere, at any time. This year we are also offering  our New Skills Workshop Series and additional programs virtually to support any students who will not be on campus.

The Financial Aid and Awards Office administers various financial aid and awards programs to reward academic achievement and to provide financial assistance. The office is responsible for the administration of scholarships, bursaries and Work Study Programs. The office is also responsible for the administration of OSAP, government student aid from other Canadian provinces as well as federal/provincial scholarships and federal/provincial bursary programs. Our goal is to guide students so they may have the appropriate financial supports in place to successfully achieve their educational goals.

Financial Aid and Awards phone inquiries are currently suspended. Please send your question via email to the corresponding email address below. To avoid delays, all emails should be sent from your DCMail account and include your full name (first & last) as well as your student number.

The Financial Aid tab in MyCampus hosts information on all of our institutional aid programs, Work Study Programs as well as internal, external and government scholarship and bursary programs. You can also apply to most of these programs through the Financial Aid self-service found on this tab. We encourage you to check it out!

Appointments can be booked through MyVisit (https://myvisit.com/#!/home/) for existing students. All Financial Aid appointments will be conducted virtually online or via phone until further notice. Please do not come onto the campus for your appointment.

Students currently approved for the DCWorks program should contact their direct supervisors regarding work assignments. DC has committed to pay continuity for Work Study employees for regularly scheduled hours. Where Work Study students did not have regularly scheduled hours, your supervisor will continue to approve the average amount of weekly hours worked.  Students will be required to continue to submit hours through Web Time Entry for Managers to approve.

If this is your first time applying for OSAP funding, you will need to register for an OSAP Access Number (OAN); otherwise, use your existing OAN to log in. When you have successfully logged in to your account you will be brought to the “My Applications” page. From here, you will be able to start a new application or review an existing one. www.ontario.ca/OSAP

After you have completed and submitted your application, it will be reviewed for completeness and the amount you are eligible to receive will be calculated. You must monitor your application’s progress through your OSAP account. If certain information is missing or invalid your application may be put on hold.

The Master Student Financial Assistance Agreement (MSFAA), is a lifetime student loan agreement for full-time students. It is completed only once, usually at the beginning of your post-secondary studies. The agreement contains terms and conditions to accept before you receive your OSAP funding. It is also how the National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) receives your banking information so they can deposit your OSAP funding directly to your account.

The National Student Loans Service Centre (NSLSC) will send you an email when it's time for you to register for your online account and complete your online MSFAA. This is generally two to three business days from the date you submit your OSAP application. The email will have a link to the NSLSC website where you'll have to enter your MSFAA number. If this step is not completed your OSAP funding cannot be released. If you are a returning student and had an MSFAA in your previous year, you do not need to repeat this process.

To view detailed information about your funding, including the amount you can expect to receive, you must log in to your OSAP account and review your Funding Summary. This will tell you how much you are getting for the school year and when the funding is expected to be released.

The Financial Aid and Awards Office will attempt to automatically confirm your enrolment to OSAP, a few days before your funding release date for each term. If you have not submitted all required documents your OSAP will be placed on hold and your enrolment will not be confirmed. You should regularly check your OSAP account and your DC Mail account for messages regarding your OSAP application.

To ensure your OSAP is released as soon as possible the most important thing you can do is apply as early as possible. Make sure to monitor your application regularly and submit any outstanding documents as soon as possible. Finally, make certain that you are registered in the course that you specified on your OSAP application. If you are not registered by the beginning of the term, your OSAP funding will be delayed.

OSAP applications and disbursements will continue to be processed without any interruption.  OSAP funds cannot be released until the first day of classes and take approximately five-to-ten business days to be processed. Until further notice, any supporting documents you are required to submit for your OSAP application should be uploaded directly to your OSAP account.  Instructions on how to upload can be found on the OSAP website. ontario.ca/OSAP

Yes, during COVID-19 we are asking students to reach out to our staff via email or email indigenous@durhamcollege.ca. A variety of programs are still being offered virtually. The First Peoples Indigenous Centre is where you can embrace your First Nations, Metis or Inuit roots through Smudging, ceremony, crafts, and teachings. You can also book an appointment for a one on one visit with an Elder/Traditional Knowledge Keeper. Indigenous coaches offer support, information, community referrals and programming specific to Indigenous student’s needs.

Any student can self-identify as an Indigenous person if they believe they are related to or descended from the Indigenous peoples of Canada (First Nations, Métis or Inuit). Students may also identify using preferred terms that more accurately reflect their individual definition or perception of identity. We highly encourage all students to self-identify who meet these guidelines.

Although the First Peoples Indigenous Centre is not open at this time, staff continue to meet with students virtually and over the phone. To book an appointment or learn more about the First Peoples Indigenous Centre please email indigenous@durhamcollege.ca.

To print, while on campus, students must access the print portal Papercut, (campusprinting.dc-uoit.ca) 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 2020/21 academic year will be brought forward and can be used in the Fall semester 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 at  https://durham.bookware3000.ca/Catalogue/durham-college-online-catalogue/supplies/print-packs or in person at the Oshawa and Whitby Campus Stores. 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 at http://campusprinting.dc-uoit.ca. To login 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.

***Please note print credit balances from last academic year will carry over to the Fall semester due to the Pay-as-you-go print credit changes, the $23.00 print credits placed on cards September 1 will no longer be applied ***

To print while on campus, remember:

  • Printing on-campus will now function on a “pay as you go” service
  • Print credit balances from last academic year (2021/2022) will carry over to the winter and spring semester of 2021
  • You are responsible for purchasing print credits
  • Purchase credits no less than a day in advance to allow for the processing of updates
  • Print on any printer on campus without adding the printer to your laptop
  • View the print rates for a variety of printers (colour, black and white, double-sided etc.)

To ensure your success, IT Services (ITS) is available to help. To find out more about hours of operation visit https://durhamcollege.ca/information-regarding-novel-coronavirus/fall-semester

Remote access to Lab Software

AppsAnywhere

Students will now have access to most DC lab software through DCApps.

DCApps  isDCApps is a new web-based app hub, powered by AppsAnywhere, will allow you to run program-specific software using any Windows computer from anywhere.

The web-based tool – AppsAnywhere is displayed as an “App store-style” portal interface. When accessed, you will be able to run software in the labs, to which you are authorized, on your personal Windows computer.

Below are instructions to access DCApps (effective September 4, 2020):

  1. Log on to https://dcapps.durhamcollege.ca/ using your network ID and password on any Windows 10 enabled computer.
  2. Once your DCApps session has been automatically validated, you’ll have access to a variety of applications, based on your program of study. Note, the first time you launch DCApps on your computer, you may be asked to install the AppsAnywhere application.
  3. To launch an application, simply click on the icon.
  4. Once the application has been successfully installed, the application will launch automatically. Applications can easily be uninstalled at any time

Splashtop

ITS has also installed an approach to facilitate students' access to computers in specialized labs on campus with more powerful machines and complex software.

To facilitate this, a computer connectivity tool – Splashtop has been installed. Authorized students from specific courses will be given access and allowed to connect remotely from anywhere using their personal device(s). Students authorized to utilize this approach for their course(s) will be informed by their instructors and provided instructions during the start of classes.

To initiate the Splashtop install, students will receive an email welcoming them to the Splashtop product when they are added to the system. Installation starts when you click on a link in the email to: “Accept the invitation from your Administrator”.

When the install is complete your web browser will display a successful login notice.

The Splashtop Business App should now display all of the Splashtop remotely-accessible computers to which you have been granted access, organized by room.

Instructors will provide instructions to students approved for this access during classes (effective September 8, 2020).

VPN

The remote access to computers on campus requires students to be able to do this securely. ITS has therefore provisioned access using Virtual Private Network (VPN) for authorized students.

Students approved to connect using VPN will receive detailed instructions  during initial classes of the semester.

These detailed instructions will outline how to download, install and connect to the Global Protect Student VPN used by Durham College and Ontario Tech University. Details will include how to download and install the software, and how to connect to the VPN.

You will Download and Install the correct version of Global Protect for your device: Windows or Apple computer. Ensure you select the correct one for your device.

To initialize this install, authorized students will go to https://svpn.dc-ot.ca2. Sign in with your Network ID and password.

Students are then referred to the most appropriate service(s) to support their well-being. These may include counselling, wellness coaching or care through other campus supports, such as mental health nursing at DC’s Campus Health Centre.

Wait times for further appointments vary but can be short as they are booked based on a student’s level of safety and urgency.

Coaching is about helping students build resilience and succeed in achieving their goals; it is not counselling, therapy or academic advising. Coaching helps students learn more about themselves so that they can access their strengths to set goals and make decisions.

If you have been connected with a coach in the past, you can call 905.721.3037 to book an appointment virtually.

Coaching will not cost you any additional funds, just your time and effort. The more you put in, the more you will benefit.

The number of times you meet is based on your individual needs and goals. After your first meeting, you and your coach will determine the frequency of future meetings.

Your coach will help you identify your strengths. Coaches will also ask questions to help you explore your options so you can make informed decisions. You will have an opportunity to establish goals and create a success plan.

Yes. You will have access to all other services on campus and within the community. In fact, if another resource can better serve you, we encourage you to reach out and connect with them. There may also be a time when your coach recommends another service to you.
