Program Description

Regional Stewardship's Open Studies program provides regional learners with access to a selection of Bow Valley College post-secondary credit courses without requiring admission or commitment to one of the College's post-secondary programs. The courses offered align with a number of programs at the College. See the course listings below.

If you apply later to a full time program at the College and are accepted, the courses you've taken in Open Studies may be applied towards the completion of your program. Open Studies courses are subject to the Academic Continuance and Graduation Policy.

Courses are delivered through a mixed course mode where learning activities take place through a blend of scheduled or non-scheduled in-class and online delivery methods. Learners ARE REQUIRED to participate in scheduled learning activities (scheduled exams may be required).

Priority will be given to regional residents within the Bow Valley College service region. Regional campuses in Airdrie, Strathmore, Cochrane, Okotoks, and High River provide service to those towns and their surrounding regions.
