The 7-1-7 Programming Model

Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic school year, the School of Computer Studies is launching a new program model at the Sarnia campus. 

This model is based on seven weeks of classes, a one-week break and then another seven weeks of classes (7-1-7). There is no specific exam week in this model but exams may be held in the last week of classes.

During the spring and summer terms, classes will be offered in a compressed format. This means that students will take a set of classes in the first seven weeks (Spring - Session I) and a second set of classes in the next seven weeks (Spring - Session II). 

Breaks should be:

  • Fall Break - October 22 - October 26
  • Winter Break - February 25 - March 1
  • Spring/Summer Break - June 24 - June 28
