What is the difference between the Extended Program and the Two-Year Program?

The Extended Program and the Two-Year Program are the same in terms of degree requirements.The unique feature of our Extended Program is that you are able to extend the time it takes you to complete your degree requirements as you are permitted to take a reduced course-load during your first year. In your second and third years, when you are in field placement and registered for concurrent required practice courses, you will be enrolled at the School full time. The biggest practical difference between the Extended and Two-Year programs is how students are billed for tuition. As an Extended Program student, you will be billed per credit each term until you complete your degree requirements. Two-Year Program students, by contrast, are charged a flat-rate tuition.
