Residency

Full-time students complete their residency requirement as they are in residence for the duration of the program. 

Part-time students are required to complete four residency periods: 

  • Doctoral Seminar I
  • Doctoral Seminar II
  • Two consecutive term periods of full-time study at their Home University.
    • It is recommended this be completed after the comprehensive portfolio and dissertation proposal are completed so the student can complete doctoral research

Part-time students must apply to complete their two terms in residency no later than January 31st in the academic year prior to the year in which the intended residency will take place. For example, for a residency period during the 2017-2018 academic year, the student must apply by January 31st 2017 to be in residence. Planned residency periods must be included in the Plan of Study Form as well as in the Annual Progress Report Form.
