INDIVIDUAL COURSE AND WORKSHOP PROGRAM
Students can take courses and workshops on an individual basis outside of the Certificate or Diploma Program. If students want to obtain a grade for individual courses or workshops, they must fill out a 'Request for Grading' form before the second class of a course or before the start date of a workshop. Only courses that are graded can be transferred over to a Certificate or Diploma program at a later date.
Please note that not more than 50% of the required hours for a Certificate or Diploma program can be 'Individual Courses and Workshops'. Students must be enrolled in a program to complete the remaining 50% of the required hours. IE:
- Of the 504 required hours for the Certificate of Visual Arts program, not more than 252 can be 'Individual Courses and Workshops' hours.
- Of the 1512 required hours for Diploma of Fine Arts program, not more than 756 can be 'Individual Courses and Workshops' hours.
Note: to be eligible for admission to the Vancouver Island School of Art all persons must have a high school diploma or Mature Student status (19 years or over).
The Vancouver Island School of Art is Accredited with the B.C. Private Training Institutions Branch.
