Can I take all of my courses at one location?
OsgoodePD aims to schedule at least one section of all core courses at each of our campus locations. Courses that are offered only once per year run at either OsgoodePD or Osgoode Hall. Students should expect to take some courses at each location during their program. For the most current information about times/dates and locations please see Course Schedules.
Can I Take a Course Overload?
Our standard course loads are 12 credits per term for full-time students and 6 credits per term for part-time students. We typically do not let students take an overload in their first term of the program. Overloads are approved, on a case by case basis, following completion of the first term, taking into consideration factors including academic performance and overall demand for course space. You are only required to complete a total of 36 credits in the program. There are options for students to take additional courses as a non-degree student.
