Frequently Asked Questions




ACADEMIC



What can I expect for winter 2021 programming?
Similar to the fall 2020 semester, academic delivery will be a combination of remote and face-to-face learning. Practical learning requiring access to specialized learning spaces and/or equipment will take place in a face-to-face format.

PLEASE NOTE: ANYONE REQUIRING ACCESS TO THE SAULT COLLEGE CAMPUS IN SSM IS REQUIRED TO COMPLETE COLLEGE REOPENING PROCEDURES TRAINING HERE: https://welearn.saultcollege.ca/d2l/home

In the Toronto and Brampton Campuses, the remote delivery model will be used for all programs in the winter 2021 semester.

Students must complete the COIVD-19 return to campus training session in Brightspace, which can be accessed with student login information here: https://gateway.trios.com/sault-student/index.html. Student login information will be provided to students at least one week before classes.


What is remote delivery?
Through our remote delivery model, you can expect your faculty to be available to you in real time during the regularly scheduled class times as per the program timetable. This will be accomplished with either a planned classroom online session or with a dedicated opportunity for students to interact with faculty for that course. To support this remote learning, faculty will use College-supported web conferencing platforms for the regularly scheduled class time as well as our learning management system.


I am concerned about some or all of my program being offered remotely. Won’t this change the quality of the education?
We understand your concerns. While the delivery method of your program may change, our programs continue to be held to the same quality standards and the curriculum and learning outcomes remain consistent with our commitment to you.

However, given our cost structure for providing ancillary services, if we need to eliminate services in a semester we will only grant a refund if (in our exclusive discretion) it is warranted. Students studying in programs that are remote delivery only will have be exempt from designated ancillary fees as outlined here.


What technology and software will I need to attend classes remotely?
Students are required to have their own computer/laptop and an internet connection that enables remote learning at Sault College. The minimum recommended device and internet standards are posted on this page, see the Technology Standards section above, and on the student portal.
