Non-Credit Courses

Non-credit courses are an excellent way to build your professional skills or explore an interest. These courses and programs require no application and are easily accessible. Simply register and attend class. Non-credit courses do not apply towards university credit or undergraduate degrees.

In some cases, non-credit courses can be applied towards education units or designation requirements. Check the course details for more information.

Some post-degree and french immersion credit courses can be taken for non-credit. If you would like to earn credit or complete the diploma you must apply for admission. Contact us for more information.


Credit Courses

Our credit courses allow you to earn academic credit that is applied toward a diploma program or degree. To enrol in a diploma credit course, students must apply and be accepted to both Western University and the program.

We recommend checking with your intended degree program before registering for a credit course to make sure your credits will apply.


Credit Courses for Non-Credit

Our Diploma in Clinical Trials Management, Human Resources and Occupational Health and Safety Management credit courses may be taken as non-credit for general interest, upgrading skills, employment, and/or professional development.

You can take up to five courses (2.5 credits) as a non-credit student. If you wish to take more than five course, you will be asked to apply to the diploma program.

Diploma courses previously completed as non-credit can be applied toward diploma program progression. A $120 evaluation fee will apply to students requesting credit for courses completed prior to admission to the diploma.



Time commitment varies between courses and programs. Typically, students can expect to spend an additional 3-6 hours per week, outside of regular class time on homework, assignment and textbook readings. Check the course details for more information.
