Current Postsecondary Students

Students currently enrolled in a postsecondary program at Cambrian College may take this micro-credential concurrently with their diploma or advanced diploma program.

Whenever there is a General Education course within their program, students seeking the micro-credential should elect to take one of the four Health and Wellness courses. Since each program requires three General Education courses, students must enroll in one additional course (with applicable tuition and other fees), whether as an overload or through an off-stream term. Students will apply to graduate from the micro-credential upon completion.

For further information, please contact your program coordinator or Bradie Granger, the Chair of General Studies.
