Fax: (403) 932-7049


Please note, international students are not eligible for the following enrolment options.

Occasional Students

An occasional student takes courses for credit without being fully admitted into one of our degree programs. All courses taken by an occasional student are fully transferable into a degree program, though they do not guarantee admission into the college or seminary.

An individual wishing to take college or seminary courses as an occasional student must have a high school diploma or its equivalent to apply for undergraduate courses, or hold a completed bachelor’s degree to be considered for graduate courses. The prospective student must complete the Occasional Student Application Form and submit the application fee.

Occasional students are limited to two courses per semester and can take up to a maximum of 15 total credit hours. Those who wish to continue studies beyond this limit must enroll in a program of study. Payment of student fees gives occasional students access to the library along with other student benefits. 

Please note that occasional students cannot apply for reduced housing rates on campus or student scholarships and tuition benefits.

For more information or to apply, please contact the Registrar, Tamara Mitton, at

Audit Students

An audit student sits in on undergraduate or graduate courses purely for the purpose of benefitting from the course content, rather than taking a course for credit. Audit students do not take tests or examinations or write papers for evaluation by the instructor. They are encouraged to complete reading assignments but they do not participate in class discussions or ask questions.

An individual wishing to audit a course must meet the educational requirements for the respective course being audited (a high school diploma or its equivalent for an undergraduate course, or a completed bachelor’s degree for a graduate course). The prospective audit student must complete the Audit Student Application Form and must pay the audit library fee to use the library. Audit students can audit up to two courses per semester.

For more information or to apply, please contact the Registrar, Tamara Mitton, at

Dual Enrolment

The Dual Enrolment Program at CBTS&C is offered to grade 11 and grade 12 students. Grade 11 students are permitted to enroll in one 3 credit-hour course per semester, and grade 12 students are permitted to enroll in up to two 3 credit-hour course per semester. Thus, upon completion of college courses students may receive both high school and college credits.


Applying students must:

  • Show proof of completion of grade 10
  • Be at least 16 years of age.

Interested students should contact the Registrar for an application form and to inquire about upcoming courses being offered in the Dual Enrolment Program. Please note it is the responsibility of the student to determine whether another college or university will accept these transfer credits if there are plans to continue studying at another school in the future.
