Course Information

In Fall 2017, the English Language Learning and Acquisition (ELLA) Department launched a new curriculum to help students learn and develop the language skills that they need to succeed in their university studies.

This new curriculum is called Academic College English (ACE) and will improve students’ ability to participate in university-level conversations, understand academic texts and discussion, and write effectively in a college environment.

The ACE program consists of three levels. Each level focuses on a specific theme and contains four courses:

The ACE program was developed to give students more time and opportunities to practice English in real-life situations and more flexibility to choose their courses.

Effective January 1st 2020, the total cost of MSP will go up to $75 per month, per student.

Douglas Students' Union Health & Dental Plan

This extended coverage plan covers things that are not covered by the MSP, such as ambulance fee, vision care, dental care and prescription drugs. Full-time students registered in a Fall semester are automatically enrolled in the Student Health and Dental plan for $260 per year, charged as part of the tuition fees. The insurance period begins on September 1 and ends on August 31 of the following year.
