Welcome Master's and Graduate Certificate Learners

New and returning learners are encouraged to visit ROLS, the Learner Support website in Connect  which includes the learner orientation, updates on e-library access and important announcements from administration. You can also download the most recent version of the learner guide here which is updated every August and December. 

Access to the December New Learner Orientation is open from Monday, December 5, 2016 to Friday, December 16, 2016. It takes approximately 2-4 hours to complete and can be done anytime over the scheduled period.


You will notice on the right of the CONNECT login page that there are links to other helpful information. Take special note of the link for Site Requirements. Use these to ensure that your computer has the necessary software to support courses run in CONNECT. Please also enable pop-ups in your browser software.
