Registration Information for Prospective Students

Not sure if you have the time to complete a JIBC Program? No problem! Many JIBC courses can be taken independently until you are ready to complete the requirements for a credentialed academic program.

JIBC’s Continuing Studies courses are tailored for working professionals and many can be completed in a few days rather than over an entire semester.

Obtaining Transfer Credit & Prior Learning Assessments

To help students attain their academic and employment goals, JIBC welcomes credit transfer from other post-secondary institutions and other organizations where course or program equivalencies have been established. JIBC works toward developing courses and programs that will be accepted by other post-secondary institutions and other organizations for credit transfer or course equivalency. For more information, visit the Transfer Credit webpage.

JIBC is committed to meeting the career development and learning needs of its unique and diverse student population. The Institute recognizes that valuable learning often results from work experience or learning outside of the traditional post-secondary system and that valid and reliable prior learning assessment and qualifications recognition can benefit students. JIBC students can apply to obtain Prior Learning Assessment credits that can be applied towards completion of a JIBC Program. For details, visit the Prior Learning Assessment webpage.
