Distance learning colleges in Canada typically give students between two to three years to finish a diploma program. Extensions depend entirely on the college.
For open learning degrees, a student is able to finish a credit course in as little as three months. Degree completion depends on how many courses a student is enrolled in and what prior learning has been recognized toward the degree. Distance universities often give students five to seven years to complete a degree. Many distance degree students finish their education much faster due to year round enrollment.
