Since 2009, Nipissing University has partnered with Ontario colleges to offer a unique program for graduates of these colleges: Algonquin, Centennial, Lambton St. Clair. Graduates of a 3-year advanced diploma in business can complete their Bachelor of Commerce degree at a fast-tracked pace while staying in their communities and taking some classes at the partner college campuses.

You will study through our online learning platform, Blackboard. You can choose to take a course delivered purely online, which will allow you the most flexibility to study on your own schedule or you can choose to take a course delivered SYNC (synchronous) online. This is a live streamed class, which is scheduled during the evening between 6-9pm between Monday-Friday. If you reside near one of our 4 college partners, Algonquin, Centennial, Lambton or St. Clair, you can choose to register for a course delivered on that campus. All scheduled classes run between 5pm-9pm, Monday to Friday.

Students in the College Partnership Program can complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Commerce (4-year) 120 credit degree in 16 months and the Bachelor of Commerce (3-year) 90 credit degree in 12 months. For part-time study options please check out our Bachelor of Commerce Program.
