                                  The DIAL program provides adult students with the opportunity to progress through one of
                                  several BC Ministry of Education approved courses available while having access to teacher
                                  instruction and guidance in a supportive and friendly classroom atmosphere. Although
                                  most courses contain an online/computer-assisted component, the DIAL program differs
                                  from distributed learning ( Delta Access) in that classes are conducted onsite; students are
                                  expected to attend regularly; a teacher supports and assesses student progress and courses
                                  must be completed in one semester.

                                  Students who do not complete a course within the allotted time (one semester) will be
                                  considered to have “not successfully completed the course” and may re-register in the DIAL
                                  program the following semester and take the entire course again.

                                  Individuals progress at different rates and so some students may complete a course before
                                  the end of the semester. English 10 or English Foundations 6/7 is required to register for
                                  a DIAL course.
