14 REGISTER: 604-594-6100 DELTA COMMUNITY COLLEGE, 11590 – 83rd Avenue, North Delta Our new, well-equipped centre provides quality educational programs for adults: • Adult Foundations • High School Completion • Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada (LINC) High School Completion DELTA INDIVIDUALIZED ADULT LEARNING (DIAL) 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.
