A:Here is the Admissions Page to the Continuing Studies Department (under which Distance Learning fall). It should help you out. http://www.rmc.ca/academic/continuing/calendar/admrega_e.html I'm working, when I can , on my Bach of Military Arts & Science through RMC. Good system with reasonable costs (1/2 compared to U of Manitoba who also credits mil trg), OPDP (or OPME as they are now called) are mostly credit courses except for the first two, some of the mil trg is credited and they allow for exercises, deployments, etc... On the minus, they are a small organisation (Distance Learning) and therefore take a long time to return homework, exam results, etc ... Overall I'm happy with my studies there, even if sometimes I feel like distance learning is not sometime RMC wanted to do, and would recommend it to anyone that wants to study those few diplomas they offer. Specifically, its a good thing for serving personnel since they understand our way of life and will make great accomodation for deployments and now the OPME are university credit courses. Hi J.. Perhaps my experience (admittedly old) down this road might be of some value to you or others in this NG. I started with an OPDP credit followed by a correspondence course from U of Manitoba. Transferred to Kingston and took a credit in full time RMC class as an NCM. At this point it looked like a good idea if I could take the remaining credits at Queens U and then transfer the lot back to U of Man. for a degree under the Can Force program. Unfortunately U of Man couldn't give me approval for a Queens course in time for me to get on the course. My options as I saw it were complete my degree with U of Man correspondence or transfer what I had to Queens and loose my military credits. I was going to retire to Kingston so I chose the Queens route, loved my time at Queens, and got a history degree. If I had a career ahead of me I would have probably been better off going the correspondence route and been able to keep all my credits for military OPDP and trade. I might add Queens won't recognize military credits for post grad work.
