    I will note that the best instructors on JCSP (DL) were the contracted academics, and not the faculty on staff.

    As I recall, three courses plus a paper, each of which you must pay for.

    Arbour Report - Recommendation #29: Future of Military Colleges

    Para 5 paraphrased says that the DL students can take their credits elsewhere to get a Masters, or do additional coursework compared to the residency students. Those additional credits are at the expense of the student - not only must you work full time for two years while doing the program...

    Medical travel reimbursement

    Justin Trudeau hints at boosting Canada’s military spending
