Frequently Asked Questions - Completing the Courses/Lessons
Can I write my exam at home or on-line?
All exams must be written in one of our offices. Exams are by appointment only. All students must show government photo ID prior to writing their exams.
Do I have to do the Support questions? 
Support questions are for practice only and will not be marked. It is suggested that you do these questions, as exams may include material from these questions. In most cases, the answers to the support questions can be found at the end of the unit or booklet. 
Do I have to do the Unit Key questions? 
Unit Key questions are for practice only. Not all courses have unit key questions and they are not for evaluation. 
How do I submit my lessons by email? 
For instructions on e-Submission refer to your information sheet or the e-Submission information tab on this website page.
I am not comfortable with the e-Delivery – how can I get a book?
You may switch to a paper booklet at any time. Just visit one of our offices and bring the $100 refundable deposit – we will switch you to traditional delivery. 
I am not registered in e-Delivery – can I still submit my lessons by email? 
e-Submission or submitting lessons via email is open to all Learn@Home students. Refer to your information sheet or the instruction page on our website for details on e-Submission. 
I have lost my instruction sheet – where can I get another one? 
You may obtain one from our office or click here to download a copy. 
I require some accommodations or modifications for my learning – how would I access these in Learn@Home?
If you have special needs for learning, please submit documentation to our office for review by the department head. This documentation may be an IEP from high school, a psych-ed assessment or other medical documentation that details what accommodations/modifications may be needed. If you wish us to discuss details with anyone other than yourself, we must have written consent from you prior to contact. 
I would like to change my course – what do I do? 
All course changes require an appointment. If you are changing a course, please remember that you will keep the original start date from the course that you first registered for. 
My four (4) months is almost up and I am not finished the course – what do I do? 
If you have completed at least half of the course and written the mid-term exam, you may be eligible for an extension. Otherwise, you may re-register for the course and obtain another four (4) months. Contact us to request an extension.
One of the websites listed in the course doesn’t work anymore – what do I do?
Although we attempt to keep current, sometimes websites are changed or cancelled. If you experience a ‘dead link’, use a reliable search engine to find similar content. Explain in your lesson submission that you used a different link and make sure you give the web address to the marker (so they can look at what you used). Also, please email us at LAH.Inquiry@ddsb.ca and let us know about the dead link. 
The information in the front of the booklet says that I only have one exam – is that true? 
No – all of our 1.0 credit courses have two (2) exams – a midterm exam and a final exam. Typically in four unit courses (most courses except science courses), you will write the midterm exam after 10 lessons. For five unit courses you would write the midterm after 12 lessons or the first three (3) units. The final exam is written at the end of the course and may include material from the entire course. 0.5 credit courses such as Civics (CHV2O), Careers (GLC2O) and the Mathematics Transfer course (MPM1H) have only one (1) exam at the end of the course. 
What do I do if I have questions about the course?
If you are having difficulties with the course and require teacher assistance, please attend our FREE teacher assistance session on Wednesday evenings at EA Lovell. This free service is available on a ‘first-come-first-served’ basis. The teacher specializes in math and science, hoever, can support general questions in other disciplines.  This is the only teacher access for help at this time. 
What is an e-journal? 
We do not use e-journals. Some of our courses are purchased from another company that uses e-journals when they deliver the course. For our purposes, an e-journal is your own paper. 
Frequently Asked Questions - General Program Questions
Are these courses the same as high school credit courses?
All credit courses offered by Learn@Home and Durham Continuing Education meet the curriculum expectations of the Ontario Ministry of Education and are the same credit expectations used by publically funded and accredited high schools in Ontario.
Can these courses be used for entry into college or university? 
Yes – Learn@Home courses are the same as any other Ontario high school credit and do meet the eligibility requirements for college and university programs. 
Do colleges and universities recognize these courses as the same as courses taken in a regular high school?
Yes – these are Ontario high school credits with the same expectations and curriculum of any other Ontario high school credit. 
Do I have to do prerequisite courses or can I jump right to the grade 12 University courses that I need for University entrance? 
As an adult student, prerequisites are recommendations and not requirements. However, we seriously caution students from skipping the prerequisite courses as the lower level courses will assist you in mastering skills needed for successful completion of the senior University level courses. 
I have been out of school for many years – how do I get my transcript? 
Generally you can obtain your transcript from the last secondary school that you attended – schools are required to keep records for 55 years. Most schools will take the request over the phone. In some cases such as the Toronto District School Board, records are kept in a central repository and must be obtained from that central location. Check with your last school first. 
I have never attended school in Ontario – can I still get an Ontario diploma? 
Yes – you can get an Ontario diploma. Some of your education from another province or country may also be recognized for credit towards an Ontario diploma. Each situation is different so book an appointment with one of our guidance counsellors to get started. 
I left school many years ago – can I still get a diploma? 
Yes. Even if you never attended high school you can still obtain your diploma. Book an appointment with our guidance counsellor to get started right away.
What courses do I need to graduate?
Although each individual situation is different, adult students will require 30 credits and compulsory credits that include English, Math or other, and a Science or Technology at the grade 11 and 12 level. Start by completing the "Request to Register" form to explore your options.
Frequently Asked Questions - Marks/Withdrawals/Fees
Can I mail in my lessons by Canada Post?
Unfortunately we do not accept lessons via Canada Post. Lessons must be dropped off in person to one of our offices or submitted by email. 
Can I send someone else to pick up my lessons and marks? 
You may have someone else pick up your lessons and marks provided they have written permission from you each time. They may be required to show photo ID and the permission letter will be kept in our office. 
How can I get my marks and lessons back?
Marks and lessons may be picked up in our main office. If you wish these to be sent to one of our other offices for pick-up, please call or email us with detailed instructions. Marks may be obtained by email, but must be requested using the email address provided at the time of registration. Please email us at LAH.Inquiry@ddsb.ca for more information.
How do I get my marks for college or university applications? 
If you are applying as a mature student, then it is your responsibility to have transcripts sent to OCAS/OUAC – they are not done electronically. You may take the report card to your last school and ask them to add it to your transcript, and then have a full transcript sent. However, some schools will not consolidate transcripts and therefore you will need to obtain a transcript with your Learn@Home marks from our Guidance office at 905.440.4539. 
How do I get this course added to my transcript?
If you are a recent (within 5 years) student of the Durham District School Board, the credit will automatically be added to your transcript. For all other students, it is your responsibility to take your report card back to your last school and have them add the mark to your transcript. In the event that they will not add the mark, in future you will need to obtain a separate transcript from our Guidance office for your Learn@Home courses.
How do I withdraw from my course and get my money back?
To withdraw from a course, please visit one of our offices and complete a “Request to Withdraw” form. Return all materials in good order with the completed form. Once submitted your deposit (where applicable) in the form of a cheque from the Durham District School Board will be mailed to you within 4 to 6 weeks. 
I have decided not do the course I registered for – can I get my money back? 
Only our materials deposit is refundable. Please return the materials to our office and complete the "Request to Withdraw" form.
If I withdraw from the course will it show up on my transcript? 

If you withdraw prior to submitting the 11th lesson (13th lesson in five unit courses), then the attempt will NOT show up on your transcript.

For all other students, it is your resonsibility to take your report card back to your last school and have them add the mark to your transcript.  In the event that they will not add the mark, in future you will need to obtain a separate transcript from our Guidance office for your Learn@Home courses.

What is the mark breakdown for the course?

All 1.0 credit Learn@Home credit courses consist of 20 lessons and two (2) exams with a mark breakdown as follows:
Lessons are worth 2% each = 40% of the final mark.
Midterm exam is worth 30% of the final mark.
