Fall 2020 Information

Educational institutions around the world have had to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions it has necessitated. At Emmanuel, we have made a number of important changes to our operations so that we can keep our community safe while continuing to equip believers for service in the church and in the world. Please note that we intend for many of these changes to be temporary.


Most courses are offered exclusively through Distributed Learning (also known as Distance Education). In this mode of learning, instead of having live lectures in person or online, students learn at their own pace within the framework of a regular academic semester. Students still complete research papers and other typical assignments and receive grades as usual. Two courses are offered through Live Online, in which students participate in live lectures through two-way internet streaming. To review the large selection of courses available this semester, view the Fall 2020 Courses list. Any questions relating to academics may be addressed to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@emmanuelbiblecollege.ca.

The campus is closed to the public but is offering select services to students. The Library has resumed limited operations, Residence rooms are being rented, and certain areas of the J. H. Sherk Education Centre are available as study space. The College is also hosting a number of events for students. Important safety protocols and restrictions are in place for all of these operations, services, and events. Contact studentlife@emmanuelbiblecollege.ca for more information.

Winter and Summer 2021

Emmanuel will continue to offer courses through Distributed Learning in the Winter and Summer 2021 semesters but is also actively exploring other options for course delivery and enhanced faculty-student engagement as the pandemic situation develops.
