The Premier’s announcements about the cancellation of exams apply to courses being taken through public schools in Nova Scotia.

During these challenging times the CSP team would like to take this opportunity to clarify the role of the EECD’s Correspondence Study Program.

CSP Exams and Course Completion during COVID-19 Pandemic

How Does Correspondence Studies Work?

In correspondence studies, you work at your own pace. But the best learning occurs if you regularly work at your course and submit assignments. If you do not submit any assignments to your marker for a period of one year, you will no longer be considered an active student. If you want to continue with your course after the one-year period, you will have to re-enrol and pay the registration fees again.

At this time, the Correspondence Study Program Office will only be enrolling students through the online registration and payment system.

We will not be accepting mail in registrations or walk ins until further notice.

Texts for CSP courses will not be available for purchase through the CSP office until further notice.

Course fee includes the course only. The stated fee does NOT include required books. Books can be ordered through us, or purchased elsewhere.
Correspondence Studies is self-directed study. You can register at anytime; enrolment happens throughout the year. Courses are not taught.
If you are under the age of 16 or are currently attending school, you must have approval from your principal, or regional education officer for home schooling, before you can enrol in a correspondence course. Your principal gives his or her approval by signing the reverse side of the application form. See next page for course information and prices.
Review our courses and take our quiz Is Online Learning for you? to understand what is involved with courses as self-directed study. Please contact us prior to enrolling if you have any questions.
Within two days of your registration, you will be sent an welcome email with all the information you will need, including a link to the digital version of the manual, which outlines lessons, assignments and course marker information. If you have requested a printed copy, you will NOT receive a welcome email.
