Once you have enrolled in a course, you must log in and view the first two lessons by the Tuesday two weeks after the start date of the course. If you do not log in and view the first two lessons, you will be dropped from the course.
Students who are dropped from a course will still be able to enrol in the course at a later date. Dropped courses do not count toward the limit of two courses per year.
