The College awards certificates and bachelor’s degrees to its four thousand students upon completion of program requirements.

The campus facilities are state-of-the art, which is both rare and impressive for a smaller school. The Cousins Science Centre underwent major renovations in 2007 and includes a research-grade laboratory for undergraduate student use.
The SPHERE—Simulated Patient Health Environment for Research and Education—exists to allow students seeking employment in the medical field practical experiences in preparation for real-life scenarios for nursing and EMT majors, especially.
