The article outlines the results of survey research on part‐time programming at Canadian universities and the needs and characteristics of undergraduate student populations with potential for part‐time degree completion. Data on Canadian universities were examined in four major categories of variables including institutional backgrounds, part‐time degree programmes and programme administration, evening and weekend course offerings and course administration, and services for part‐time students. Data from student groups were examined in six categories including demographics, academic backgrounds, finances and employment, educational expectations and student services, technology and alternative delivery methods, and advantages and disadvantages of part‐time attendance. Findings suggest changes may be necessary in university functioning in order to serve part‐time student populations better. Implications for institutional policy and practice are discussed in four general areas: part‐time enrolments and degrees; evening and weekend programming; demographics, student services and cost‐effectiveness; and technology and alternative delivery.
