Course Load

The normal course load is 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents) per term.

Accuracy of Registration

All students are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of their registration and for arranging their course selections to meet all program requirements as detailed in this Calendar.

Transfers Between Locations for Students Already in Program

Students already in the program who wish to transfer to another location must apply for transfer by February 1 for the following Fall. Students must:

1. Discuss the possibility of transfer with faculty advisors from both the location they wish to leave and the location they wish to transfer to. The decision will be made through consultation between the program directors and field co-ordinators at the two locations.

2. Fill out the Intra-Faculty Transfer Request form available through divisional offices.

Interruption of Program Leading to a Degree

Students who interrupt their degree program in the Faculty of Social Work are advised that after an absence of one calendar year (twelve consecutive months) from academic study at the university level, they may be required to comply with any regulations that may have come into effect in regard to their program requirements during their absence. Students who choose not to attend for a year (twelve consecutive months) will not be required to re-apply for admission. However, they must notify the Faculty of Social Work in writing by February 1 of their intention to return the following Fall. Students who interrupt their degree program for two or more years (twenty-four consecutive months) will be required to re-apply for admission. Students who are required to withdraw for academic reasons will not normally be readmitted.

Other Requirements

Most courses have a web-based component. In order to take advantage of this, students must be familiar with navigating the Internet and have access to a computer. Some courses may be available only online or by video-conferencing. Email is routinely used to disseminate information to students. An email address is required for full participation in courses and Faculty life. Calgary, Edmonton, and Lethbridge provide limited space in computer laboratories.
