University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Werklund School of Education 2. Program Information 2.4 Police Information Check
2.4 Police Information Check

All students participating in a Field Experience in a given academic year with the Werklund School of Education are required to provide a current and clear Police Information Check which includes a Criminal Record Check and a Vulnerable Sector Search. Students must arrange for a Police Information Check through their nearest police service or RCMP detachment in the area where they reside.

The original Police Information Check must be presented to and accepted by the administration in the Undergraduate Program Office in the Werklund School of Education, dated within timelines as directed by the Field Experience team. All students must also present the original police information check to the partner school administration on the first day of each Field Experience (Education 440, 465, 540, 560), and as requested by the Field Experience team.

Students who do not present a clear Police Information Check will not be placed in a Field Experience and as a result, cannot continue in the Education program. Successful completion of Field Experience is required for graduation.

A Police Information Check is required for all experiential learning placements. Failure to present a clear Police Information Check will result in the student being unable to complete their community placement. Students are obligated to inform Undergraduate Programs in Education immediately of any change in status of their criminal record whether participating in a Field Experience or experiential learning placement.
