University of Calgary Calendar 2023-2024 Werklund School of Education 3. Werklund School of Education Regulations 3.2 Registration and Courses 3.2.9 Leave of Absence
3.2.9 Leave of Absence

Students are allowed to request a leave of absence for a period of up to one year after successful completion of one term in the BEd program. Ordinarily, only one leave of absence will be granted for the duration of the BEd program. Students will be notified in writing if they are approved for a Leave of Absence.

Students who wish to take a leave of absence must make a formal request in writing to the Director of Student Experience. Students returning to the program after a leave of absence must notify the Werklund School of Education by March 1 if they are planning to return for the Fall Term (or Summer Term for students in a Community-Based BEd pathway) and by October 1 if they are planning to return for the Winter Term. Due to the prescribed nature of the BEd programs, students returning from a year-long Leave of Absence must register no later than the next available term in which their required courses are offered.

Students who do not return to the program after their leave of absence will be required to re-apply for admission (see section 3.3 Readmission).

Students may not interrupt their degree program in the Werklund School of Education unless they are on an approved Leave of Absence. Students who have not registered in a given academic year without an approved Leave of Absence will be removed from the program, and will be required to re-apply.
