Normally students in the BEd program (all pathways) will take their required courses in the prescribed sequence. Students must successfully complete all courses mandated for their pathway in a given Education term before proceeding into the succeeding term. Students must successfully complete all 400-level Education (EDUC) courses prior to proceeding to the subsequent 500-level courses. Students must have a minimum 2.50 GPA to be eligible to progress into future Education terms.
Students in the Four-Year BEd (either the on-campus or Community-Based pathways) should have completed Education 201 before proceeding to any 400-level Education courses, and have completed all other requirements of their degree before proceeding to the 500-level Education courses, taken in the final year of the program. Students must have achieved a minimum GPA of 2.50, calculated on all courses taken since the student's last academic review, to be eligible to progress into any Education term. Failure to meet the minimum GPA results in being placed on academic probation.
Four-Year Community-Based students must complete the course Education 201 in their first Summer Term, followed by the courses Education 420, 430, 435, and 440 in the subsequent Fall Term.
Students are expected to complete the first three years of the Five-Year Concurrent BEd in their non-Education faculty. Students in the third year of the Concurrent program will normally be allowed to proceed into the fourth year, the first in Education (400-level EDUC courses), provided they have achieved a minimum GPA of 2.50, calculated on all courses taken since the student's last academic review, successfully taken Education 201 at the University of Calgary, and have completed all of the non-Education degree requirements of their degree. Students may not ordinarily take EDUC courses out of their mandated program sequence, without the express approval of the Associate Dean.
