Students will have an Academic Review completed after each Winter Term, within which all courses taken since the previous Winter Term will be used; this includes courses taken at the University of Calgary as well as those taken at other institutions on an approved Letter of Permission. Students in the Four-Year Community-Based BEd pathway must submit transcripts by August 1 each year if they have taken any courses outside of the University of Calgary in the previous year, so that an academic review can be performed. If transcripts are not received by August 1, future Education (EDUC) course enrolment will be impacted, additional Letter of Permission requests and other program exceptions such as Leave of Absence, may not be approved. The Associate Dean may also follow-up with students missing transcripts to discuss program impacts. Four-Year Community-Based student Academic Reviews will be conducted in August after transcript receipt; all other students will have Reviews conducted in the Spring Term.
Students in the Five-Year BEd (Concurrent) degree program will have their standing reviewed using completed courses in their co-degree prior to commencing the Education portion of their degree, to determine if they are eligible to progress to their Education coursework in the subsequent Fall Term. They will also have their academic standing reviewed after each Fall and Winter Term while in their Education coursework. Students in the Five-Year BEd (Concurrent) degree program must have completed all of their co-degree requirements in order to progress into their EDUC 400-level courses.
Academic and Progression Reviews for both Four-Year and Concurrent BEd pathways, require a minimum of 18 units of courses to be conducted. If fewer than 18 units have been completed since the prior review, the new review will be cumulative over the last two academic years.
Students in either pathway of the Two-Year BEd (After-Degree) degree program will have their academic standing reviewed after each Fall and Winter Term. Courses Extra-to-Degree that are taken during the BEd After-Degree program (in non-Education semesters) will be included in Academic Reviews.
A student's academic standing may be reviewed at any time at the discretion of the Associate Dean.
