Students deciding to transfer to another program will have their transfer credits reassessed by the Office of the Registrar to align with their major program requirements. Students are strongly encouraged to consult with the Office of the Registrar prior to any program changes. Upon acceptance into the program and during each subsequent year, applicants are encouraged to have a satisfactory police record check with a vulnerable sector screening. This background screening is required by school boards and community partner organizations prior to having direct contact with students or young children. International students are expected to have equivalent documentation from their home country or an international police clearance certificate upon admission. Applicants who have successfully completed an Early Child Education diploma or equivalent as part of a degree-completion pathway, will be considered with a minimum of 7.0 university level courses at the time of application for the Primary/Junior BEd Division. In these cases, the overall diploma average will be calculated and used in place of the missing credits toward the weighted average calculation.
