What If

What if I take that Anthropology class? What if I want to change my teachable? My major? Academic Requirements can help out with that, too, via its 'What If' report!

How to create a what-if scenario

Please note that the University of Calgary does not provide students with an assessment of transfer credit prior to formal admission. No transfer credit ever applies to Education major courses: you must complete all mandated EDUC classes in order to obtain your degree. Any transfer credit awarded can only work towards fulfilling non-Education classes.

Future Students can utilize Transfer Alberta in the meantime. This site provides a basic guideline as to what transfer credit you might receive.

If you are a newly admitted student, check out the Registrar's guide to enrolling as a transfer student. You should additionally utilize your Academic Requirements report to see how your prior courses fit into your degree. If Academic Requirements is not assigning a course to a particular requirement - and you think that it should be  - send us an email at upe@ucalgary.ca for further review!

Four-Year students are eligible to add a minor to their program, but should be aware of the following:

1. Due to the composition of this degree's requirements, completing a minor may require that you take more than the minimum-mandated 120.00 units ordinarily required. Please ensure you understand the progression, enrollment, motivational, and financial factors surrounding this!

2. Students may not declare a minor within the same field in which they are already pursuing a teachable subject area.

3. Minors can only be declared through the change of program process, open between October 1st and February 1st. Minors will not be added outside of these application dates.

Email

All University of Calgary students must use their Ucalgary.ca accounts for any and all University of Calgary or degree-related correspondence. Email will not be sent to personal accounts.

You must additionally ensure to include your eight-digit UCID number in all correspondence.

Non-Standard Scheduling

Please note that Education courses are scheduled with 'non-standard' dates and times, and may differ from those semester timelines that you are used to in your non-Education courses. You should anticipate courses or field placements that run outside of regular semester dates.
