"The time I spent on campus was really amazing. It brought me back into the student mindset and really set the pace for what the whole year was going to look like. It was also nice to be able to meet my fellow classmates and be able to put faces to names."
- Alexandra Crevier, BEd graduate
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.
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 experiences that run outside of regular semester dates.
Your Fall and Winter Education courses are paced - and do have deadlines - as well as ‘digital classroom’ components. Classroom sessions are known as ‘synchronous sessions’, in which your class will connect simultaneously via the Zoom conferencing platform.
Classes usually have around four synchronous sessions per semester, often scheduled for around 4.30pm or later. You should refer to the Zoom schedule via your Registration Guide for more information.
Each July, our Community-Based students join us on campus for Summer term courses, orientation activities, and to connect. Visit our orientation site for details on dates, sessions, and more!
