Summer term courses will take place on-campus, during a two-week intensive in July. Fall and winter term courses will be offered via distance, or involve your in-classroom field experiences, in your home community.
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.
"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
Due to the ongoing and evolving situation with COVID-19, the University of Calgary has moved to online course delivery for Summer 2021, meaning we will not be holding the on-campus classes. Online classes will begin on July 5th, 2021 and will conclude on August 11th.
Online Success Program
Newly admitted students are required to complete the Online Success Program, designed to orient you to the platforms and skills necessary to be successful in an online learning environment. The program runs in June, and requires about 45 minutes to an hour of time daily.
During your Summer terms, you will participate in orientation activities, built to familiarize you with the University community, resources that you can access (even during your distance-learning courses), and with faculty, staff, and fellow Education students. Check out our Community-Based Orientation site for details.
Community-Based students are able to take advantage of a group rate through Residence and Hotel Alma during their Summer courses. You will be given more specific information about booking upon an offer of admission. International Student Services has a handy guide to short and long-term accommodation options!
