Registration Guide - On-Campus


Information for all students

Please register in your classes as soon as you are able to, in order to build your optimal schedule: we are unable to overload full classes. Additionally, do enroll in all of your EDUC courses for the upcoming year: both Fall and Winter enrollment is available during the same registration appointment!

Plan to be available from 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday! We do have some flexibility in our course offerings, but cannot guarantee that we can accommodate timetabling preferences. Additionally, some 'empty spaces' have been built to allow for group work, professional development, field trips, and other events.

Please Note: It is not possible to take Community-Based sections as an On-Campus student, regardless of seat availability. Exceptions are not made for any work, volunteer, or other scheduling conflicts, due to the high volume of requests received. Per above, plan to be available on-campus 8.00am to 5.00pm, and review our Summer course offerings, selected online options, and Field Experience dates in the tabs, below!

You should also take advantage of Schedule Builder to help plan your weekly timetable. Shopping cart validation is also available - check out the Registrar's site on how to check your shopping cart for potential errors.

Note I: Not enrolling in all of your courses - especially your Field Experience classes - may result in issues securing you a partner school placement in terms of both suitability and timeliness. The Field Form and our Field Team's communications operate on the basis of your registration.

Note II: Fees holds will prevent you from registering in your courses, and critically, will also prevent our Field Team from swapping you into the appropriate Field Experience course section once assigned. If you are not properly enrolled in the right section, your Field Instructor cannot assign your grade. Please ensure to clear up all fees holds as soon as is possible.

Scroll down for more information on registration dates, flagged enrolment issues, as well as your specific Guide, based on whether you are taking your 400 or 500-level courses.

Taking Summer Courses as an On-Campus Student

On-Campus students have the opportunity to take EDUC 525 and/or EDUC 535 in the Summer term, if desired. Our Summer course offerings are prioritized for Teaching Across Borders and Community-Based students. Once these students have been able to register, we will open these classes up to all other students, space-pending. To enrol, you must submit a request via the form below.

Summer 2024 Request Dates: The Summer Course Request form will open April 8th, at 12.00pm (noon), and close on April 30th, at 12.00pm (noon).

Considerations Before Submitting your Request:

Note I: Summer courses will take place from July 8th to 19th, excluding weekends. EDUC 525 runs 9.00 - 11.50am; EDUC 535s run 1.00 - 3.50pm.

Note II: While these courses run over two weeks in July, they are bound by Summer semester dates. As such, students should be aware that the last date to drop these courses without penalty is July 8th, the first day of classes. Dropping after this date will incur a 'W', or withdrawal grade, without tuition refund.

Note III: Students not heading into their final year of 500-level EDUC courses cannot take EDUC 525 or 535 this Summer – if offered, they can only be taken immediately preceding a Fall term of other 500-level EDUCs.

Students need also be aware of the following:

1. A seat in the Summer term courses is not guaranteed - it depends entirely upon space availability. Please note that seats in EDUC 535 are particularly limited, and some sections may not be able to accept any On-Campus students;

2. Students should acknowledge that they may have assignments, group-work, papers, etc, due after July 19th, as the Summer term technically runs until the end-of-August;

3. Tuition is due July 3rd;

4. Students should enrol in the Fall term equivalent of their desired Summer offering in the meantime. Because a seat in the Summer term is not guaranteed, students will want to ensure that they have registered in all 500-level courses mandated. If successful in gaining a Summer term spot, registration will be 'swapped' on the student's behalf. Students who fail to enrol in the most desirable time for the Fall section, and who are unable to be offered a Summer term seat, will have to enrol in whatever Fall section is left: students will not be overloaded into full courses due to 'late' registration;

5. In the instance of more requests received than available seats for a given course, registration offers will be made based on form submission time-stamp (first-come, first-served).

Due to popular demand, we have developed some of our 400 and 500-level EDUC courses as online offerings, specifically for our On-Campus students!

Further permissions are not required for the majority of these sections: to enroll, check out your Guide, below, and look for those sections that are marked as online offerings. Simply enroll in these classes as you would any of your others!* Check out the above tab for this year's enrollment dates.

*Students interested in Fall 500s should refer to the TAB Section Request information, below.

Note I: Adding/dropping/swapping works for these sections in the same way as it does for any others. Please be aware of enrollment capacities, and the last days to swap into an online course from an on-campus (should seats be available), or vice versa! Add/drop dates may be different, due to the different meeting patterns of on-campus versus online courses. We cannot enroll you in an online course past its add date, nor can we swap you back into an on-campus class past its add date.

Note II: Please note that just like your on-campus courses, we will not overload you into an online section should it be full. Registration is first-come, first-served, as it is with your preferred on-campus section times! Please anticipate your schedule accordingly - all of your classes may wind up being in-person!

Note III: Sections reserved for Community-Based students will not be made available to On-Campus students, regardless of seat availability.

Note IV: Please note that after review by the Associate Dean and other faculty members, only specific courses have been chosen to be offered online. If an online section is not listed under a particular course, it isn't offered!

Note V: Before enrolling in an online section, we encourage you to check out the Zoom Session Schedule for these courses, as classes are not self-paced, and have mandatory synchronous sessions.

Note VI: Fall 2024 online EDUC 500 options will include EDUC 521 and EDUC 530. Online offerings depend on seat availability in the online Teaching Across Borders sections, after participating TAB students have registered. Please thoroughly review our Fall TAB Sections Request Form if you are interested in taking one of these classes online! Requests for 2024 will open April 8th, at 12.00pm (noon), and close on April 30th, at 12.00pm (noon).

Four-Year and Concurrent progression regulations are embedded in our EDUC 400 and 500-level courses. Sometimes, this can cause enrolment errors if the registration system sees some of the below common issues, making it seem like you may be short course units. These include:

  • Outstanding Letter of Permission or study abroad/exchange credit;
  • Courses with D grades not being used towards your co-degree or teachable, or;
  • Missing a Literature course

If you have across-the-board error messages when attempting to enrol in your EDUC 400s or 500s, please email us at upe@ucalgary.ca so that we can troubleshoot! We are often able to post registration allows so that you can get into your courses while we wait for transfer credit to be posted, D grades to be investigated, and more! If you are concerned about meeting progression regulations, please do not hesitate to connect with us!


400-level EDUC course terms

  1. EDUC 420 – Issues in Learning and Teaching

    All Students: Lecture 01

  2. EDUC 427 – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math

  3. EDUC 430 – Pragmatics of Learning and Teaching

    Please read the information contained in the below EDUC 430 tab prior to enrolling. EDUC 430 will be opened to enrolment on May 29th at 12.00pm (noon), MST - if you live outside of the Calgary time zone, ensure to check your local time!.

    Secondary: Pick Any of Sections 07 - 10

  5. EDUC 440 – Field Experience I

    All Students: Lab B99

    Please Note: All students will register in Lab B99, and will later be moved to the appropriate section based on section selections for EDUC 430.

    Field I Dates, 2024: October 7th - 18th. Check out our field page for more information.

    Reminder: Your Field I placement location is informed by your EDUC 430 section registration, as each 430 section corresponds to a different geographic area. 

EDUC 430 is an on-campus course, taking place Mondays and Fridays. However, each section corresponds to a different geographic area, which will help inform where you are placed for your Field Experience I (EDUC 440). As such, to ensure an equability of access to desired sections for all of our students, this course will remain closed until late May, once the majority of students' enrolment appointments have been generated. Students should enrol in all other Fall and Winter courses in the meantime. If you are enrolling shortly after opening day, know that it can take a minute for all of our systems to refresh - particularly Schedule Builder. As such, we suggest looking for on-campus sections via Course Search!

Note I: We cannot overload students into full sections, as our numbers are constrained by available partner teacher schools. Students are thus encouraged to have two or more back-up sections in mind when registering, in case your first choice section fills up. Please note that you will not be able to register in more than one section simultaneously - simply keep your picks written down!

Additionally, know that:

A. Only Field I is informed by your EDUC 430 registration: future placements will be informed by the Field Experience Placement Information Form (more information about this form and process will be sent to students by our Field Team in the Fall), and;

B. During Field, all other courses stop - you do not have to attempt to commute from the University to your placement in between classes! Your Field Experiences run the length and breadth of the school week over its stated dates (see the registration information for EDUC 440).

As such, if you are unable to get into your preferred section, please enrol in the next best option: while we cannot overload you, Field I is just two weeks, and your location will not follow you into future Field placements.

Note II: You must still register in EDUC 440 - that is your actual Field Experience course! Registering in EDUC 430 does not get you enrolled in Field (and vice versa).

Note III: French and Second Languages students must register in Section 12. Your registration will be amended accordingly if you enrol in another section (Ie, You do not have a choice of geographic area, due to language constraints). Non-French and Second Languages students who have enrolled in Section 12 will be dropped, and asked to enrol in another section with remaining seat availability.

Note IV: Sections will not be visible in the Student Centre/Schedule Builder until opened. All sections run Mondays and Fridays - please refer to the section times, below, to help plan your class schedule.

What to know about Field Experience geographic alignments:

Our Field Experience team works to confirm Field I host schools throughout the Spring and Fall. Field I placement schools are generally confirmed and assigned in September. As a result, we can only share tentative geographical alignments that reflect historical field experience placements. Section descriptions with additional details are intended to assist with your registration, however, we ask you to please note the following: 

  • Your 430 section will prioritize your Field Experience placement in a specific area or quadrant in Calgary and Area. Please know that placement sites are limited, and we appreciate your flexibility!
