Your registration date will be determined by the last two digits of your student number and will be available on your Aurora record effective July 10.

Faculty of Education staff will begin registering all students in mid July. To determine which courses staff will register you for, please review the document entitled “Registration Information” (below) applicable to your specific stream. You are responsible for registering in a number of courses, including your practicum courses. It is important that you review the course requirements as there may be pre- or co-requisite courses.

NOTE: Staff may not have completed all student registrations by your access date. If you are not yet registered by staff, you may register in your cross stream course, Aboriginal education course, etc. provided you do not choose a section that conflicts with your cohort course(s).

Specific Faculty of Education, Bachelor of Education (BEd) registration and timetabling information is available through the documents (PDF) listed below.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR YEAR 1 STUDENTS
regarding the limit on Aboriginal Education and Special Education courses

Aboriginal Education and Special Ed/Diversity courses are in high demand. As such, students in Year 1 are permitted to register for one Aboriginal Education course and one Special Education/Diversity course in their first year. Any student in Year 1 who has registered for more than one Aboriginal Education course or more than one Special Education/Diversity course will be removed from one (the Scheduling Coordinator will determine which one).
If after July 31 (NOTE: date changed) there remains space in these courses, Year 1 students will be permitted to register for another.

To register for courses, you must provide the following documents and information:

  • A Child Abuse Registry & Statement of Criminal Record(s) Self-Declaration form
  • Clearance on a formal Criminal Records Check (CRC), including vulnerable sector (VS) screening
  • Clearance on a formal Child Abuse Registry Self Check

NOTE:Due to Covid-19 impacts such as the closures of rural police detachments and the University’s decision to offer classes via Remote Learning for Fall term classes, for this year only, we will permit students to register who have not yet been able to obtain and submit their Criminal Record Check (with VS screening) and their Child Abuse Registry check. However, all students must have submitted their completed Self-Declaration form to continue with registration.

The CAR and CRC documents remain important required documents for professional studies in Education, as per your provisional admission offer. The deadline for these documents to be received in our office is October 1, 2020. If we do not have your CAR and CRC documents on file by this date we will withdraw you from all courses, including practicum.

See details below for information specific to new and continuing students.

You may have difficulty at this time obtaining your Criminal Record Check. Please call your law enforcement agency (RCMP, Brandon City Police, Ste. Anne Police, etc.) to ask if you can request a CRC. Monitor the situation with their office and order the CRC as soon as you are able to do so.
