Bachelor of Education registration information

Registration information for the September 2021 intake will be posted here in mid-June.

BEd course information will not be immediately available on AURORA. Updates to Aurora are occurring on an ongoing basis.

Information Regarding Self-Declaration and Other Documents

To register for courses, all students must provide:

  • A Child Abuse Registry & Statement of Criminal Record(s) Self-Declaration form

In addition, newly admitted students must provide the following documents:

  • Clearance on a formal Criminal Records Check (CRC), including vulnerable sector (VS) screening
  • Clearance on a formal Child Abuse Registry Self Check (CAR)

For 2021 we will permit scanned and emailed Self Declaration forms. CRC and CAR must be originals.

The CAR and CRC documents are important required documents for professional studies in Education, as per your provisional admission offer. Therefore, you will not be permitted to register until these documents are cleared.

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

Self-declaration and record checks for newly admitted students

All newly admitted students must submit:

  • 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 Check (CAR)

All the above documents must be dated as of March 15, 2021 or later. Forms dated prior to March 15, 2021 are stale-dated and are not acceptable.

These admission documents are subject to the same rules as other admission documents. Your admission could be revoked if you do not provide them in time to register for the term.

You must submit your forms no later than June 30 to be able to register for the Fall Term.  Acquiring these checks can be a lengthy process, so we strongly recommend you act on this immediately if you have not already done so.

Please mail originals (excluding WPS online submission) of your forms to:

Faculty of Education – Admissions Coordinator

All originals will be returned to the student. As these are legal documents, we are unable to provide you with a photocopy of our copy at a later date.

Self-declaration for continuing students

Continuing students include all students who were admitted to the B.Ed program before the current year and are continuing in or returning to studies.

The Faculty of Education requires continuing students to submit a Self-Declaration (continuing students) form prior to course registration in each academic year. You must submit this form no later than June 30 to register.

A hold will appear on your Aurora Student account if you have not yet submitted this form.

In addition, you may be asked by school divisions for an official, current Child Abuse Registry check for all persons working or volunteering in their schools. They may also require a full Criminal Records Check.

Therefore, we are encouraging all continuing students to be prepared to provide the necessary documentation should it be requested by school administrators prior to beginning of your practicum.
