1.6 Admission

Note:

It is possible that individuals who have been convicted of a crime against a person may not be accepted into a school for any activities which are required under the Faculty of Education degree and diploma regulations.

  1. Admission to programs within the Faculty of Education is limited, selective and highly competitive. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance to a program. The Faculty reserves the right to limit the number of spaces available in each program. When the number of eligible applicants exceeds the number of spaces available in a particular program, preference may be given to students who are permanent residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.

  2. Applicants for admission to a program within the Faculty of Education must submit the appropriate completed application form and all supporting documentation to the Office of the Registrar in accordance with the deadlines specified for each program in the Application Deadline Dates table. Letters of reference and personal statement as required by the application form must be forwarded directly to the Faculty of Education. Students who must apply for admission/readmission to the University must also submit the General Application for Admission/Readmission to the Office of the Registrar within the deadlines specified in the University Diary.

  3. Admission to programs within the Faculty of Education is determined by a Selections Committee and is based on the criteria listed for each degree/diploma program. Applicants who are completing courses at this or another institution and for whom final and complete transcripts are not yet available may be granted provisional acceptance to the program to which they are applying pending the receipt of final transcripts. This provisional acceptance will remain valid until final transcripts are received. Provisionally accepted applicants may be granted a final acceptance upon review of the final transcript by the Selections Committee. The Faculty reserves the right to deny admission to a candidate who, in the opinion of the Selections Committee, is deemed unsuitable for admission to a program.

  4. Students who have been admitted to a program in the Faculty of Education requiring a teaching internship are advised that they may be assigned to any Provincial school district and are responsible for all travel and accommodation costs associated therewith.

  5. Students who have been admitted to a particular degree program offered by the Faculty of Education and who wish to change to another degree program within the Faculty must submit a new Faculty application form to the Office of the Registrar that will be considered in competition with all other students.

  6. In special circumstances, the Committee on Undergraduate Studies, on recommendation from the Admissions Committee may, at its discretion, consider an applicant or group of applicants as an exception to the requirements.

  7. Students who decline an offer of admission to the Faculty of Education, withdraw from the program, or who do not register for courses during the academic year in which admission is granted must, if they wish to be subsequently considered for admission, submit a new application in competition with other applicants.

  8. An unsuccessful applicant has the right to appeal against the decision of the Admissions Committee not to offer him/her a place, if it is felt by the applicant that the decision was reached on grounds other than those specified in the admission requirements listed in the Faculty of Education section of the Calendar. The appeal should be made in writing within twenty-one days of the notification of the decision and should be directed to the Dean of Education. The letter should state clearly and fully the grounds for the appeal. If the Dean of Education, in consultation with the Registrar, judges the grounds to be sufficient, the formal appeals mechanism will be initiated. Normally, appeals will only be considered in the case of procedural error and/or receipt of new information that is relevant to the application. Students are advised to refer to UNIVERSITY REGULATIONS - General Academic Regulations (Undergraduate) - Appeal of Regulations section of the University Calendar.
