For all Faculty of Education programs

The Faculty of Education 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.

The Faculty does not require criminal record checks or other screening procedures as a condition of admission to programs. However, students should be aware that such record checks or other screening procedures are required by school districts and schools that host Faculty of Education students.

School districts and schools will not accept a student without a clear criminal record check or other screening procedure, which would prevent the student from completing a required component of the program. As a result, such a student may not be eligible for promotion or graduation.

It is the responsibility of the student to have such procedures completed as required at his/her own expense. The Faculty of Education expects a student to provide evidence of a clear criminal record check before he/she is assigned to a school.
