To ensure that credit will be granted towards a Bachelor of Education program for courses taken at another institution, students enrolled in a B.Ed. program must obtain approval from a program counsellor or academic advisor before the course is taken.
Generally, courses taken at other institutions are accepted by the College of Education if they are appropriate to a B.Ed. degree program option, and if they are approved for transfer credit. Students will be notified of their transferable courses once official transcripts have been received and evaluated. Courses credited towards the B.Ed. degree are included in the calculation of overall, External, and Education averages for promotion and graduation purposes.
Students wishing to earn a B.Ed. from the University of Saskatchewan must complete at least 48 credit units from this university, 36 of which must be from the College of Education. At least 30 of the last 60 credit units credited towards the B.Ed. degree must be taken at the University of Saskatchewan, and 24 of these 30 credit units must be Education courses. In accordance with the regulations of the University of Saskatchewan, credit will be given for only 12 credit units taken at any one spring or summer session at another university.
