|ADDITIONAL PROGRAM INFORMATION|
Obtain official transcripts (in the original sealed envelopes) from every post-secondary institution attended, and proof of any previously earned trades qualifications, certificates, or diplomas. Submit all official documents directly to the UFV Admission and Records office.
These documents are required to determine the credit that will be awarded toward the degree and to assist in planning your program of study.
PROGRAM LENGTH AND LOCATIONS
The length of time required for completion of the program depends on the number of courses taken per semester and the number of prior learning credits accepted.
WORKLOAD AND EXPECTATIONS
Course-related work in the program combines theory and practice. Use of the library between class meetings is expected. We encourage program participants to develop good writing and critical thinking skills. As a general guide for determining the number of courses undertaken at one time, you should expect to spend at least three hours outside of class for each hour in class, in addition to any necessary travel time. Participants who have family and/or employment responsibilities should give careful thought to the number of courses in which they register at a given time.
Increasingly course participation involves students needing to have ready access to the Internet for both email and web access. Many courses now supplement traditional paper text with materials available only online.
PRIOR LEARNING ASSESSMENT AND RECOGNITION (PLAR) AND TRANSFER CREDIT
Within the terms and conditions of program completion outlined above, any or all of the following types of credit (to a maximum of 90 credits in total) may be used in attaining credit to be used towards the BA in Adult Education.
Transfer Credit: Up to 90 credits are available through evaluation of previous studies.
Portfolio Assessment: A maximum of 30 credits can be obtained through portfolio assessment. The portfolio is prepared normally as part of a UFV credit course (ADED 200). Credits awarded through portfolio assessment will not necessarily be transferable to other degree programs or institutions.
Course Challenge: these are credits which are awarded through a specifically arranged process, by which a student demonstrates mastery of course objectives without taking the course. Regulations related to course challenge are outlined on page 22 of this calendar.
