Criminal Record Check

The criminal record check is only required after you have been admitted to the BEd program.

You will receive detailed instructions, criminal record check consent form, payment authorization and a memorandum of understanding to sign and return to our office after you have been admitted. Clearance of this criminal record check is mandatory before starting the BEd program. Please note there is a fee to process this check which you will be charged after registration. Detailed instructions are provided with the admission offer.

Applicants should not obtain a criminal record check in advance as any prior criminal record checks undertaken outside of this office will not fulfill this requirement.

If you have been convicted of, or given an absolute or conditional discharge, or received a pardon on a criminal offence and you are considering a teaching career, you should contact the Ministry of Education Teacher Regulation Branch (TRB) before undertaking a teacher education program.
