Elementary & Middle Years Registration Guide
Winter Session 2018/19

Registration opens May 18 & 22 to 24, 2018 at 9:00am

Please review all information and instructions below carefully.

All teacher candidates take the same core courses and remain together in cohorts for most of their course work. Cohorts may have different timetables and some variation in courses. All cohorts prepare teacher candidates to teach Grades K-7.

Step 1: Submit your ranked cohort preferences

  • Teacher candidates in the Elementary & Middle Years Option will be assigned to a cohort by the Teacher Education Office.
  • Review the list of cohorts under the Cohorts tab below.
  • You will receive an email on April 18 with a link to an online form where you will submit your ranked cohort preferences. The deadline to submit your preferences is April 25 at 11:45pm.
  • Review your cohort preference rankings carefully before submitting as changes to submitted rankings will not be possible.
  • You will be advised of your cohort placement and registration date in early May.
  • Please note that there are limited seats in all cohorts and a particular cohort placement is not guaranteed.

Step 2: Register in your assigned cohort’s timetable

  • Register in the standard timetable for your assigned cohort on the applicable date as per the Registration Instructions and Cohort Registration Schedule below.
  • Teacher candidates must only register in the standard timetable for their assigned cohort.
  • The TEO will monitor registration. TCs who register in a standard timetable for a cohort to which they have not been assigned will be de-registered by the TEO.

Teacher candidates may not add or drop courses from the standard timetable.

Cohorts have pre-determined practicum locations. Teacher candidates must arrange for transportation to assigned schools. Change requests based on transportation will not be approved. After you register in your cohort, you should complete the Elementary & Middle Years Practicum Placement Request Form.

Policies and Guides are available here.

French Teacher Candidates:
Teacher candidates with a specialization in French do not complete the cohort preference form as they will register in the Elementary French Specialists cohort standard timetable. The Elementary French Specialists cohort is restricted to teacher candidates admitted with a French specialization.

Registration Instructions

Step 1 If you did not pay an acceptance deposit, then you must pay a registration deposit prior to your registration date. The registration deposit can be paid beginning two weeks prior to your registration date.
Step 2 You can create a worklist at www.students.ubc.ca/ssc by adding your cohort standard timetable (STT).
Step 3 On your cohort's registration date (see Cohort Registration Schedule tab), log in to the SSC and register in a selected worklist or add your cohort standard timetable as follows:

The standard timetable contains all required courses for the Winter Session.

Step 4 Click on Timetable to print your course schedule. Re-print the schedule in mid-August in case changes have been made.
