- English 30-1

- One course from Group A, B, or C (**please read note)
*Admission will be granted to a student into the University Transfer Education program if the student presents the requirements as laid out above. However, each major/minor or chosen route (elementary or secondary) will require specific courses completed at high school to complete courses required within the degree. Math 30-1 or Math 30-2 is required for Elementary route students to complete the 6 credits of Math courses required within the program.
** Physical Education 30 or an approved 30-level CTS course (5 credits) may be used in the place of a Group B course.
While not an admission requirement for the program, students may be required to present a Criminal Record Check to those practicum agencies and field placements that require one of individuals working in their organizations.
Students planning to transfer to an institution other than the University of Alberta, will want to confirm the admission criteria for that institution.
Students will be granted admission to the University Transfer Education program if they meet the requirements listed above. However, this does not mean the student has been granted admission to Year two or three of the program. Successful admission to the Education program in Year two and three is determined by the institution to which students are transferring. Admission at Northwestern Polytechnic is based around the rules of the University of Alberta. Students spend the first one or two years taking courses that work towards the program in hopes of receiving admission based on the Grade Point Average students gain while at Northwestern Polytechnic.
Check with an Academic Advisor in the Registrar's Office. Students planning to specialize in a particular subject area, need to present Grade 12 prerequisites basic to that subject area. Students planning on completing an Elementary Education transfer degree with the University of Alberta, or the Teacher Education North Collaborative program, will be required to present successful completion of Math 30-1 or Math 30-2.
