Special Access applicants admitted in the PRE CYC admissions category are advised to complete 12 units of coursework before applying to the degree program. Upon successful completion of these courses, students may apply to the Child and Youth Care degree program.
SCYC practica regulations include the HSD Academic regulations on practica and professional conduct and the essential SCYC Requirements for Passing Practicum Courses in Child and Youth Care. Students enrolled in practicum courses must pass the course with a C+ or better and demonstrate competence in all four professional practice criteria listed below:
Students will be assessed on the professional practice criteria on a pass/fail basis. Details of how these requirements are assessed are located in the individual course syllabi. Failure in any one of these criteria will result in a F(49) on the student transcript.
Learners may receive recognition for demonstrated learning that is consistent with the achievement levels and learning outcomes appropriate to selected courses. The assessment of prior learning will be completed within a special course section dedicated specifically to this function. Only students who have been admitted to the School of Child and Youth Care and are registered at UVic can apply for course challenge. No fourth-year courses may be completed by prior learning assessment.
