The School of Child and Youth Care offers distance, blended and/or campus-based course delivery options for the core BCYC degree program. All core courses are available by distance with the exception of one 10-day on campus seminar course. In some cases, core or elective courses may be available in a distance format only (e.g. CYC 410). Elective courses may only be available in either distance or on-campus formats.
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.
In addition to the regulations described below, the School of Child and Youth Care follows the UVic and HSD faculty academic regulations.
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.
The School of Child and Youth Care does not offer course challenge. With permission of the department, students who can demonstrate appropriate work and/or volunteer experience may register in the CYC 210A, Practicum I by Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) or CYC 310A, Practicum II by Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) courses. These courses build upon prior experience to allow students to demonstrate core practicum outcomes. CYC 410, Advanced Supervised Practicum is not available in this format.
