Degree Requirement Student Checklist
Students in the Concurrent and Part-Time Consecutive BEd can check that they have completed all the requirements for their BEd by using the checklist available on SharePoint The degree requirement checklists are listed under “Links” on the left-hand side of the Undergraduate homepage. You will need to log in to Passport York. Candidates in Summer Science, Indigenous Education, Jewish Teacher Education and the BEd (French) program options must also check their specific BEd program requirements separately.

Are You on the Official Classlist?
A teacher candidate will not receive a final grade for coursework if he/she is not listed on the official classlist. You should not attend classes for a section that is not the one listed on your student record. Because official classlists are used for submitting final grades, if you are listed on a classlist for one section but attending another, you will receive a failure grade because you did not submit assignments to the instructor for the section where your name appears on the classlist.
