CHALLENGE PROCEDURES

During their time of study for the B.A. degree, students may only challenge one practicum. Students wishing to challenge will want to keep in mind that credit can only be given where there is sufficient evidence to show that the student has had a previous experience which is equivalent to (or better than) that which would be expected through successful participation in the actual course. Consideration to applications for challenge will be given in cases where a student has typically completed at least the equivalent of six months of full-time employment in a criminal justice setting with a government agency or with a recognized private social agency. Students wishing to challenge a placement should contact the Field Practice Coordinator and discuss the details of previous work prior to filling out the form attached below.

After an initial discussion with the Field Practice Coordinator, if students wish to challenge a practicum they should make application, using the "Application for Challenge" form. This form must be accompanied by a "Final Evaluation" form (or other such evaluation form(s) which may be approved by the Field Practice Coordinator) that should be completed by the student's immediate Supervisor. Upon receipt of these documents, the Field Practice Coordinator will review the application and make a recommendation to the Director of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice for a final decision. Students who challenge the Practicum will be required to complete a paper as agreed between themselves and the Field Practice Coordinator.

The University of the Fraser Valley is in accordance with the B.C. Government's Criminal Record Review Act and requires all School of Criminology and Criminal Justice students to complete a criminal record check through the Ministry of Public Saftey and Solicitor General.  Please find the forms below.
