Important Dates and Deadlines

For Current Students

Download a PDF version of the Student Calendar here.

Please note that you are responsible for being at all mandatory meetings and submitting paperwork for all deadlines (colored blue) that correspond to your track and status. It is recommended that you work with your advisor to ensure that you know which meetings to attend. Below is a general guide as to when you should attend meetings and what deadlines apply to you.

Important things to remember about meetings and deadlines:

  • If you are going to enroll in Practicum or Internship in the next semester, you need to pay attention to the application deadline in the semester before that experience as well as the mandatory Practicum or Internship Orientation that occurs the semester before that experience.
  • If you are in your first semester of practicum (for SCH students only) or first semester of Internship (CMHC & MCFT students only), you need to pay attention to:
    • the CPCE application deadline for the exam that happens next semester.
    • the date for the mandatory Graduation Orientation that occurs that current semester.

Consequences for missing a mandatory meeting – if you miss a mandatory meeting without an excused absence (defined below), or if you miss a deadline for an application, you will not be able to proceed in your plan of study. For example, if you miss the mandatory practicum meeting, you will not be able to take practicum the following semester, thus pushing your graduation date back by a full semester.

Excused absence – if you must miss a mandatory meeting, you need to notify your advisor immediately as well as the person responsible for leading that meeting. Excused absences would include a documented medical issue, a family emergency, and/or a documented religious observance. Vacations, conferences, work-place events, and the like will not qualify as an excused absence.
