Course Attendance

Course attendance at each session is crucial. If a student finds that it is impossible to come to a class, the CBS Office must be notified prior to the scheduled class time in order to ensure the student’s place is held. It is the student's responsiblility to contact the instructor for any missed assigned work. If a student misses a significant percentage of class time, e.g. more than 20%, or more than two classes, a failing grade may be recorded for the course.

Due to the nature of the learning contract and the small group format, each student has a responsibility to the other members of the group for the quality and success of the learning experience. Therefore, regular course attendance is a basic requirement in the CBS Program.

Sessional Dates

Please refer to the sessional dates for regisration, course enrollment, and drop and add dates.


Medical/Legal Responsibilities

The CBS Program/Faculty of Health Sciences assumes no medical/legal responsibility for clients/patients seen under supervision. Students must submit the appropriate legal waiver form and recording consent forms prior to the start of supervsion.


Because actual case material is used for educational purposes, measures to ensure confidentiality must be properly negotiated and these must be observed and respected by all those involved in the educational process.

Students expected to bring case material from their setting for a course must obtain approval to do so from their place of employment.

Students' Case Material

In courses where videotaped case material is required a recording consent form must be filled out and submitted to the CBS office.
