    6. When will the classes be offered?  In our earlier program, classes were offered in a block whenever possible to accommodate students who traveled.  The timetable may vary from year to year based on the scheduling of classroom space and the availability of instructors.

    7. What does it mean to be part of the cohort?  You will be committing to the cohort model which means you intend to complete the full four years through Cumberland College.  You will be allowed to bring transfer credit into the program but once the cohort begins, we ask that you do not enroll in courses outside the program.

    8. How are the courses offered?  Most, if not all, of the classes will be taught face-to-face with an instructor in Melfort.  With the previous program, all but one class was face-to-face.

    9. Do you know all of the classes that will be offered?  At this time, the approved electives have not yet been determined.

    10. Are there scholarships available?  Cumberland College has a generous scholarship program, awarding over $110,000 in awards annually! Bachelor of Education students will be eligible to apply for awards in consecutive years. Students beginning their studies at Cumberland College can apply for one of 25 Entrance Scholarships valued at $2000 each, 5 of which are designated exclusively for Indigenous students. Applications for Entrance Awards are completed online through our website with a deadline of April 30. Once students are actively attending classes at Cumberland College, they are eligible to apply for a wide assortment of general awards.  The application for deadline for these awards is January 31 of each year.  In addition to our local awards program, Bachelor of Education students are also eligible to apply for U of R scholarships.

    11. What are the costs?  Cumberland College is purchasing the program from the University of Regina.  Since it costs a little more to offer courses off-campus, tuition will be slightly higher.  For example, if the U of R tuition is $708/class, the tuition at Cumberland College would be approximately $779/class.  Remember that you will save money by living at home which can save you up to $10,000 per year!

    12. Where will I intern?  North East School Division (NESD) has worked closely with Cumberland College and the University of Regina to ensure that the students receive field placements within the region. Besides the NESD, students may be placed in other local school divisions or in First Nations communities.  The University of Regina tries to accommodate student’s top 3 choices for location and top 3 choices for grades to intern.
