Most community colleges/universities list two year community service diplomas related to disability, therapy assistants, aging, mental health, youth & child care, classroom support, therapeutic recreation, psychiatric nursing, deaf/blind/addictive counselling, etc. These programs provide an excellent foundation for advanced education in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies.
Many of these programs have negotiated block transfer to the BCR at the U of C.
All diploma listed are a full transfer into the program, please note that once you are admitted into the BCR program and are studying in Calgary and you have a non-disability diploma you must take CORE 323. Please refer to the link above to view if your diploma requires CORE 323.
