ALBERTA

  • Effective April 1, 2015 a revised Alberta Transcript of High School Achievement is in place.
  • This revised transcript includes a new section for other credits defined as credits awarded for courses not taken in an Alberta accredited school (such as the RCM.)
  • The Royal Conservatory continues to serve as a provider of coursework that an Alberta school principal can award as credits towards Alberta curriculum, as appropriate.
  • The Royal Conservatory marks are reported in the other credits section as 'P' for Pass on the Alberta Official Transcript of High School Achievement. The Royal Conservatory marks are not Alberta school marks to report, however the credits awarded by an Alberta school principal do appear on the transcript and are considered for credentialing.
  • The Royal Conservatory marks are available. A student may request an offical transcript from The Royal Conservatory, for inclusion in Alberta Learning student portfolio.
  • For more information on the revised Alberta Transcript of High School Achievement please visit the Alberta Education Transcript webpage at http://www.education.alberta.ca/students/transcripts/revised/.

Students with strong music backgrounds may use their knowledge and skills to challenge for Credit in any prescribed New Brunswick music course. The criteria for challenge are outlined below.

Challenge for Credit is an opportunity to recognize prior learning and to acknowledge this through the granting of credit(s). The Challenge for Credit program is available in any prescribed course in the New Brunswick public school system in Grades 11 and 12. There is a limit of two challenge credits for graduation purposes. A student wishing to obtain a challenge credit must apply in writing to the principal, prior to or within two weeks of the beginning of a course. The application should indicate clear evidence of appropriate outside learning, congruent with the outcomes and requirements of an identified New Brunswick course and should be supported by at least one pedagogical professional.
