Distance education students are to write exams—for courses and diplomas—at their local schools, though students who require special exam accommodations may be permitted to write diploma exams at ADLC.
All assignments must be marked before exams can be released, booked, or written.
All students (not schools) must register themselves to write diploma exams through MyPass.
Please refer to Alberta Education’s General Information Bulletin for deadlines. Please ensure you leave plenty of lead time for us to get marks in to Alberta Education. If you are unsure of timelines, please ask your teacher.
Partners, please contact your local LN Liaison with any questions about the exam process.
Homeschool students need to arrange to write supervised exams through their associate school board or associate private school.
If a student’s associate school board or private school cannot provide or arrange for supervised exam accommodations, students will need to find their own exam supervisor, then complete and submit an Exam Supervisor Application Form .
If you missed our ADLC diploma registration deadline, you’ll need to fill out the Diploma Exam Registration/Rewrite Fee Form.
Important Student Information from ADLC
- Alberta Education Application for Accommodations for Students with Special Diploma Examination Writing Needs
Alberta Education has made diploma registration changes. Consequently, ADLC will not be sending out suggested diploma student lists to individual schools. We encourage schools to register their diploma students directly with Alberta Education. Schools still needing our assistance can supply us with a list of students, the courses and writing locations they want their students registered for.
Please remember that the Edmonton Financial Building writing centre has been moved to the Dentistry / Pharmacy Building on the U of A campus.
- Exam Supervisor Application Form
You may be asked to provide your own supervisor. If so, please use this form to advise us.
