Diploma Exams - FAQ

What diploma session am I registered for?

TermDiploma Session
Fall January 
WinterJune

If a student plans to write their diploma exam before or after their designated diploma session, then they will need to register with Alberta Education as soon as possible to meet the established deadlines. 

When do I write?

All diplomas are administered according to the Diploma Significant Dates and Diploma Exam Schedule published by Alberta Education.

Students should arrive 30 minutes prior to the examination start time. Specific exam room locations will be posted at the entry to CBe-learn.

What are the fees?

Students do not have to pay to write their Diploma Exam the first time. Students who are rewriting an exam need to pay the Alberta Education rewrite Fee.

International students writing Diploma Exams are assessed a $50 fee from Alberta Education. This is payable directly to CBe-learn.

Writing during a different diploma session

Any student who is not registered for an exam, but wishes to take one must register with Alberta Education before the established deadline. The student will be asked to write the exam at their community High School.

Rewriting diploma exams

If you are rewriting a diploma exam, you are required to register with Alberta Education and submit payment directly to Alberta Education. Without this payment being submitted in advance, you will not be permitted to re-write the exam.

April and November diploma exams

Certain Diploma Exams are made available in November and April. These exam sessions are designed for students who are re-writing their diploma exam for a second time. Students may write their diploma exam in April or November if the following conditions are met:

1. The student has already written the diploma exam at least once.

2. The student has already completed the course.

3. A school-awarded mark has been submitted to Alberta Education.

4. The student has applied to register for the exam by contacting their school administrator by the registration deadline. 

Accommodations for Diploma Exams

Students must qualify in order to receive special writing accommodations for a diploma exam.

Since CBe-learn is an online school with a diverse population of students, it is not always evident which students need special writing accommodations and/or for what course subject. We need you, the student, to bring your exam accommodation needs to our attention!

  • Are you an ESL student?
  • Did you arrive to Canada from another country?
  • Do you have an IPP?
  • Do you have a chronic medical condition(s) or learning disability?
  • Do you have an acute medical condition or illness?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you may qualify to receive accommodations.  Please discuss  with your teacher within the first week of accessing your online course that you may require accommodations.  It is important that you start this dialogue early with your teacher.
