Western ONECard

Dear Teacher Candidate:

If you are new to Western, you will need to obtain your Western ONECard (student identification card). This card, which functions as both your identification card and library card (and if applicable, your meal plan card) requires your photo.

You may upload your photo electronically through studentservices.uwo.ca log in using your Western username and password. Your Western ONECard will be available for pick up when you arrive at the Faculty in September. The deadline to upload your photo is AUGUST 18, 2014.

You can also visit Student Central to have your photo taken for your Western ONECard during office hours.

When picking up your Western ONECard, please note that you will need your student ID number and one piece of government-issued photo identification such as:

-drivers license

-passport

-citizenship card

The name on your ID document must match the name that Western has on file for you.

Police Check – Reminder

If you’ve not yet begun the process for obtaining your police check, we advise that you do so now.

If you were born after January 1986 OR if you have previously received an OESC ID card, your police check should be done via the OESC at http://www.oesc-cseo.org/English/bed_students.html. (Please request the ID card plus one written report.)

If you do not qualify for the online check, it is your responsibility to check the procedures and timelines at your local police service. A copy of your completed police check must be submitted to the Teacher Education Office by the first day of classes, September 2, 2014. Failure to submit your police check on time, or submission of a police check that is not acceptable to a school board, may result in your withdrawal from the program.
