27 BC –use Alberta – use Saskatchewan & Manitoba – directly to the school website Ontario –use Quebec –directly to the school website Maritimes –directly to the school website KNOW YOUR PEN # (9 – digits)!!

28  keep track of all applications – GT Binder / file folder  Will receive student # & info on how to access your student site  Look for contact info in confirmation /letter  Check if additional/supplemental applications are needed  Continue to monitor account for any additional paperwork/deadlines etc.

29  Distributed Learning, (ONLINE), courses are different…see me if you are unsure  DL school sends grade to Ministry  IDEALLY - complete DL courses by March/early April so the DL schools can submit grades  course must be at least 50% complete by end of March/early April for a submission of the mark to the Ministry (there are exceptions- double check)

30  FOR UBC… – If you wish to use your Distributed Learning (online) course in the calculation of your competitive admission average, the course must be 100% complete by February 1, Online courses that are being used to meet prerequisites, ( for example, French 11), can be completed by June 30, 2015

31 United States ◦ Usually a lot of paperwork! ◦ Sometimes common applications forms ◦ Stay ahead of deadline dates ◦ Will need to send paper transcripts ◦ Check each institution requirements carefully! ◦ SAT’s  American Universities determine the eligibility of applicants by their Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) results combined with their High School marks.  You should write your SAT (hopefully done!) as soon as possible if you are planning to attend a U.S. university.

32  Almost every post secondary institution has some sort of “English Language Proficiency” requirement  The most common is the Language Proficiency Index (LPI )  Fee is $ Handsworth date TBA – usually in April  No walk-ins. Must register 3 weeks in advance of the writing  Passport type picture required  More info to come in January  Study materials :

33  A Language proficiency test is used by many institutions to determine placement in first year English course….NOT as a means of getting into the Institution  To be exempt from the LPI:  UBC - 75% or better final grade  SFU - 75% or better final grade  Capilano U ( University Transfer) - 75% or better final grade
