University Pathway

EInfo

We recommend that students and parents/guardians spend time together on the E-Info link above to review all the University programs and requirements for the current school year. Using the Career Cruising website and their IPP (Individualised Program Plan) in preparing for the students’ next steps will assist the students in their grade 12 Exit Interview with planning for next steps. This tool, along with E-info and Ontario Colleges documents, will be very beneficial.  Students should also visit the Grade 12 table located in Student Services as it will have the New E-Info for university bound students.  Guidance will be using the Career Cruising messaging system to remind students of all importance information for Post Secondary so students are highly encouraged to be checking daily their emails on Career Cruising as they update their IPP.  The use of the messaging system and the Grade 12 table in Student Services are where key information for this exciting journey will be found.

 

The university registration fee for 2016 is $150.00 for 3 choices, and $50.00 for each additional choice. Credit card and on-line banking are the only options this year.   Payment is done when the student registers with SJSH STUDENT SERVICES in November. Dates and time are located below.

UIP: University Information Program is being hosted at Widdifield SS this year, on October 5th, 2016 at 6:45-9:00pm. Grade 12 students and their parents/guardians are invited to come and sit in on mini university presentations. Both students and parents get an opportunity to ask specific questions to the university, allowing them to finalize their research and choices for registration. Student Services invites grade 11 university-bound students to attend as well. It is never too early to start the journey. Seats are limited, so get there early!

Student Services will begin grade 12 interviews mid September and finish in November. Every grade 12 student will have an exit interview to discuss future plans, review graduation requirements, complete the purple GRADUATION INFORMATION AND DIPLOMA template and pick up any materials they require from the grade 12 information table. The purple GRADUATION INFORMATION AND DIPLOMA template is due back to Student Services no later than November 4, .Students are very much encouraged to check the grade 12 table in Student Services and the Career Cruising messages daily.

UNIVERSITY REGISTRATION OVERVIEW AND DATES

Students will be registering for university with Guidance in November. All university-bound students must attend a pre-registration presentation Monday November 7th in the auditorium. A sign-up sheet will be available a week prior to this. Final reminders about what is needed, the cost, methods of payment, how registration sign-ups take place, etc. will be reviewed. Students will also be given a university registration form. This form must be completed prior to registration.

University registrations will take place second and  third week of November. Specific dates and times will be Post in October.  Sign-up sheets will be on the Grade12 table in Student Services.  Registration must take place during the student’s spare. Students will not be excused from class to register.

Each student will be given an OAUC envelope, his/her PIN and a file folder. This information is the responsibility of the student.  They can begin checking their account for conditional offers in late December, and on a regular basis from this point forward. When a conditional offer is made and the student wants to accept it, he/she must accept it through their OUAC account and ensure they have followed all the necessary steps. The proof of acceptance page is to be printed and kept in the file folder. It is recommended that students keep this file folder for one year, in case they decide to change programs or schools the following year.

Any student planning on applying to out of province Universities should be checking that institutions website to see how their application process takes place, fees, deadlines etc. The student and parent/guardian are responsible for doing out of province applications on their own and are to contact Mrs. Edmund in advance if transcripts are required to be send. Please give Mrs. Edmunds 3 weeks notice and have all information provided for her to ensure your information gets to those institutions on time.

All Grade 12s who plan on applying for university or college will be registered by December 1, 2016.
