Tips for Graduating Students
  1. Begin researching your post secondary school plans early; contact university/college liaison representatives and or find out about apprenticeship and work options. Use Web links below or visit the guidance office for more information.
  2. Attend the university and college fairs. Listen to the announcements for in school visits.
  3. If you are planning on attending a university/college out of province or country remember that their deadlines are early. SAT’s or other testing may also be required.
  4. Take advantage of university and college fall, spring fairs and open houses. You would never buy a car without test driving it, why would you attend a university/college without visiting it.
  5. Research costs. Think about how you will finance your education ie OSAP, scholarships or work. There are millions of dollars available. Scholarship applications take time to fill out; get started early.
  6. Keep files for each university/college with important information they send you. Identify important deadlines on a calendar and keep it handy and visible.
  7. Remember that deadlines are firm. By not meeting deadlines you are jeopardizing your application.
  8. Supplemental and scholarship applications take time. Begin researching early and ensure that they are impeccably done.
  9. Have a plan, work hard and stay focused. Final marks do count and offers are rescinded in July and August if you fall below cut off averages. If your marks improve some universities/colleges will increase scholarship offers.
  10. Stay positive! It may be a tough year, but you can do it!
