J.L. Ilsley College and University Handbook

 

 

 


 

The following process is recommended when applying to the institution of your choice:

 

 

  1. Gather as much information as you need to answer all questions. Attend all information sessions with post-secondary institutions of interest to you.
  2. Speak to your guidance counsellor and check out the information in the guidance office and on the bulletin boards.
  3. Check for deadline dates for all institutions of interest. Most applications are sent after first semester exams. Deadlines are usually between the middle and the end of March for entrance scholarships. Different institutions have different deadlines, and it is your responsibility to become familiar with those that are of interest to you.
  4. It is your responsibility to mail your application to each institution and to enclose the appropriate application fee.
  5. Please notify your guidance counsellor of your intent. Students will request copies of their transcript from the main (Vice Principal's) office after first semester marks become available.
  6. Post-secondary institutions will contact you directly if they require further information and to inform you of your application status. The status at this point is usually one of the following: early acceptance, deferred until June marks, or not accepted.
  7. In June, the guidance office will forward final transcripts to institutions outside of Halifax Regional Municipality only if you tell us where to send them. For institutions in the Halifax area, you must send your final transcript yourself. You will receive three final transcripts in your graduation package.
  8. ESL students: If English is not your first language and you have been in Canada less than three years you must arrange to write English Language Tests. Call Sylvan Learning Centre at 423-7373 to arrange for a "TOEFL".
  9. SATís: If you are applying to an American university you should obtain information on SAT's from the guidance office.

IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: YOUR FIRST SEMESTER MARKS ARE CRUCIAL. ADMISSION AND SCHOLARSHIPS ARE GENERALLY BASED ON FIRST SEMESTER MARKS.
