1) Colleges outside Ontario require separate applications. You will need to write to most colleges for their application or check websites for applications. Addresses are all available on the internet. Deadlines vary.

2) If you are a part-time student considering a course obtained from Continuing Education, please discuss your plans with Mr. Lewis soon.

3) Information is arriving daily from the colleges. One of the best ways to prepare yourself for next year is to read as much as you can about the colleges that interest you. Visit the Student Services Office and browse through our literature. If you wish to sign it out, we ask that it be returned the FOLLOWING MORNING. . Stay tuned for announcements about the dates for this year.

5) Please access www.ontariocolleges.ca and share it with your parents. It is an excellent reference and contains the answers to many questions commonly asked about college admission, programs, residence, scholarships, etc.

6) I will be available throughout the year for inpidual and group counselling. Please make an appointment to discuss your educational and career plans.

7) Get into the habit of checking regularly the bulletin board in the Student Services Office. Notices of all visitors will be posted here.

8) All colleges have web sites. In addition to the printed resources and videos available in Student Services, I would encourage you to "surf the net".

 

FULL DISCLOSURE :

Effective Sept. 1/99 the rules changed about what will appear on your transcript. Any grade 11or 12 course dropped or failed after 5 instructional days following receipt of your first report card, will be noted as such on your transcript and therefore forwarded to OCAS. Therefore repeated courses will also now show.
