Here is your first bit of information for students interested in attending UNBC:
Please be aware that students in Grade 12 are eligible to be considered and apply for other UNBC Award Competitions such as the:
a) Early Entrance Awards: Raven Scholarship & UNBC Merit Award (automatically considered for*) & UNBC Leadership** Awards (includes the: President’s Silver Anniversary Award for Excellence in Leadership & UNBC Leadership Award - requires an online awards application & reference letters to be completed/submitted by December 15, 2020).
b) Entrance Awards (requires a UNBC online awards application and may require some additional documentation by March 1, 2021)
c) General Awards (requires a UNBC online awards application and may require some additional documentation by March 1, 2021)
* Grade 12 students should apply for ADMISSION to UNBC between now and December 4th, 2020 so that they have enough time to get a provisional offer of admission from UNBC… which will then enable them to be considered for these two Early Entrance Awards, apply
** using UNBC’s MyUNBC / Awards & Financial Aid / Award Application, and to access the Other UNBC award applications (Entrance Awards & General Awards).
The link to apply to UNBC is: www.unbc.ca/apply Admissions
Undergraduate Admissions If you are looking to apply for a post-secondary certificate, diploma or Bachelor's degree, you'll be applying for Undergraduate admissions. If you are currently in high school, attending college or university and want to transfer, or even just take some courses, this admission information is for you.www.unbc.ca
Attached is a pamphlet that you can provide to interested parents/students/staff regarding UNBC Awards & Financial Aid Information and the upcoming UNBC Award Competition deadlines, or feel free to forward a portion of this email along to parents/students.
As always if students miss applying for admission by the December 2020 or March 1st, 2021, they can still apply for admission right up to the start of the September 2021 Semester… but it is best to apply for admission earlier so they can also be considered/apply for UNBC awards and be admitted early enough to register for the courses they want.
