Opportunities (virtual) to gather information from universities, colleges and other post-secondary programs across BC:

For those students who have not yet taken advantage of our fairs, please share with your students that they can still participate. I have attached an updated schedule of upcoming fairs, and based on our experience to date, we do have the capacity to meet with more students.

Please also ensure that your students understand that during these times, the fair is LIVE and they can connect directly with the representatives of 29 universities and colleges and attend live presentations by many of these institutions. These presentations are scheduled at 15 minutes after the hour during these live event times.

 

The link to register and participate is: 

https://www.postsecondarybc.ca/virtual-fair/

 

I should also note that on our PSBC website, under the EVENTS listings, there are also a number of interesting online information sessions about specific programs, being hosted by member institutions, and encourage your students to regularly check our website for these new opportunities.

Hello!

I hope this email finds you and your students doing well, with many of you looking ahead to high school spring break. Today, we are sharing with you the March Newsletter from Student Recruitment at UNBC.

In this newsletter, we cover:

  1. Updates and clarification of Fall 2022 application deadlines
  2. General Entrance Award application deadline
  3. Online Information Session Recordings
  4. Campus Tours and appointments with Recruiters

2022/23 Application Deadlines – Extensions

Applications are currently open for Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 on EducationPlannerBC.ca. Some programs have a posted application deadline of March 1 or earlier. Many of these deadlines are extended. For example, Arts, Commerce, Planning, and Science majors are continually accepting applications for Fall 2022 (it’s never too late to apply). Competitive programs such as Engineering or Health Sciences have limited seats but will post if they are accepting late applications past the deadline or are accepting applications to a waitlist.

The reason we post any deadline is so that applicants have time to complete their applications, receive an admissions response, apply for entrance awards before their deadlines, and to have first choice of their schedule when course registration opens.

Our Admissions team maintains an up-to-date reflection of each program’s application acceptance status on our website at unbc.ca/admissions/undergraduate/undergraduate-application-deadlines - we highly recommend bookmarking this page!

Do not hesitate to contact us for clarification at futurestudents@unbc.ca.


 

Awards and Financial Aid Deadline – April 1

The Fall 2022 General Entrance Award application deadline of April 1 is approaching, but there is still time to apply for study and this awards competition.

Awards applicants must have applied and been conditionally accepted to study at UNBC before they can submit an awards application through their Student Online Services.

There are numerous scholarships, awards, and bursaries available, and most can be applied for by submitting a single, comprehensive general entrance award application. Our Awards and Financial team matches students with awards for which they are eligible based on this application.

Other awards require supplemental materials, such as essays or letters of reference, which must be submitted separately to awards@unbc.ca. The entire Awards Guide with each award and their criteria is found at unbc.ca/financial-aid under “Scholarship, Bursary, & Award Guide.”

We’ve been hosting online information sessions throughout the year, and a recording from our latest Awards and Financial Information Session will be uploaded to our Video site shortly. Other previous webinar session recordings are also archived here.

Past topics include:

  • All About UNBC General Undergraduate Info Session
