Our next all-day PSBC Virtual Fair is on Thursday November 18. Please find the Schedule of Presentations attached. With only two fair dates remaining in early December, we encourage you to take in one of the three remaining events to ensure you have the most current information on making the transition to a post-secondary institution.
Sign up and attend for specific sessions offered from post-secondary institutions ranging from Canadian Forces, to UVIC, SFU, UBC, CNC, UNBC, TRU, BCIT, etc.  113 in total!

Video on Virtual Fair: Here is a link to a short 1-minute video that provides a clear introduction for you and your students on how to use the Virtual Fair platform:



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: 



University and College reps are only available during these live hours, but students can return to the Virtual Fair at any time later to view videos and download information resources. Your students who have already participated can also return at any time to access these resources.

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.

Admissions Change – Admit-to-Program

Those familiar know that we offer both non-competitive, general entry programs, as well as competitive programs. This change is for the General Entry programs only.


For our non-competitive programs, we moved from General Entry high school admissions to an “Admit-to-Program” process that more closely matches first year required course prerequisites with admission requirements.



Before, students were fully admissible to General Entry programs with a 65% average among any combination of English 12, three academic 12 courses, and a fifth grade 12 course.


Using Commerce as an example, Admit-to-program has brought in Pre-calculus 12 with a 60% as an admission requirement, as this course is a prerequisite for some first year courses.



Applicants who meet the old General Entry Requirements but are missing a prerequisite for a required course within their major are not denied admission, but are granted conditional admission that simply requires them to complete the missing prerequisite at UNBC in their first year by using an elective course. The below chart indicates which UNBC courses can be taken as electives to meet missing prerequisites:



This change provides greater transparency and clarity to which high school prerequisites are needed to complete an intended major, and ensures students get caught up within their first year of study.


Upcoming Online Information Sessions for Future Students
