Grade 12 Parent Information Evening Presentation, September 21, 2017
University Information Program
The UIP (University Information Program) is an opportunity to speak to a representative from each of Ontario’s 21 Universities all in one location. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and research schools & their respective programs.
Applying to University
High school students have many questions related to applying to professional programs. These programs include Rehabilitation Programs, Law, Medicine & Education/Teaching. All of these programs require prior study at university in order to apply to the respective programs. Contrary to common beliefs, most undergraduate degrees do not need to be specific. This document includes valuable information for students thinking of applying to any professional program. It will help students realize the areas they can study in university, therefore allowing them to broaden their high school course selections.
Students will complete their university applications on-line with the support of the Guidance Department. We will be completing these in early November once we receive PINs from OUAC (Ontario University Application Centre). The application deadline for students is January 17. The OUAC website can be found at www.ouac.on.ca
The base application fee is $150.00. This allows students up to 3 choices. Additional choices may be made at a cost of $50.00 each. Payment may be made by credit card or electronic banking.
You can begin researching universities and programs by visiting the eInfo website www.electronicinfo.ca, or go to www.myblueprint.ca and login to your account to research programs your are eligible to apply to with the grade 12 courses on your current timetable.
