GRADE 12 STUDENTS: Have you applied yet for college? If not, you should know that most colleges are open for online application in October. In fact, Langara and Douglas College open on October 1 for applications for September 2018. Colleges operate on a “First Come – First Served” basis, so early application is very important. Applying early means you secure an earlier course registration date in June. Even if you plan to attend university it is a good idea to apply to one college this fall as a back up to your university application. Any questions, please see your counsellor.
Welcome back to school! And congratulations on finding our Student Services Blog! This is where you’ll be able to find updates on upcoming events, post-secondary information, special presentations from visiting guest speakers, and reminders about special events and application deadlines. And if you have any questions throughout the year, come and see one of the counsellors in Student Services (room 317). -Moscrop’s Counsellors
