IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU REGISTER FOR SUMMER SCHOOL COURSES EARLY, AS YOU MAY NOT GET THE COURSE OR LOCATION THAT YOU WANT!!
How to Register??
Many of you are now starting to receive notifications that you are being accepted to UBC. Here’s some answers to some questions you may have at this time:
“I was offered conditional admission to UBC! What does that mean?”
Please refer to the UBC website for information on how to keep their offer of admission.
Many of you have applied to live in residence when you filled out your UBC application. But if you haven’t, it’s not too late. All students can still apply for housing online until May 1. You have until June 2 to accept your UBC offer of admission and keep your housing guarantee.
The best way for all of you to see UBC for yourselfs and to visit!
All students who have received offers of admission from UBC are invited to UBC’s Okanagan or Vancouver campuses for Destination UBC in May. The deadline to register for travel reimbursement is April 29. Space is limited and we don’t want to anyone to miss out.
Online registration for Summer School Courses is up and ready to go on our Burnaby Online Website: http://www.online.sd41.bc.ca/Registration.aspx
On Step 1 of the online registration process, students wanting to take a summer course should make sure they choose “Summer session courses” as the Registration Type.
Courses will run July 2 – August 7, 2015.
Unlike our regular courses that are self paced, our summer courses have strict due dates for assignments/tests. Students can, and do, work ahead, if they wish.
Registration for summer courses closes on June 19, 2015. This is to allow our office staff a week to process the hundreds of registrations that come in right before the deadline (of course, the majority of the students wait until last minute to register). Under no circumstances, will a student be allowed to enroll in a summer course once the course has started
The Following Courses are being offered for Summer School Completion this year:
Each student registering for summer courses must complete and submit the First Assignment for the course
On the morning of June 27, students will be enrolled into their course and access to the course materials will be made available. Students will then receive a message letting them know who their teacher is, that the course has been opened and that they may begin working. Please note that students will not be able to access the course or course materials until the June 27 start date.
Students are required to attend an orientation session. Orientation sessions will be taking place at each of the Burnaby Secondary Schools in June, probably after most exams are completed. The dates are yet to be determined. A message will be sent out with the orientation dates once we have them confimed. Students can attend the orientation at any of the schools
