2019 - IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM STUDENT SERVICES

To do list for students attending university/college in September: 

  1. Make sure your university or college email is activated as staff from those institutions will only communicate with you on that email.  This is extremely important as all of your financial information, course/registration information (adding, dropping courses, wait list, etc.) residence and events at school will be communicated to you on that email account.
  2. Registration of classes – this process has begun at some universities so make sure you do this as soon as it opens.  Classes and labs fill up very quickly so it is important to do this when registration opens.
  3. Residence and meal plans – make sure you have applied to residence and pay your deposit by the deadline date.
  4. Keep in contact with your university recruiter if you have any questions regarding the above information.

Financing University/College:

 Student Loans:

A representative from Student Financial Services will be here on Tuesday, April 30th at 6:00 pm for a student loan presentation.  This is a great opportunity to learn about how and when to apply for these loans, so we recommend attending this session.

George Coles Bursary, Island Student Award, Island Skills Award and Island Advantage Bursary:

These Provincial grants are available to all eligible students who attend UPEI, Holland College and Collège de l’île.  These institutions require your Social Insurance Number which was asked of you on your application.  If you did not enter your Social Insurance Number please contact the institution.  See Attachment.

Community Service Bursary:

A list of students who have registered for the Community Service Bursary will be posted in Student Services on Wednesday, May 1st, 2019. Please check with Elizabeth to see that your name is on this list and that all forms are completed.  If your name is not on the list, you must call the organization that you have volunteered with to be sure that they have forwarded your information. To confirm if all your documentation has been completed contact Barry Gosby at (902) 368-4640.  It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all documentation has been submitted to the Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning.

 Scholarships and Bursaries:

Please inform the School Counsellors of any scholarships, bursaries or awards that you accepted this year.  We must receive a photocopy of the accepted scholarship offer no later than Wednesday, June 5th, in order to be recognized at the graduation ceremony.

Continue to drop in to Student Services or go to Student Services webpage at: https://bluefieldhigh.ca/students/student-services-blog/scholarships/.  There are still many scholarships, bursaries and awards available.

Reminder to check your emails as we will continue to send our bi-weekly emails until mid June.

Transcripts:

Please let Elizabeth, in Student Services, know where you want your final transcript sent.  The school will only be sending your transcript to one university or college so clarification from you is essential! Transcripts must be requested by Wednesday, June 5th, 2019.

Prizes and Awards:

Students are encouraged to apply for a number of special awards to be determined at the prize meeting in June. Each award has specific criteria and a separate application form.  The application forms will be available in Student Services on May 1st, 2019 and students that are applying need to complete and hand them in to Student Services on or before Wednesday, May 29th, 2019.

 “Thank You Letters” for Graduation Prizes, Awards and Bursaries:

Summer School:

Summer School information comes from the Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture.  We hope to receive information by early June.  Check Student Services or our website for details.

Still thinking about options for September, 2019

If you are still unsure of what you want to do next year or if you would like to continue with post secondary education but you do not feel you meet the grade requirements for admission, please see either Ms. Gillan or Ms. Auld as there may still be opportunities available such as the Transitions Program at UPEI or Adult Education at Holland College.
