Post Secondary Updates
University of Alberta UPDATE:
When students apply to the U of A in the fall of their grade 12 year, they are evaluated using their available grade 11 and grade 12 final marks. However, if a student is not immediately admissible to their first choice program, they can submit new final marks* as they become available. With this new information we can reevaluate students for admission, and hopefully extend them an offer to their first choice program!
Students studying in a quarterly high school system can submit updated courses and final marks to the U of A for reevaluation during the month of January. Quarterly students from BC, AB, and ON will find the Course and Mark Update form automatically uploaded in their Launchpad portal, and quarterly students from other jurisdictions can request one at uab.ca/ask. Students not studying in a quarterly system will have the opportunity to submit updated courses and final marks to the U of A for reevaluation starting February 15, 2021.
Students can also attend our Updating Courses and Marks presentation that walks through the process of submitting updates to their applications, discusses what kind of information we need from students, and addresses frequently asked questions. It is followed by a live Q&A so students can get answers to any lingering questions. Registration is available at uab.ca/recruitmentevents
