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!
The University of Alberta offers a number of virtual events and tours. Check out this link to see the full list: uab.ca/recruitmentevents

The Scholastic Aptitude Test or SAT is a standardized examination that most American post-secondary institutions require as part of their admission process. There are 6 writing dates between now and June all requiring early registration. See Mrs. Boake or Mrs. Richardson for practice books. Students who are planning to attend university or college in the US should plan to write the SAT in the spring of grade 11 so their results are available in the fall of grade 12 when they begin the application process.
