Early Entrance Awards for Grade 12 Students - Entering UNBC September 2017
Students who are currently in their Grade 12 year should apply for admission to UNBC at this time.  When applying for admission students will be asked to self-declare the grades they think they will achieve in their grade 12 courses.  It is important to carefully consider the self-declared grades as they will be used both for UNBC admission purposes and award purposes. 

Students who apply for admission prior to December 15th and who receive a provisional offer of admission (meaning the offer is subject to official final grades for their Grade 12 courses being received by UNBC) prior to December 15th can be considered for Early Entrance Awards.  Two of which (the Raven Scholarship & UNBC Merit Award) students in this situation are automatically considered for; and two others (President's Silver Anniversary Awards for Excellence in Leadership and the UNBC Leadership Award) require an online awards application and supporting documents to be received by the December 15th deadline.

NOTE:  If high school students miss the December 15th Early Entrance Admission & Awards Deadline they are still able to apply for admission to UNBC and be considered for other categories of awards (Entrance Awards & General Awards) up until March 1st, 2017.  Students who have applied for Early Entrance Awards can also apply for and be considered for other categories of awards (Entrance Awards & General Awards) up until March 1st, 2017.
