Grade 12 Timeline

Selkirk Secondary Grade 12 Timeline 2021/22

September/October

  • Start a post secondary file with important information: PEN number; SIN; list of volunteer activities; update your resume; obtain current letters of reference (have this information readily available, to support scholarship and post secondary school applications).
  • Ensure your courses meet BC graduation requirements (80 credit minimum). 

Use Graduation Requirement planning form (online under Grad Zone), and see Mr. Pew if unsure.

  • Identify post secondary schools you may be interested in attending, and ensure that your courses meet their entrance requirements.
  • Continue to explore post secondary plans: visit Mr. Pew and Mr. McIndoe.
  • Review post secondary school application dates and deadlines. Apply where appropriate.
  • Research scholarship opportunities, and apply when appropriate:

See Grad Zone on the Selkirk website for more scholarship information.  Also, visit post secondary schools' financial aid webpage. Internal Selkirk scholarship applications will be available in April.

November

  • Meet with Mr. McIndoe to review & sign your TVR (Transcript Verification Report), sent to schools by the Ministry of Education to ensure graduation credits are in place.
  • Check for additional information that your post secondary school might require (essays, portfolios, reference letters, etc.)
  • Attend Grade 12 meetings to discuss important graduation information.
  • Complete the student transcript form:
