They’re asking for my marks, what should I provide?
Most post-secondary institution will ask you to submit mid-term or final marks for required courses. Early in the process you can provide them with your most recent report card marks for mid-term marks, provide them with information on courses you are taking in semester II and provide them with any marks for completed required courses (available from student services). Unofficial transcripts or DAR’s (Detailed academic reports) can be downloaded from myPass or requested from student services. Most post-secondary institutions do not require official transcripts until later on, but if needed you can order official transcripts through myPass. In the meantime, keep the post-secondary up-to-date on your information: send updated DAR’s at the end of semester 1, provide a letter with any updated plans, address changes, new e-mails, and don’t be afraid to call them with questions. They will not think any less of you; there are several folks at colleges and universities whose job it is to answer your questions and to provide you, their future student, with supports.
I have no idea what I want to do next year, what should I do?
This is a tough question that requires careful consideration. Best advice; talk to your parents, friends, teachers, and, of course, your friendly neighborhood guidance counselors. Best place to start, ask yourself: "What do I really love doing" and go from there . . . A great on-line resource to help you with this is www.alis.alberta.ca and click on career insite.
