October 23, 2017 - Representatives from Ontario's 21 universities will be in St.
Thomas at Arthur Voaden SS on Monday, November 6, 2017, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30
p.m., for the University Information Program (UIP).
This free event offers high school students from the surrounding area, and their
parents, the opportunity to speak in-person with multiple university representatives.
Any high school students in the area are welcome to attend, regardless of which
school board their school belongs to.
The UIP offers students who are considering an Ontario university the opportunity
to learn more about admission requirements, scholarships, residence, the application
process, campus life and much more. The event is designed to assist graduating high
school students in making an informed decision before they apply to university in
January 2018. The event also aims to help younger students with high school course
selections in order to guide them toward future university programs.
Students and their parents will have the opportunity to learn more about Ontario's
21 universities in either a fair- or presentation-style format, where they can visit
each Ontario university representative individually.
Students who are interested in attending are encouraged to confirm the UIP schedule
in their area with their guidance office.
The UIP is hosted exclusively by Ontario universities. Each university participates
in joint visits to high schools across the province each fall. Each UIP event is
organized by the University Information Program Working Group with oversite from
the Standing Committee on Student Recruitment, and the Ontario University Registrars'
