#1 - June 6th remains the day to have work in and exams done for courses in order to guarantee your marks make the school year-end report card at the end of the month. For those who are looking to graduate for the July window, this will be the cutoff date.
#2 - Students who have taken their classes for less than 12 months, have made significant and consistent progress, and would like more time there is the option to connect with their teacher by email and arrange for an extension. Please be mindful of how busy it is for our teachers right now. I would suggest contacting them for this request immediately. This would allow the student to continue into the summer. At 12 months a course will be dropped.
#3 - Book those exams fast! It's really busy right now in the testing rooms. Every day is "selling out" so to speak. Book yours early here: http://vlns.ca/courses/book-an-exam.
#4 - If you're sending marks to post-secondary institutions make sure you filled out the PSI report. That allows universities to get your FINAL grades once they're uploaded. This uses the same form as the PSI process, but will be used for final marks. The cutoff for that is the end of June. Link here: https://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/exams/tsw/tsw/student/
#5 - The Adult Grad fee DATE will be changing in September. This school year there was no charge if you were graduated and born after July 1st, 1996. Starting September, any class you're actively enrolled in (INCLUDING ones you're taking NOW), will use the July 1st, 1997 date so get your education while you can! :)
#6 - If you were thinking of adding another course we've got spring/summer versions that are designed to get people moving faster through them up at VLNS.ca right now for all of our most popular courses. They'll be the ones most actively monitored and marked by teachers during July and August.
