Important Note Regarding Reference Letters!

We’re aware that the current work-to-rule situation in schools in Nova Scotia is affecting students’ ability to obtain reference letters that detail your academic performance or extra-curricular activity involvement. Please note that this will not affect entrance scholarships that traditionally require specific applications and reference letters (President’s Scholarship, Leadership Awards etc.). In order to ensure administrative fairness in the scholarship application review process, reference letters for either academic performance or extra-curricular activity involvement will not be assessed for students graduating from high school this year. If you have any questions regarding reference letters and scholarship applications, please do not hesitate to contact the Registrar’s Office at 902-457-6117. (updated January 17th, 2017)
