New Brunswick post-secondary institutions Entrance Requirements for Grade 12 applicants.

Posted: April 27, 2020

Post-secondary Information for Grade 12 Students.
Personnel at the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development have communicated with four post-secondary institutions in New Brunswick and have gathered information to share with our Grade 12 students.
St. Thomas University Entrance Requirements for Grade 12 applicants, 2020-21
All students currently holding an active offer of admission will be eligible to begin their studies in September.
 If students currently hold an active offer of admission, we will consider the documents submitted to date as final and as meeting our offer conditions.
 These students will not need to submit a final high school transcript.
For new applicants, STU will be looking for students to offer a minimum of a 70% average.
 This average is calculated based on five courses: English 122 (or English 121) and four other Grade 12 level courses from our list of acceptable academic electives. If a student was registered to take English 12 (or any of the other four required courses) during the second semester, we will be using their final grade in the Grade 11 version of that course.
 For example, if a student was enrolled in English 122 during the second semester, we will be using their English 112 grade in our admission average calculation. In most cases, students offer enough Grade 12 courses from the first semester of their Grade 12 year, combined with any Grade 12 coursework that they completed in Grade 11, for us to make an admission decision.

For those attending post-secondary institutions, participation in the English 12 credit option is recommended if offered at the school and the student is able to complete. Post-secondary partners have indicated they will support flexibility or offer university prep/remediation courses for students to enter their programs who had ENR for English 12. It is recommended families reach out to other post-secondary institution admissions office to clarify requirements. If it is identified that a student needs an English 12 credit but cannot currently access it, please reach out to Joan MacMillan at to discuss options available.
Early Access to Post-secondary Credit
For students on track to graduate in June 2020 and have been accepted to attend STU, UNB and Mount A, they will be permitted to start university level courses towards their degree, during this current spring and summer session. This would be concurrent with their obligations to complete the public-school year as currently being offered under the continuity of learning plan and would require parental consent.
Once enrolled in these courses, students of the public education system would be obliged to abide by any policies or requirements of the university offering the course.
It is understood that the student will be responsible for any related fees, including tuition, and supporting technology.
Please reach out to your University for more details.
