Planning for Post-Secondary?

By Kwantlen Polytechnic University Modified on November 06, 2017

Start early for a successful post-secondary application


It might seem like school just started, but for many high school students it’s already time to start thinking about what to do when high school ends and post-secondary begins. The key to a successful post-secondary application is to stay organized and plan ahead.

It’s important to find out what programs and courses are available that align with your educational and career goals. KPU has a broad range of programs and courses in a variety of subjects and disciplines, from arts, business, and design, to health, science and horticulture, and trades and technology. Many programs are open intake, meaning there is no limit to how many students may be admitted in each application cycle, while select limited intake programs have a maximum number of seats available per cycle. Limited intake programs may also have additional requirements for application like an interview or portfolio review. Knowing what the requirements for your program of interest are, and how to submit your documents, can expedite your application.

If you’re interested in KPU, applications are already open for Fall 2018! When you apply online, be sure to review your student self-service account and KPU student email regularly for updates and check for any outstanding items in your application. Your application must be complete before it can be processed.
