Scholarships are available in three broad categories - school based, university/college based, and outside organization based. All Grade 12s are encouraged to check the RSS Counselling website and the bulletin board near the Counselling Centre for scholarship news and read the application criteria and apply by the published deadlines. Richmond Secondary School students must apply to be considered for Richmond Secondary School scholarships as well - the application form is available in the Counselling Centre as is due by April 7, 2017.

TVRs, PSI FORMS, and GRADUATION TRANSITIONS:
Grade 12s will check their Transcript Verification Report (TVR) carefully to be sure they have all the courses they need to graduate including Graduation Transitions (GT), and to confirm their achievement in each course. TVRs are distributed in the fall and spring. Students must also meet all the prerequisite course requirements of the post-secondary pathway they are interested in (e.g. Sciences at UBC, Arts at SFU, Math at UofT, Broadcasting at BCIT, etc.).
The Post Secondary Institutions (PSI) selections form will be completed to allow the Ministry to send school marks to the post secondary institutions grads choose. The PSI selections form will be completed online beginning in October by going to the Ministry's Student Secure Web (link is external)
Grads are encouraged to see their counsellor early in the year if they have any questions about their TVR or PSI forms or Grad Transitions.
POST SECONDARY INFORMATION and FAQs
Most Grade 12s & parents will have many questions about post-secondary options, application processes and deadlines and what to do next year and how to do it. Helpful places to begin:
Grade 12 Parent Info Night - October 6, 2016 at 7:00 PM in the Multipurpose Room.
Post Secondary Sessions - Grade 12s are urged to attend the many lunch and/or afterschool sessions with various post-secondary schools. (See the RSS school calendar on the website for dates and times) and the Canadian Universities Event (held at McMath) or the RSS Post-Secondary Fair after school on November 17.
Post-Secondary Institution Websites: Every institute, college and university in the world will have a website especially designed for potential incoming students - check these out regularly.
