Note from Shauna:

Hi, all,

This conference -- taking place in Banff in May -- is about instability in the media, and since we in the journalism field know a lot about that these days, it sure would be great to have a couple of our Journalism students represented at this conference.

Note that undergraduate students are welcome to present, which is rare.

If you're interested on working on a proposal, please discuss it with one of your instructors (myself included) and we'd be glad to give you some feedback.

New app makes post-secondary planning easier

Friday, 13 March 2015 10:23

Students now have a new tool available to help plan post-secondary education and avoid problems transferring between institutions.

The new Transfer Alberta Mobile App makes it easier for students to get current and accurate information about courses or programs that can transfer for credit between participating Alberta post-secondary institutions, as well as high school upgrading and out-of-province course equivalencies.

Having readily available information on what courses and programs can transfer or course equivalencies exist, will help students better plan their post-secondary enrolment, saving them time, money and frustration.
