Diploma Information and Dates
Diploma exams can written five times a year: January, April, June, August, November.
Not all writing centres have sittings for April, August and November exams.
Please complete this form and update as necessary. This form is also linked in your diploma course.
Completion of this form does not automatically register you for your diploma exam. Your teacher must approve your registration for a diploma writing. You must have demonstrated successful learning in at least 50% of the course (except during the summer) on or before the diploma registration date to be considered for registration. Before a student can write a diploma they must have successfully completed the course work.
Please be advised if you decide last minute to register to write a diploma you may risk not receiving accomodations if you have not met the announced deadlines provided by your teacher. In addition if you self register at another site, the other school will have no evidence of those accomodations and the other site can not provide them.
The best strategy is to work with your teacher, finish the course, meet the deadlines, and priovide the signed paper work to apply for diplomas and accomodations so that all is in place for your writing time.
Palliser Beyond Borders staff will send you a confirmation of your registration. This will likely come as an email. Please ensure you are continually checking your Palliser email (@prs26.ca) for any correspondence between you and Palliser Beyond Borders staff member(s).
Please note: If this information changes (such as writing date or location), it is the STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to make the change and notify their teacher.
