Thread Collections on and resources about individual colleges and universities.

Please make this thread a sticky at the top. I found out the mother or father threads of individual college or university are "mixed" in the threads of topics so I want to create this thread as the springboard to each thread for each institution.

Under the title of each thread and the date of "last updated" are Tags. For examples, this particular thread use tags such as: "college search", "university program", "college to university", " university transfer", "program selection", "which university", "which college" and others. In their meanings, they function similarly to hashtags on twitter, those # the number symbol precedes. Clicking on one tag collects threads which also use that tag. Tags link threads by contents. Links below streamlines you to the topic of a post-secondary institute.

Considering searchable keywords and useful forum for your question takes time. If you have not in mind specific information about a college or university you are looking for, using tags is quicker. Moreover, I advise you to use tags to search if you are only looking for information to skim but not post. This method save time. Someone might have discussed your situation years ago, especially if yours evolves around affairs on students. You are likely to get a group of threads about the contents in the tags, on top of which the search option is also available. Search and advanced search on RFD and externally (google....) are the way to go for exhaustive results still.

Examples:
Searching the whole RFD and displaying posts.

Searching the Students forum and displaying posts.
Searching the Students forum and displaying threads.

There is a forum for discussion related to careers.

Also try Reddit.

A forum for course material sale is also available on RFD.

If you are looking for course specific information, look for tags with the course code(s). Please post, ask and talk away for a topic: readers are encouraged to start a new thread of a topic even though it was covered or talked about in past years.[/b] Here tags are still useful because new and old thread of similar topic can be grouped by tags. If you are posting course specific information, please enter the course code(s) as tags. More information posters provide, more information for readers. More readers, more questions and answers, more posters. So in either adding tags, course code(s), or starting a new thread, you are helping your schoolmates in reciprocity of getting help from them.

So without further adieu, the followings are the links, by alphabetical order:

Athabasca University
Brock University
Cambrian college

My advice is to attend college if the program you wish to take is a known strength or unique. Examples would be the chef school at George Brown, Paramedic at various colleges, Information Security Degree at Seneca/Sheridan, Art school at Seneca/Sheridan, Supply Chain Management at Humber, and many other programs.
I am posting Information only. Direct your question(s) to the original poster(s).

There are some schools where the Undergrad union is a member of CFS or CASA and the graduate union is a member of the other. I assume most people checking on this thread would be undergrads so the above lists are based on undergrad membership.
There was a lawsuit years ago launched by CASA trying to get CASA member schools out of paying for ISIC cards, I guess it hasn't worked yet if they are still paying......

Aaaaaron wrote: Yeah grades are the most important as far as I know. You can work for a couple years and the required GPA drops to 2.6 I think.
I graduated from a civil tech program this April and a few of my classmates got into Lakehead and UBC. It doesn't seem like it's competitive past their GPA requirement.
Aaaaaron wrote: I don't think you are better off to start over if you have completed a 2 or 3 year diploma. I would transfer to one of the universities that has an agreement with the one you graduated from. You would be lucky to get one year of university credit for your 2/3 year diploma at a school with no agreement. Plus like you said, your grades have to be good.
The tech diploma can be a okay alternative if you don't have the entrance requirements for a university engineering or college bridge program. It's also a good program to get into engineering and construction management. Maybe more so in Alberta, but the techs are an intergal part of a team. I know graduates of tech programs who have gone on to very successful careers.

You think saying "I am a college prof" somehow reveals my true identity? Are you an idiot or something? And yes, that was a rhetorical question.

Would the readers including prospective post-secondary students consider you only a knowledgeable person about university affairs or an insider?

A prospective student posting a question on this page instead of starting a new thread tells something about how the presentation of information influences the reader... They may think this thread offers a good opportunity to ask question because the thread was a sticky and insiders are reading posts in threads.

Thank you for reading my posts that caught your attention.

What identity that is needed to be revealed is catching your attention?
