AARAO Expo: 

AARAO will be using the vFairs platform for this event. Students will be able to access the site on the day of the Expo to explore 50 post-secondary opportunities. Each booth will have representatives on this day allowing for live conversations. We encourage everyone to pre-register for the event here: To access the AARAO page on the vFairs platform, please visit:

After the Expo, each virtual information booth will remain accessible online for students etc. at any time between now and March 2022.  There is a second live expo day of Dec. 2, 2021 which will once again allow the opportunity for conversations with any representative a student may want to talk to.

Open Houses:

There are Open Houses (and Information Sessions) happening in the upcoming weeks at universities across Nova Scotia and beyond.

An Open House is an opportunity for prospective students to explore what a particular campus has to offer; you learn about programs, class sizes, have questions answered and meet faculty.

Some Open houses may be offered in person this year, others may be virtual.

Often at an Open House, you may be able to apply for early admissions and some schools will waive their application fee! So you can apply for free and make your decision later about which school you want to attend.

You usually have to sign up for these ahead of time. Please see the Information about Open Houses and Other Post Secondary Information Sessions listed below: 



  • CBU Open House: Saturday October 23rd. All students who register through will receive a confirmation email with a voucher code for a free application. The voucher code is CBUOPENHOUSE21. We are encouraging students to apply by noon on October 22 in order for us to process the applications ahead of the event. 

    We also know there have been questions from students about submitting their transcripts. As long as a student has provided their NS HS ID in the appropriate spot in the application, we will have access to their HS transcripts. There will be no need for students to request a paper copy or for the schools to send CBU transcripts for Open House. 

    CBU is committed to the safety of our campus and community, which is why we've moved to this pre-application process. This will eliminate the long lines and crowding in computer labs as students submit their applications that we've seen in the past. On-site applications will be available during the event, but we cannot guarantee processing on the day


     Additional details:

  • The free application link will be valid until November 12
  • Free application links will be sent the student's email within 24 hours after the session is complete
  • Each session will last approximately 45 minutes, and will have a live Q + A period at the end
  • We have attached digital sign graphics to help promote the event to your students
