Guidelines for Writing Your Letter of Intent
The letter of intent is your chance to introduce yourself. Please include the following:
- Why have you chosen to pursue studies at the college level?
- What are your interests? Include any professional, volunteer and/or community experience.
- How will Journeys help you to achieve your future goals and aspirations?
- Include any other relevant information you believe is important for us to consider in reviewing your application.
- Self-identification as an Indigenous person (Métis, Inuit, Nation or Band affiliation). No official status or documentation is required.
There is no specific format for the letter but you may consider the following guidelines:
- One page letter is generally appropriate
- Typed or clearly written
- Be specific
- Don’t leave any gaps unexplained. Try to address any questions you think the committee might have about your file, such as challenges you may have faced during your educational path.
Note If additional information is necessary, an admissions interview may be requested.
