Students from outside the province who wish to transfer to a public or private secondary school in Ontario have the option to submit their academic documents (such as transcripts, report cards, certificates, etc.) to BrightMinds Online School for PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition). The fee for PLAR is $70. In this first step, BrightMinds guidance office will determine how many equivalent courses (EQV) can be granted to student and what courses will remain should the student decide to pursue the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or the Ontario Secondary School Certificate (OSSC). An additional fee of $80 applies for the EQV courses to be transferred to an Ontario Student Transcript (OST).
