Once you have reached this blockade, please contact ATEP and USS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and let them know your full name, Universtiy ID (if applicable) and application number (if applicable).
They will need to bump you application to allow your payment method to be processed. Once that have been finalized you will be able to log into your profile and upload the required documents as follows:

If you are asked which campus you want to apply for you will need to answer ‘yes’ to the ATEP question and then select the Community-Based Elementary Program and Blue Quills as the Partner Institution.
If you are being asked for a campus prior to that, you can pick North/Main Campus and then proceed. The ATEP questions should come up after that when you select Faculty of Education. The above was created by Angela Wolfe, MEd in order to assist those interested in applying for the program and who may not have the application fee handy.
