Getting Started

Admission requirements vary by program, so the best way to learn about Admission Requirements for the program you are interested in is to set an appointment to meet one of our Education Consultants.
During this meeting, our team will discuss your career goals, to truly understand what you are looking for out of a career. From there, they can provide guidance to you about which college diploma program best meets your own personal goals.

High School Graduates

For students using their high school diploma or GED to apply for a program, they must submit either an original copy of their high school diploma or an original copy of their high school transcript. This can be provided to the Admissions department to review. Some programs may require further entrance requirements like a general skills assessment.

College and University Graduates

Students may apply to programs using their previous education and may obtain some advanced standing for prior credits earned at other institutions.

Mature Student Applicants

If you have not completed high school, you may be eligible to apply to College as a Mature Student. In Ontario, a Mature student application can be made by someone who is over the age of 18 and has been out of school for more than one year and passes a general entrance assessment.

Second Career Applicants

“Second Career” is a government program that is designed to help unemployed and underemployed workers get job skills and training they need to find jobs in high-demand sectors in Ontario. The Second Career program is a grant provided on the basis of need. Applicants to the program may receive different amounts of funding and may need to contribute to their training and education.

Each participant can receive funding that can be used to help pay for tuition, travel, books and basic living allowance. Additional support may be available to those with disabilities, dependents, or academic upgrading.

Am I Eligible for Second Career?

Ontario has expanded access to the Second Career program. The new criteria allow more laid-off workers to participate in the program to take advantage of the training opportunities available.

  • Workers laid off as far back as January 1, 2005
  • If you are working part-time (less than 20 hrs per week), you may still be eligible to apply for funding from the government of Ontario
  • If you are on E.I., you may be eligible to apply for funding from the government of Ontario to go back to school and train for another career
  • If you were on E.I. in the last three years and your benefits have expired, you may be eligible to apply for funding from the government of Ontario.
  • If you were on maternity leave and for some satisfactory reason you were not able to return to your job, you may be eligible to apply for government funding from the Government of Ontario.
