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 book 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 you with guidance about college diploma programs which best meet 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

The Second Career program is a government program that is designed to help unemployed and under-employed workers upgrade their skills and training that they need to find jobs in high-demand sectors in Ontario. The Second Career program provides a grant 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. Visit our Second Careers page to find out more.
