Grade 11 students can apply by submitting their current grade 11 transcripts on or after the first business day in April.

It is important that your transcript of marks demonstrates how you meet, or are in the process of meeting, the program's admission requirements (for each program, please refer to the "Admission Requirements" section to determine which profile applies).

* International applicants must also include an official transcript translated into English from the High School and/or College and/or University you have attended.

Special Considerations

Applications are processed year-round by the College Admissions Service.

Acceptances are processed by the College Admissions Service once the admission cycle for the current academic year is complete.  For example, for programs starting in September, admission closes three weeks after the start of classes. Following the closing date for admissions, we start processing for the next academic year.

In some cases, you'll have other considerations during the application process depending on your circumstances. See below to learn more.
