Admissions

To apply, visit Ontario Colleges or telephone 1-888-892-2228. If there are more qualified applicants than spaces available in a given program, selection of those to be offered admission shall be made based on specific academic requirements, grades, testing and other criteria as determined by the College, respecting the equal consideration date.

Highly Competitive Programs are programs that receive more applications than seats available in the program. Applications are ranked in order of priority according to highest academic achievement in the admission requirements published for the program. After the February 1st equal consideration date, applications are either wait-listed or accepted on a first come first serve basis in accordance with the admission requirements if there are remaining vacancies in the program. Highly competitive programs are indicated on the program page.

The cut off GPA (grade point average) for highly competitive programs is generally much higher than the minimum grades noted in the program admission requirements and this cut off grade changes from year to year depending on the pool of applicants received. As a result of the competitiveness of these programs, the college may use Grade 11 grades and/or first semester grades to make their offers of admission.
