Grade 12 students

Mature students
(19 years of age or older or 17 years of age and out of school at least one full academic year)
  • Submit your high school transcript
  • You may also be required to write University Assessments

3. Notice of acceptance

Once we have your application and your official transcripts (or Assessments & testing results), we will make a decision about your acceptance into the program. Depending on the time of year and volume of applications, admissions decisions are not always immediate, so please ensure that you provide all required documents as soon as possible.

Letters of acceptance, along with all future correspondence, will be emailed so please be sure that you have included an up-to-date email address with your application. 

4.  Registration

After you have received your Letter of Acceptance into the program, you still need to register for your courses. This does not happen automatically. You need to talk to a Program Advisor to choose your courses.
