Please read this page carefully before completing the application form.

1. Find a program that is a good fit for you.

  • Does it match your interests?
  • Are you on track to meet the prerequisites and co-requisites?
  • Do you have time when you factor in your other courses and extracurricular commitments?
  • Check the calendar - you are responsible to attend all on-campus classes, even when they fall on days your high school doesn't have class. 
  • Consider your commitment level - are you able to commit to the rigor of the post-secondary program, even when it's challenging?  Your final mark will appear on your high school transcript and on your permanent post-secondary transcript.  Withdrawals are only permitted in emergency situations such as major illness.
  • Students are required to follow all Covid protocols in place when attending classes on post-secondary campuses, which may include a requirement to show proof of vaccination.  This only applies to programs with an on-campus component.

2. Complete the online application form using the form above.

  • Fill it in yourself - your parent should not do it for you.
  • Your references should be adults not related to you.  One must be a teacher.
  • Follow the instructions to submit it on time.  Applications for semester 1 and full year courses are due November 19, 2021.

3.  Your application will be reviewed by the Off Campus Programs Committee.  Students will be selected based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to:

  • attendance record
  • marks
  • references
  • suitability for the program
  • overall schedule

4.  Some programs may require applicants to participate in a brief interview.

5.  You will receive notification whether or not you have been selected.

5.  If you have been selected:
