When there are more equally qualified applicants than spaces available in a given program, Georgian uses formal selection techniques to determine final selection in that program, in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code and Ministry policy. The selection criteria and techniques approved by the Ministry include academic requirements and performance, testing, information session participation, resumés, reports, portfolios, physical health and age requirements. These techniques may vary from program to program.
For programs requiring selection testing, a testing fee is required at the time of scheduling the test. This testing fee is non-refundable.
These programs have additional selection criteria:

Equipment and other program fees
The following programs require the purchase of specific equipment or tools, or the payment of other fees:
Flightlab (AVIA1002) introduces the practical aspects of flight from the cockpit of an aircraft thereby enhancing the theoretical portion of our three-year Aviation Management diploma program. The course consists of six hours of in-flight instruction in a four-seat aircraft (along with three other students and your pilot) as well as 2 hours of ground briefing.
Flightlab will run concurrently with Aviation Orientation (AVIA1000) in Semester 1. Aviation Orientation is the theory component of FLIGHTLAB. Upon completion of this course, students will have demonstrated the ability to:
- explain aircraft documentation and identify aircraft pre-flight procedures
- describe weather factors relating to flight safety procedures
- outline various air maneuvers and emergency procedures
- explain basic instrument navigation techniques
- associate weight and balance calculations with aircraft performance calculations
- explain VOR and ADF tracking
- verbally demonstrate aircraft handling procedures
Advanced Flightlab (AVIA2001) continues and enhances the principles introduced in Flightlab. It applies VFR navigation theory of the program through cross-country flight and reinforces navigation and navigation aid concepts from the cockpit of an aircraft. The course consists of 5 hours of in-flight instruction (along with three other students and your pilot) as well as 2 hours of ground briefing. Advanced Flightlab will run concurrently with Navigation and Navigation Aids (AVIA2002) in Semester 4. Navigation and Navigation Aids is the theory component of Advanced Flightlab. Upon completion of this course, students will have demonstrated the ability to:
- prepare VFR cross country flights
- participate in a VFR cross country flight
- participate in an IFR cross country flight
- explain the operation of instruments used in IFR navigation
After completing both FLIGHTLAB and Advanced FLIGHTLAB, students will have received a total 4.0 hours of ground training and 11 hours of in-flight training. The in-flight training in both courses will be with three other students, plus the pilot, in a four-seat aircraft. The combined 11 hours of in-flight training is designed to enhance training in a cockpit environment at a significantly reduced cost than that of a student obtaining this level of training privately.
The cost of FLIGHTLAB is $610 and includes flight and ground transportation. This cost is included in your total first-year fees which are due in June. The cost for Advanced FLIGHTLAB is estimated at $610 and will be due at the same time as your Semester 4 fees (due in March – price subject to change without notice).
If you currently have a PPL, Commercial Pilots Licence or have completed more than 22.5 hours of flight time toward your PPL, you may apply for an exemption from FLIGHTLAB and Advanced FLIGHTLAB. In addition, if you have passed the Transport Canada ground school test, you may apply for an exemption from Aviation Orientation. Exemptions will be granted on an individual basis. Please contact the Aviation Management Co-ordinator at 705.728.1968, ext 1419, for more details.
Transportation to the airport from the college is included in the FLIGHTLAB and Advanced FLIGHTLAB fees. There will be no weekend flying required unless weather conditions dictate a change in the established flight timetables.
Tool and uniform requirements for culinary labs
Students are required to wear approved uniforms in all culinary labs. This is to ensure that sanitation, safety and brand standards are met in the course delivery.
Culinary students are required to have their complete uniforms for the first week of classes, Week 1, in all practical labs.
Uniforms can be purchased online at www.clickauniform.com or by calling 1. 800.387.0641 (toll free) or 705.721.4313. You will see the detailed uniform requirement, sizing charts and payment methods. The uniform package will be shipped to your home. The package is sold as a kit to ensure competitive pricing from our suppliers.
If you live in the Barrie area, you may purchase uniforms at 21 Commerce Park Drive Unit D, Barrie.
Safety shoe requirements
Safety shoes are not included in uniform kits but are required for labs.
- Black shoes with slip-resistant soles
- The stitching in the shoes should be oil-resistant
- The shoes must be made of a material that will prevent puncture from a dropped knife
- The material must also be easily cleaned and sanitized and prevent the accumulation of soil that can support the growth of pathogens
- The shoes must have closed toes and provide arch support
There are many safety companies and manufacturers whose footwear meets these criteria for a reasonable cost. Please note that if you choose a clog-style shoe, it must be designed for the professional kitchen environment (Crocs are not acceptable).
The Culinary program tool kits are a course requirement for Culinary Management, Culinary Skills and Chef Training programs. Tool kits have been designed to work in accordance with program curriculum and are available for purchase through: http://www.CanadaCutlery.ca/georgian-college.html.

To be successful in the program, you are required to have a personal notebook computer (either PC or Mac architecture) prior to the start of the program that meets or exceeds the following hardware specifications:
- Intel 13 processor or AMD equivalent
- 4GB of memory
- 250GV hard drive
Additional operating systems, security tools and software used in the program will be provided to the student upon commencement of the program.
Estimated expenses for incoming students (fall 2014):
Students who already own photography gear equivalent to the equipment listed below will have lower up-
The Digital Photography and Imaging program at Georgian College has a fully equipped photo studio and computer labs for instructional use. We also offer photo quality printing at very low prices. However, students of the program are required to have a personal camera and certain related equipment that meet the following specifications:
Digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera
We recommend either Nikon or Canon if you are buying a new camera. An example of an acceptable Nikon camera would be the D5100 ($500). An example of an acceptable Canon camera would be the T3i ($500). There is great variation in the price of equipment. Generally you get what you pay for. Therefore, while the cheaper models (above) may seem tempting, they may not last as long or perform as well as a higher quality model. Similarly, it can be a good investment to upgrade to the next higher quality zoom lens (e.g., 18-85) at the time of purchase, since the typical lens that comes with a camera (e.g., 18-55) may have limits in terms of usage. Look for student pricing from camera stores and consider purchasing an extended warranty. If you already have a camera, it should be a DSLR model type with the ability to capture camera RAW files as well as video.
A good tripod is an essential tool in photography. Make sure to have a tripod with a pan and tilt or ball head. Do NOT get a tripod with a video head. Once again, a cheaper tripod may be tempting as a purchase but a more
expensive one that is solidly built will last a lifetime and may be the better choice in the long run. An example of an acceptable tripod would be the Manfrotto 055XPROB at $240 with an 804RC2 pan head $90 or 494RC2 Ball Head $100 .
We recommend that you use an external flash manufactured by the same maker as the camera to
ensure compatibility and the use of TTL flash. The Nikon SB700 ($400) and Canon 430 EXII ($390) are examples of external flashes. A less expensive flash unit from an aftermarket manufacturer may also suffice.
Additional studio equipment
A flash meter is required. The Sekonic Flash Meter L-378 ($400) is a good example. Another excellent meter that is often available used is the Sekonic L-358. Note that prices on used gear vary and that purchasing from a camera store where a warranty is given is HIGHLY recommended. In addition, you will need a Safe Sync to attach to the camera’s hot shoe ($90), which connects the camera to the studio flash by a sync cable.
Other items that you may want to acquire over time:
You may wish to purchase additional lenses as well as miscellaneous gear such as a camera bag, memory cards, extra camera batteries, a memory card reader, etc.
Computer and software requirements
Students are not required to have a personal computer and software in order to complete the program, however it is recommended and students find working easier if they have their own computers. Computer labs are available on campus for students.
We recommend that you obtain a monthly subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud for $20/month to be assured that you will have the most current software available. We strongly advise you to wait until you are registered before purchasing software since you may qualify for a substantial student discount on software.
In addition to the up-front costs outlined above, you will need to spend several hundred dollars per
semester on printing, depending on your assignments. In addition, textbooks are required for some courses and their cost will vary from semester to semester.

Georgian reserves the right to refuse payments made after the deadline if the program has filled.
How to pay your tuition and fees
In order to register for classes, your fees must be paid in full by the deadline or you must pay a non-refundable minimum deposit of $175 ($3,000 if you are an international student) of which $75 will be used as a deferral fee.
If you choose to pay the minimum deposit, you agree to pay the balance of your fees by the following dates:

In order to receive a refund of any fees or to have outstanding fees adjusted if the deferral option was chosen, you must withdraw in writing by the 10th day of classes. Check important dates for withdrawal deadlines.
Withdrawals must be in writing. You are not considered officially withdrawn if you simply do not attend class or if you verbally notify your teacher, registration staff, counsellors or college staff. Please refer to the FAQ What if I change my mind about attending?
T2202A: What is it?
Tuition and Education Credit Certificate (T2202A) forms are issued by Georgian College to students who have paid more than $100 in eligible fees for courses beginning and ending in a particular calendar year. To be eligible for an education tax credit, the full-time or part-time program of study must be at least three consecutive weeks and 12 hours per month.
A program is not considered a qualifying educational program if the student receives an allowance, benefit, grant or is reimbursed for expenses (not including scholarships, fellowships, bursaries or prizes for achievement, or certain benefits such as loans or financial assistance under certain government legislation).
How to get your T2202A
Official T2202 are available at sis.georgiancollege.ca by February 28 each year. Your T2202A will continue to be available for seven years. Forms are not automatically mailed to students.
To access your T2202A, you will need your student ID number and your PIN.
- Select Login to Banner
- Enter Student ID number and PIN
- Select Canadian Tax Form
- Select tax year
- Select T2202A Tax Credit Form
Two options will be available:
- View Data – this is not an official receipt and is for information purposes only
- Printable Form – make this selection only if you are ready to print the receipt
To print T2202A
- Select Printable Form, then click Submit (if you select Continue, this will mark your taxation record as printed – if not printed at this time, any subsequent receipts will be marked Duplicate)
- Select Continue
- Select Print on browser menu
The receipt will print on two pages:
- Page 1 – Tuition and Education Amount Certificate
- Page 2 – Designation for the transfer of an amount to spouse or common-law partner, parent, or grandparent
If you are the parent of a Georgian student, you will need to have your son/daughter access the T2202A and print it for you. Students must use the T2202A on their own tax return until the federal tax payable is reduced to 0, after which the student may then transfer the balance of the credit to another eligible party using the reverse side of the T2202A form, as per the Income Tax Act. Transferring the balance of the credit to another eligible party requires the student’s signature.
No access to a printer?
Students may email a print request to email@example.com. The request must include the student’s name, ID number, and the year being requested. Receipts will be mailed out by Canada Post as soon as possible, usually within seven business days. We are unable to make courier or pick-up arrangements.
The T2202A process used to determine the number of eligible months has been changed to reflect Canada Revenue Agency regulations. Part-time students only receive a month if the program involves a minimum of 12 hours and 3 consecutive weeks in courses per calendar month. When terms end part-way through a month, part-time students cannot achieve the required 12 hours and 3 consecutive weeks in that particular month. Since the minimum hours and weeks per month is not obtained, the month cannot be awarded.
Address on T2202A is incorrect?
You may submit the T2202A with your income tax even if the address is incorrect. We do, however, request that you update your address with us. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make changes to your address, telephone number, etc.
Which fees are not eligible?
Fees that are not eligible to claim include Student Association fees, Alumni fees, Athletic fees, textbooks, goods of lasting value that you keep.
Amount on the form doesn’t match amount paid for course?
The T2202A will reflect only eligible fees as per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines. Receipts issued in February will cover only terms or sessions attended during the prior calendar year. Amounts paid in November relating to the following winter semester will not be included until the next year.
Tuition and related fees paid for courses that extend beyond the calendar year-end will be pro-rated according to the period of course delivery pertaining to each calendar year. For example, if a course has an Oct. 1 start date and a March 31 end date, only 50 per cent of the tuition and related fees representing October through December period will be reflected in the current year’s T22002A. The remaining 50 per cent, representing January through March, will be reflected on the following year’s T2202A.
Applied degrees and work terms
According to Canada Revenue Agency, a student in an applied degree or work term is considered eligible for the education amount only during the months attending the educational institution. Therefore, students who are on their work terms are not eligible for the education amount during those months.
Students with questions regarding the number of months on their T2202A may contact us at email@example.com. Students with questions regarding the tuition and related fees amount may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please remember there is an official college policy and federal and provincial legislation regarding the release of student information which is intended to protect the student’s right to privacy and the confidentiality of his/her record.
The information provided here is not intended as taxation advice and should not be relied upon in the preparation of a taxation return. Further information regarding the use of the T2202A form should be obtained from a qualified tax consultant or Canada Revenue Agency.
