Important information

Feb. 1 is the equal consideration date for applying to highly competitive programs. Apply on or before this date in order to receive equal consideration for admission to programs starting the following fall and winter. After this date, we will consider applicants on a first-come, first-served basis until programs are full.

1 An Ontario driver’s licence (G2) is required for admission to the Paramedic program.

The grade cut off is generally higher than the minimum grades required and this cut off grade changes from intake to intake.

*Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to a program. If the number of qualified applications exceeds the number of seats for a program, applicants may be required to have grades/averages above the minimum.

**Practical Nursing (PNRS) is only highly competitive for the fall intake at the Barrie Campus.
