To meet eligibility for most post-secondary programs, the admission requirements include an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (or equivalent) with courses from the College (C), University (U), University/College (U/C), or Open (O) preparation levels with Grade 12 English (C/U) Level. However, Confederation College does offer three programs only requiring the applicant to be 19 years of age or older: General Arts & Science Certficate, General Arts & Sciences Diploma and College Access. Many post-secondary programs require additional specific courses to meet eligibility. Applicants are encouraged to research their program choice for specific admission requirements.
