Requirements for Canadian Students

Most programs require that you have an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent in order to be admitted. You may also need other courses or skills.

If you are 19 or older and do not have an OSSD, you may apply as a mature student. You will be tested and/or interviewed to see if you meet the program prerequisites.

For bachelor's degree programs offered in collaboration with Ryerson University, mature student status is 21 years of age and out of school full-time for two years.

You may be asked to complete questionnaires, provide portfolios, attend interviews and/or take part in testing or information sessions. The application processing fee is $95. The application fee is payable to OCAS. The preferential deadline for full-time diploma programs beginning in September is February 1.
