Graduation from a high school or a reputable home schooling program is necessary. High school transcripts are required.
1. To enter any program, you must have a personal relationship with God through his son, Jesus Christ.
2. To enter the English Language Institute, you must have completed high/secondary school and demonstrate a basic level of English proficiency. A commitment to our community living standard is required.
3. To enter the College, you must have completed high/secondary school, met university or college entrance requirements, and demonstrate a high level of English proficiency.
4. To enter the Seminary or graduate school, you must possess a bachelor’s degree from an acceptable college/university and demonstrate a high level of English proficiency.
You must obtain a study permit. You will need an acceptance letter from Providence College and Seminary, an acceptable medical report, and proof of sufficient finances. It takes from 3 weeks to 4 months to get a study permit depending on the country from which you are applying. If you are coming for Intensive English for 6 months or less, you may only need a visitor’s visa. In addition, if your home country is on the list at Citizenship and Immigration's Web site (www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/visas.html), you will need a Temporary Resident Visa to enter Canada.
