If an applicant does not meet general admission requirements, they may apply for an assessment of special circumstances through the Registrar. Applicants in this category include those with modified academic credits in their secondary studies or home study.
An assessment of special circumstances could include a review of all transcripts and documents, an interview and/or testing. There is an additional fee for testing.
An assessment of special circumstances may determine an applicant does not meet entrance requirements and therefore cannot be admitted. The application will not be considered. A student success advisor may advise whether upgrading or other training would prepare for future application.
Note: All applications with transcripts containing any high school courses with an M (modified), E (English as an additional language) or I (individualized) designation do not meet college eligibility for admission and may only proceed through an assessment of special circumstances.
Some students who are accepted as a result of an assessment may also be able to complete their Grade 12 after they are enrolled in college. This is possible because some college courses have been designated as dual credit courses (both high school and college credit).
