Yes. We will make decisions based on first-semester mid-term marks for applicants who have met academic requirements and academic strength. Any offers sent out based on mid-term marks would be conditional upon successful completion of the course and the final mark.
No. Conestoga College will not generate offers based solely on grade 11 marks. If the admission requirement is a Grade 12 subject, the College must have, at a minimum, confirmation of enrolment in the required subject. Where the minimum subject requirement is Grade 12, Grade 11 marks in required subjects may be used in the calculation of academic strength for those applicants currently enrolled in the required subjects. In such cases, any offers of admission would be conditional upon the successful completion of the required Grade 12 course and the final grade in that course. In the case of oversubscribed programs, many of these programs are full after the first round of admission decisions is made. This means that admission decisions are based on the marks available in early February. This may be a combination of final grades in required courses, mid-term grades in required courses, or marks from relevant Grade 11 courses. If the program is full prior to the College receiving second semester mid-term grades, we will NOT re-calculate the academic strength based on the second semester grades. However, we will use available second semester grades to determine the position on the wait list of applicants who have received a wait list offer.
Yes. Effective fall 2021, Ontario Colleges can start sending offers of admission on November 1 to applicants who have met the admissions requirements for their program. Some programs, including oversubscribed programs, will not send offers until after the equal consideration date (February 1) and all supplemental information or attendance at mandatory information sessions have been completed. Therefore, depending on the program, offers could be received as early as November 1, or after February 1. Offers are not sent until the Admissions Office receives official transcripts and is able to make an admission decision.
Yes. Applicants must confirm their acceptance by May 1, unless the offer is extended after this date.
Yes. Applications are accepted after February 1 in most programs. While some programs fill up quickly (oversubscribed programs), many programs remain available up to the start of classes. Applicants are always encouraged to apply early and to visit www.ontariocolleges.ca to view the program offerings and their status.
Yes. Most oversubscribed programs do not accept applications later than February 1. You are encouraged to submit your application early in order to avoid missing the deadline.
