International Education Guide to Completing the International Student Application Form

revised April 2018

The purpose of this guide is to provide a step-by-step walk through of how to complete the online application form for international students. This guide uses screen shots of the actual application form with notations to complete the form accurately and completely. In addition, this guide includes additional suggestions and recommendations.

Getting Started

Click on “Apply Now” under the International Heading

Apply Now

Creating Your Login ID and PIN

Each application must have a unique Login ID. To create a new application select “First time user account creation.” If you use the same ID for different students, you won’t be able to re-apply and alter applications using that ID. Once an account has been created, you can log in under that account again to submit another application for that student or edit information.

Do not use ALL CAPS. Using all caps will delay the processing of the application as they will need to be re-entered.  

Be prepared to make payment when you have completed the application form. The form will not be considered complete until payment has been made.

Select the appropriate application from the Application Type drop down menu.

To apply as an International Student to:

  • a certificate or diploma, select application type International Admission.

Personal Information

Planned Course of Study


Programs currently available will be listed in the drop-down menu. If the program is not offered as a selection, this means that:

  • The program is not available to international students or;
  • The program is filled to capacity and applications are not currently being accepted for that program. 

The availability of programs will vary throughout the year as we admit students and students withdraw (lack of funds, denial of visa, etc.)  

If you are offered a seat, your application is closed. Should you want to switch programs after an offer has been made, you can submit (and pay for) another application.

High School

Previous College

If you have previous post-secondary education, it is to your advantage to include this information when applying. Our assessors look to these transcripts if an application is lacking at the high school level. (For example, you don't have a math in grade 12 but do in post-secondary).

In addition, if you plan to apply for transfer credit, Registration Services will only consider education declared at the point of application for transfer credit.

Students applying for a post-grad certificate or degree must provide information on your degree here.

Include these transcripts with the other documents.
