What are the academic requirements for post-secondary education?

All universities and most colleges require a secondary school diploma (or equivalent). You may be able to apply as a "mature student."

Universities and colleges set entrance requirements for their programs. This may be a secondary school diploma in general, or proof of courses in a specific subject.

University and college calendars are the best sources of information about programs and their entrance requirements. It also has information about student services, housing, tuition fees and other costs, scholarships, and more.

If you studied outside Canada, you need to have your academic documents evaluated before you can apply to a college or university. Each school has its own requirements. Visit the school's website or contact their Office of Admissions to find out their requirements and the process you should follow to have your credentials evaluated.
