The Following are General Guidelines for Admission Requirements for International Students

Admission requirements are requirements or qualifications that students must meet in order for them to demonstrate the potential to successfully complete a program at C.C.E.C. (e.g., high school diploma, proficiency in English). 

Each C.C.E.C. program/course is different and has its own subjective criteria based on the nature of the course. Students are encouraged to carefully read course admission criteria-related details before applying. Some programs may require specific regulatory admission requirements as set by the governing body. In that case, that policy will supersede any criteria as set by C.C.E.C. admission committee. The applicant is advised to read program details from the respective registration page and apply.

In general at C.C.E.C.:

Students enrolled in a C.C.E.C. program are required to meet or exceed the admission requirements set out as per below before they begin a program.

For US-based education applicants:

A Secondary School Diploma or equivalent is required or in some cases, a  High School Diploma with five Grade 12 academic subjects is required.  If applicable, the applicant must also meet program-specific requirements, since some programs have supplementary procedures for admission.

The applicant must have the following **minimum credentials/required documents for enrollment consideration.

    (Ref. Gov. Canada Directions Concerning ESL, FSL Courses)

Q- I have completed Secondary School (12 Years Schooling) in my home country and also have a Bachelor's or Master's degrees, Do I still need to send my Secondary School Certificate with admission application?

A- No, you don't need to... just submit your Bachelor or Master's degree with the admission application. But if you have completed a Secondary School Certificate and a one or more years diploma, then you will need to send your proof of secondary school completion along with diploma certificate for an initial admission assessment and if an ECA is required it will be mentioned on your offer for admission letter and you will be conditionally approved for admission allowing to submit ECA report at a later time or before the start of the program.

However, if you have an SSD or HSC from outside Canada and have completed any post-secondary diploma from a Canadian Institution, you may submit only the copy of diploma without SSD or HSD and Can-College may accept it without ECA or assessment.

 International students

For many countries, C.C.E.C. considers the same academic preparation that is required for college or university entrance in that country:
I.e successful graduation from an academic secondary school program or equivalent

**Meeting the minimum admission requirements and deadline dates is not a guarantee of admission in some courses. Only the most qualified candidates will be considered.
