Fill out an Ontario Colleges application by creating an account, paying the application fee, requesting transcripts if necessary, and adding all relevant educational and personal info to the form. Log back into the system to make any necessary changes or to confirm an offer of admission.
After creating an online account, begin by selecting one of the 27 public colleges in Ontario to which you wish to apply. The actual application consists of providing personal information, educational history, specific program choices and requesting transcripts. Ontario high school students should ask their schools if transcripts have already been sent to the Ontario Colleges system. You can also request the transcripts from your previous school, but you may be charged a separate transcript request fee.
You must pay the application fee before the system sends applications to any colleges. As of 2015, this fee is $95, and you may apply for up to five different programs, although no more than three of these programs can be at the same college. Students can first apply for the following fall semester in October, while February 1 is the deadline for applying to any highly competitive programs. May 1 is the date by which colleges confirm offers of admission, and students must pay tuition by the middle of June.
