Requirements

Admission Requirements

Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with the majority of Grade 11 and 12 courses at the C, U or M level including the following prerequisites:

  • Grade 12 English at the C or U level
  • Grade 11 Math at the C, U or M level

For OSSD equivalency options, see Admission Requirements.

Bonus Points

Full-time General Arts and Science students who achieve a GPA of 3.00 or better for at least one semester will receive an additional 10 percent in their admission assessment when applying to any post-secondary diploma program at St. Lawrence College. Applicants awarded the additional 10% must successfully complete the two-semester program, and be granted the respective certificate, with a minimum GPA of 3.0 or their admissibility for the program will be re-evaluated without the additional 10%; the offer of admission may be revoked if the applicant is no longer competitive. This will be particularly beneficial for programs that are highly competitive and therefore ranked.

If you are missing prerequisite courses, enroll in the Career/College Prep program - free for Ontario residents who are 19 years or older.
