Apply to Centennial College
If you are a Canadian citizen, visit Ontariocolleges.ca. There is a $95 application fee which allows you to apply for up to 5 programs. Are you applying for a program that begins in the fall? If so, you should apply before February 1 of the previous year. Any applications received after February 1 can still be considered, but it’ll be on a first come, first served basis.
If you're an International Student, please apply using the International Education Application Guide.
If you're applying through Second Career Strategy, contact the Employment Training Centre at 416-289-5123 or by email at email@example.com. Second Career Strategy is a funding initiative for those who have been laid off and need training. For more information, please visit the Second Career FAQ.
Send us your transcripts
If you're an Ontario high school student or graduate, tell your guidance counsellor that you have applied to college, and your school will forward your transcripts to Centennial College.
If you’re a college or university graduate, or graduated from a Canadian high school outside of Ontario, you need to request that your educational institute send the needed documents and transcripts to Ontariocolleges.ca.
If you graduated from a school outside of Canada, you need to submit transcripts and documents yourself. You also need to have the transcripts assessed by an independent credential assessment agency, such as World Education Services (WES) or International Credential Assessment Service (ICAS).
Visit Admission Requirements to learn how to submit your documents.
Wait for your offer of admission
Once all admission requirements have been met, we'll send you an offer of admission containing the next steps needed for you to enrol. For programs beginning in the fall, we begin sending offers of admission in February.
