Start Your Application

For the best chance at admission, begin on October 1 of your Grade 12 year using your final Grade 11 marks and any available Grade 12 marks. Report all completed and ongoing Grade 11 and 12 courses, as well as those you plan to take. You can also apply for residence directly on your application.
