New programmes at Columbia College
The college has received ministerial consent to run several new associate degree programmes beginning September 2014. Please see our websitewww.columbiacollege.ca for further programme details.
*Applicants must have minimum of an equivalent grade of C on any required course. We treat two semesters of a science in a polytechnic programme as equivalent to a Science 12.
Students with post-secondary qualifications & non-SPP applicants
We do not admit students under SPP who already have a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree, or have 10+2 or polytechnic completion earlier than 2012. Also, in keeping with CIC’s policy of discouraging non-SPP applications to SPP institutions, we can accept applications only from students who qualify to apply for their Study Permit under SPP. We cannot admit students who have already been refused a Canadian Study Permit.
Students applying for Winter 2015 and meeting the above deadline should please pay fees as soon as possible. We will send out a receipt and reissue Winter 2015 letters of acceptance, updating with fees paid, until November 28. After November 28, we will not re-issue Winter Semester letters of acceptance but will send a receipt only. This is to ensure that we are not issuing letters of acceptance dated after the High Commission’s recommended deadline for applications.
Two semesters’ fees due to register
Please remind your students that new international applicants to Columbia College are expected to make a two-semester tuition deposit of $11,760 (equivalent to 24 credits of UT coursework at $490/credit) plus the $200 document assessment fee. The total fee of $11,960 is due no later than the student’s first registration. If students have not paid the entire amount at first registration, commission (based on the two-semester amount students pay at first registration) will be delayed. It would very much help us if you would remind qualified applicants that they will receive a two-year acceptance and in return are expected to make a commitment of studying two semesters (eight months, or one F/T year) at Columbia College. Please also encourage applicants to read the student information letter, which explains this policy and gives other important information.
