The academic requirements for each program vary, so make sure you are aware of what is required prior to applying. Should there be a minimum grade requirement, it will be listed in the course requirements; however, we encourage you to aim as high as possible as those minimum requirements may change the more students apply. Also, some programs require supplemental material as part of the application. You may be required to provide a portfolio, audition, attend an interview, pass a competency test, provide a resume, or have related work experience.
HIGHER SECONDARY SCHOOL OR GRADE 12 CERTIFICATE
PERCENTILE REQUIREMENTS: ABOVE 50%
Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission to a program.
Applicants are ranked on their academics (including additional program requirements where applicable). Offers are released based on program competition and seat availably. Applicants must meet a minimum standard set by the college, which varies by program. This standard ensures that students have a chance of academic success while attending NewCastle College. Grade and/or course requirements are used in the selection processes for all programs.
If the applicant attended secondary school in another province or country, he or she must prove that his or her educational standing is equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Domestic applicants who have International transcripts must have them evaluated. For certificate, diploma, and degree programs we recommend a comprehensive evaluation. For postgraduate programs we recommend a general evaluation. The Admissions Office will accept evaluations from the International Credential Assessment Service of Canada (ICAS) or World Education Services (WES) Please note, WES does not do International high school course-by-course evaluations. This must be done through ICAS. Admissions applications and decisions are not deferrable. A new application must be submitted for each new academic and ranked with competition for the intake.
