All applications are processed through ontariocolleges.ca, but admission decisions are made by the respective college. You may submit only one application form.
When filling out your application form, you must include the college codes and program codes on the application form. These codes are listed in the Ontario College Guide and on the ontariocolleges.ca website. Cambrian’s program codes are also included with each program in our printed Academic Viewbook and on our website.
Note: Applications to Cambrian’s English as a Second Language and Upgrading programs do not go through ontariocolleges.ca. Students apply directly to Cambrian College for these two programs.
There is a $95 non-refundable application fee for five program choices, with no more than three program choices at any one college.

To be considered on an equal basis, your application must be received at ontariocolleges.ca no later than February 1.
