Ontario College Application Process for Domestic Students
In Ontario, domestic students apply to all colleges through OntarioColleges.ca, not directly to the colleges you’re interested in. This means that with one form, you can apply for up to five programs, and up to three of these can be at any one college.
You can watch our video below for a quick outline of the domestic application process. You'll find more detailed step-by-step instructions below.
Important update – Ontario Colleges’ Application Cycle for the Fall 2023 Intake.
Beginning with the 2023-24 College Application cycle, the earliest date that Ontario Colleges can release offers of admission to qualified applicants will be November 1, 2022.
Most programs at George Brown will be eligible for this early offer, depending on your date of application submission. May 1, 2023 will still be the deadline date to confirm an offer of admission for Fall 2023, and the payment deposit date will still be in mid-June, 2023.
This change does not affect the February 1, 2023 equal consideration date for highly competitive programs.
All qualified applications to highly competitive programs will be considered for available spaces equally until February 1, 2023. After this date, we will still consider applicants in sequence until programs are full.
Please see your specific program page to know if your program is in this category.
The application steps below are for domestic students only. International students should visit the application process for international students page.
To review, here are the steps in more detail:
Step 1 - Find a college program
Find the programs you want using our Program Finder tool. You can compare programs side by side using our Program Comparison feature.
Step 2 - Complete an online Ontario College application form

- All international documents must be evaluated by ICAS or WES.
We recommend a Comprehensive Assessment report. Please send the evaluated documents to OntarioColleges.ca, 60 Corporate Court, Guelph, ON, Canada, N1G 5J3.
- For high school applicants, grades will be transmitted electronically by your school.
Step 3 - Track your application status online

You will need your student ID and password.
Step 4 - Next steps - once your college application is complete
Once your application is complete, we will let you know:

- Whether you have received an offer for the program, and how to accept the offer.
