So you want to attend Canadore? 

Here's what you need to know!

Step One

Determine what program(s) you are interested in. In general, Canadore requires a senior level of education from your country. View our program listing here

Step Two

Many programs have specific admission requirements, such as math or physics. These requirements are found in the program descriptions. To be considered for acceptance by the college, you must send a translated copy of your transcript with your application, showing that you have the program specific admission requirements.

Step Three

If English is not your first language you must provide proof of English competency. You must have a minimum overall band score of 5.5 on the Academic International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or equivalent accepted English language proficiency test to be admitted to a postsecondary program at the college. Notwithstanding the above, the English proficiency standards required to obtain Study Permits and Temporary Resident Visas from Canadian Embassies vary around the world. The higher English language proficiency standard will apply.

The Student Direct Stream (SDS) is an expedited study permit processing program for those who are applying to study in Canada at a post-secondary designated learning institution (DLI). The language requirement is more stringent than listed above, as such an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher in each language skill: listening, reading, writing and speaking is required.

For more information on the Student Direct Stream (SDS) program please see:

Step Four

Please email, in one single PDF, the completed International Student Application Form along with certified copies of your passport, certificates, diplomas, transcripts and TOEFL or IELTS scores to

Step Five

When you are accepted into the program you have chosen, Canadore College will send you a letter of acceptance and an International Student Acceptance Information form in a format recognized by Canadian Immigration. This letter is required by the Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate in your country when you apply for a study permit to study in Canada.

Step Six

Upon receipt of your deposit the College will reserve a seat in your chosen program. The tuition deposit is part of the total tuition cost. The receipt for this deposit will be required by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

If you want to study in Canada, you must meet some important immigration requirements. You may require both a Study Permit and a Temporary Visitor Visa (TRV). Study Permit is issued by an Immigration Officer. It allows you to come to or remain in Canada to take:

  • An English as a Second Language Program of more than three months;
  • An academic, professional or vocational training program at an approved college, university or other institution.

Study Permits and Temporary Visitor Visas are not issued from within Canada. You must apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) which is located in your nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. Citizenship and Immigration Canada is a Canadian government department and operates independently with no connections to any Canadian educational institution. Official information on requirements for a student authorization may be obtained from a CIC office in Canada, a Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate, and/or on their website at

In order to qualify for a Study Permit, you must first receive a letter of acceptance and an International Student Acceptance Information form from the College. After you have been accepted for a course of study, you must present this letter and form to the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate to complete your application for a Study Permit and a Temporary Visitor Visa. An officer there will tell you how to proceed and the documents required, such as:

  • Acceptance letter and acceptance information form from Canadore College
  • Receipt from the college for your confirming deposit
  • Evidence of your good character and, if applicable, a letter from your sponsor
  • Evidence of adequate funds to live and study in Canada for the duration of your program, including return transportation
  • Certificate of medical clearance
  • Your valid passport

Refunds for Students Paying International Fees to Full-time Programs of Instruction

International Students who submit formal written notification of withdrawal from a full-time program of instruction are entitled to a refund of tuition and ancillary fees as follows:

  • Student Visa refusal with proof from Embassy or High Commission, $300 administrative charge applied and balance refunded
  • Student Visa refusal with no proof or withdrawing before 10 days into classes, refund will be based on the following formula: Refund = fees paid – ((International Student Tuition Fee ÷ Tuition Fee for Canadian Students x $500)
  • International students who do not submit an original refusal letter within 60 calendar days following your offered program start date, do not attend, decide to defer their admission or withdraw within 10 business days of the beginning of the semester, shall receive a refund or a portion of the full tuition and ancillary fees paid for the semester or program period as calculated according to the following equation: Refund = fees paid – ((International Student Tuition Fee ÷ Tuition Fee for Canadian Students x $500)
  • After 10 business days, International Students shall receive a refund in full of any tuition and ancillary fees paid in advance for subsequent semesters.
  • All refunds sent by WUBS or wire are subject to a $35 admin fee
