Your Questions Answered | St. Clair College
Can I still apply for a program after the May 1st deadline?

Yes! As long as space remains in the program, you may apply for it. However, after May 1st, it’s first come, first serve so don’t delay, apply today. Popular programs fill up quickly.


What does it mean if I have been placed on a waitlist for a program I applied for?

You may be waitlisted for a program if there are more acceptable candidates than available seats. If any of the accepted applicants decline the offer of admission or fail to register, you may be called from the waitlist. The waitlist is for the term to which you applied; it is not carried over from one term or one application year to another. The Registrar’s Office will provide an applicant with their position on the waitlist should they inquire.


My Offer of Admission is Conditional, what does that mean?

An offer is made conditionally to students currently attending secondary school or currently enrolled in one or more admission requirements when applying.

If you are a student with a conditional acceptance to a limited-enrolment program, you will need to keep your grades above the minimum required average in certain courses or programs to finalize the acceptance. Applicants must satisfy all conditions prior to the first day of classes.

*Students with conditional offers still need to meet all confirmation or payment deadlines*
