Admission Procedures

A number of procedural changes have been approved, and are effective Fall 2019. Those wishing to apply for a program in Fall 2019 are asked to review these new procedures before applying. Changes include:

Application Limits

Applicants may apply to up to two (2) post-secondary programs within a given Academic Year.

e.g. The 2019-2020 Academic Year consists of Fall 2019, Winter 2020 and Spring 2020 programs.

Applicants who submit more than two applications will be required to identify the two that they wish to proceed with; this may delay the processing of applications. Application fees are non-refundable.

Application Transfers and Deferrals

Applications may not be transferred between programs, or deferred to a future intake.  Applicants wishing to change the program or intake for which they applied must cancel their current application, submit a new application, and pay a new, non-refundable, application fee.

Incomplete and Complete Applications

If the application form is not complete and/or you have uploaded incorrect documents, you will receive an email advising that your application will not be processed and you are invited to re-apply to a future intake.

Domestic and international applicants are required to provide final, official documents as a part of the application process. Final, official documents must be received by the 14th calendar day from the date the application is submitted. Until these documents are received, applications are considered incomplete and no offer of admission will be considered. If the deadline is not met, your application will be withdrawn and you may apply to a future intake. Providing the official documents are received by this deadline, the application will then be considered complete and will be moved forward for assessment.


If your program of choice is full, you will be placed on a waitlist until the start of the program. If a space does not become available by the start of the program you applied to, your application will be cancelled and you will need to re-apply to a future intake.

Official Documents

What is an official document?

  • Documents in English: Original or notarized copies only. Certified copies or copies stamped by Commissioner of Oaths are not considered official. Documents do not need to be sealed in an envelope by the issuing institution; however, they need to be in good condition, and all seals and stamps clearly visible.
  • Documents in another language: Original or notarized copies only, accompanied by a notarized or certified English translation (original or notated copy of the translation only accepted as well). Self-translations or translations done by an individual or company that is not certified is not acceptable. 

Requests for Return of Original/Official Documents

All documents submitted for admission become the property of MITT. Only documents deemed to be 'irreplaceable' by the institution will be returned to students.

Examples of commonly received documents that are deemed ‘replaceable’ and will not be returned include:

  • All English proficiency score reports (IELTS, TOEFL, CanTEST etc.)
  • Any notarized documents
  • Most original post-secondary transcripts/graduation certificates
  • Most original secondary transcripts/graduation certificates
  • Translations of original documents (unless permanently affixed to an original document which is deemed to be irreplaceable)
  • Photocopies of passports, study permits, etc.
  • Any unofficial documents

Documents deemed 'irreplaceable' will only be returned by request once an admissions decision has been made on an application. Document return requests will not be accepted while applications are still in progress. 

Once an admissions decision has been made, requests for the return of documents should be sent to admissions@mitt.ca with your full name, program applied to, and student ID. Please allow 5-10 business days for a response to your request.

Current High School Students - Conditional Admission

Students who are currently studying in their final year of high school may be eligible for early, conditional admission using their most recent high school transcript (final Grade 11 transcript or interim Grade 12 transcript).  The most recent transcript must show the required senior level academic courses with current (or predicted) grades that satisfy the admission requirements of the program applied to.  Final admission is dependent on successful completion of all Grade 12 admission requirements.

Study Permits

International students who have been admitted to a post-secondary program must provide proof of a valid study permit at least 30 days before the start of the program. If a valid study permit cannot be presented by this time, admission can be deferred to the next available intake by making a formal request to admissions@mitt.ca prior to the deadline. 

Note: A student whose admission is deferred to an intake where the program admission requirements have changed will be subject to the new requirements. Any request received less than 30 days from the start of the program will not be granted; if a student is unable to attend, they will be required to withdraw and re-apply.

Admission Deferrals

An admitted student (who has accepted an Offer of Admission and has paid an admission deposit) may defer their admission up to 30 days before the start of the program; admission will be deferred one time only, to the next available intake, and no new admission deposit will be required.

Note: A student who defers their admission to an intake where the program admission requirements have changed will be subject to the new requirements.

Admission Limits

Where an applicant gains admission to more than one post-secondary program in the same Academic Year, they will be required to choose one program and their other application will be cancelled. Any admission deposit already paid for an offer that has already been accepted is non-refundable*.

*In instances where an international applicant has received a study permit denial, deposits may be refundable. Please see our Refund Schedule (effective as of Fall 2019) for more information.

Credit Transfer

Credit Transfer will only be considered for a student who has been admitted to a program, i.e. a student who has accepted an Offer of Admission and has paid an admission deposit. Credit Transfer must be requested using the appropriate form 30 days before the start of the program. Students interested in requesting Credit Transfer are expected to read the Credit Transfer Policy.
