Admission Policies

A number of policy changes have been approved, and are effective Fall 2018. Students applying for a program in Fall 2018 or forward should review these rules 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 2018-2019 Academic Year consists of Fall 2018, Winter 2019 and Spring 2019 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 submit a new application, and pay a new, non-refundable, application fee.


Official documents

Domestic and international applicants are required to provide final, official documents as a part of the application process. Until these are received, applications are considered incomplete and no offer of admission will be granted.

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. 

Documents deemed 'irreplaceable' will only be returned by request once an admissions decision has been made on an application as follows: 

  • Admitted
  • Not Admissible
  • Withdrawn from consideration (initiated by the student or by MITT)

Requests for documents to be returned will not be accepted prior to an admissions decision as stated above. 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.


'Early Admission' for students in Canada

There is a new admission category for students studying at a high school within Canada, called Early Admission. Student who apply by the Early Admission deadline (December 1) are eligible for early, conditional, admission using their final grade 11 transcript. A limited number of Early Admission seats are available. 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.

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.

Any request received less than 30 days from the start of the program will not be granted; if the student is unable to attend, they will be required to withdraw and re-apply.

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 only one. Any admission deposit already paid for an offer that has already been accepted is non-refundable*.

*In instances where and international applicant has received a study permit denial, deposits may be refundable. Please see our Refund Policy 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.
