How to Apply – Canadians and Permanent Residents
Important: Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations for current and future intakes. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions.
In light of this, MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.
Please review the following steps to help guide you through the application process.

Step 1: Before you apply
Choose your program
Visit our program listing page to find a program that is right for you.
Decide when you want to begin your studies
- Certificate, Post-Graduate and Diploma Programs: MITT offers multiple intakes throughout the year in Fall, Winter and Spring. Program availability varies by intake; please check current availability here.
- Apply Early! Many programs are very popular and fill up quickly. Take time to learn about the many programs we offer and carefully select a program that matches your abilities, interests, and future goals. Please ensure you review the entrance requirements for your program of choice, complete the application in full, and have all your official documents are ready.
Determine if you meet entrance requirements
General Entrance Requirements: Post-Secondary Certificate and Diploma Programs
The general admission requirement for all regular full-time certificate and diploma programs is high school graduation (or expected completion within 45 days of the program start date). Applicants may apply while still enrolled in high school as long as they are able to provide an interim transcript.
Applicants who have been educated outside of Canada should review the general requirements [PDF] based on country/curriculum of study.
Applicants who do not qualify under the general entrance requirements may be eligible for consideration under the mature student category. All post-secondary certificate and diploma programs at MITT will consider applicants for mature student admission as long as they meet the conditions associated with the mature student admission category. More information on the requirements for consideration as a mature student and how to apply can be found here [PDF].
IMPORTANT: Applicants with previous post-secondary studies must be in good academic standing at any previous post-secondary institutions.
General Entrance Requirements: Post-Graduate Programs
The general admission requirement for Post Graduate programs is an undergraduate diploma or degree from an accredited institution, with good academic standing (this includes MITT’s Post-Graduate Certificate in Business Management). A minimum of 2 years of full-time undergraduate level coursework may also be considered.
Program Specific Entrance Requirements
In addition to meeting the general admission requirements noted above, applicants must also meet the program specific admission requirements for the program they are applying to. Visit the appropriate program page for program specific admission requirements and minimum grade requirements.
Applicants still enrolled in high school can submit an interim transcript confirming enrolment and applicable interim grades in the required courses. Final transcripts must be provided at least 30 days prior to the program start showing that all admission requirements have been maintained/met.
English Language Proficiency Requirements
English Language Proficiency is required for all applicants whose primary language is not English.
- Applicants who have been educated outside of Canada may be required to prove English Language Proficiency.
- Applicants educated in an identified English Exempt Country are not required to prove English Language Proficiency.
Applicants who do not currently meet English Language Proficiency requirements can apply for additional English language training at MITT's English Language Institute (ELI) and may be eligible for conditional admission to a post-secondary program once enrolled in the ELI.
Please visit the English Language Proficiency page for program specific English Language proficiency requirements.
Additional Program Requirements
Please note that some programs have additional requirements needed to participate in the program or work practicum, graduate from the program or be employed in certain professional fields. These requirements do not impact admissibility, but may impact a student’s ability to continue in or successfully complete their program or to gain employment following graduation. It is recommended that applicants review these program specific requirements prior to applying.
Prepare supporting documents
The following documents are required for admission:
- Final official high school transcript, including proof of graduation (notarized copies are recommended). If you are still studying, please submit the most up-to-date transcript available.
- Still in high school? 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). Submit interim transcripts with your application (scan and hard copy). 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 official documents must be submitted as soon as studies have finished and must be received by MITT at least 30 days prior to the start of the program. Final admission is dependent on successful completion of all Grade 12 admission requirements.
- Final, official post-secondary transcripts and proof of post-secondary graduation (if applicable) (official or notarized copies)
- Still in post-secondary? Submit interim transcripts with your application. Final official documents must be submitted as soon as studies have finished and must be received by MITT at least 30 days prior to the start of the program.
- Proof of English Language Proficiency, if required.
- Other program specific supporting documents, if required
- Review program specific requirements. Some MITT programs require other documentation to be submitted, e.g. resume, Statement of Interest.
