Changes to the Technology Programs Aptitude Test (TPAT) Re-Write Policy
As of the Fall 2023 intake, applicants who fail the TPAT will no longer be offered the option to re-write the test.

Applicants who apply to two ICT programs in the same application will only be allowed to write the test one time only.
If an applicant does not score a passing grade, their application will be deemed ineligible. Applicants may submit a new application to the same, or a different, ICT program in the future and will need to rewrite the test as part of their new application. There is no limit to the frequently or number of times the TPAT may be attempted. Please see the TPAT Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Changes to Available Program Sections/Times
Two additional program sections are now visible in the online application; Day – Morning and Day – Afternoon. Programs are now listed by the section they are offered in – Day – Morning, Day – Afternoon, Day and Evening. These sections are defined as follows:

- Day - Afternoon: Program starts at or after 11am and ends by 7pm
- Day: Program spans morning and afternoon (i.e. 'Full day')

A tuition and fee estimate can be found on the letter of acceptance. Visit Tuition and Fees webpage for program/intake specific tuition and fees.
Reminder Re: Deferral Limits
Throughout the pandemic MITT has been flexible in the number of deferrals allowed for admitted students. The deferral policy will now return to its original state. As a reminder, admitted students are allowed a maximum of one deferral per admission. The deferral must be requested in writing to email@example.com at least 30 days prior to the start of the program to be considered.
Reminder Re: Program/Intake/Section Changes
Once submitted, an application may not be transferred between programs or program sections (i.e. day to evening), or moved to a future intake. Please ensure that you are applying to the correct program, intake and section prior to submitting your application.
Applicants wishing to change the program, section or intake for which they applied must cancel their current application, submit a new application, and pay a new, non-refundable, application fee.
Fall 2022 Program and Admission Changes
Update to Number of Allowed Applications Per Applicant
Effective Fall 2022 onwards, applicants are allowed one active application with MITT at any given point in time with up to two post-secondary program selections. If applying to two post-secondary programs, both program selections must be made in the same application session. Once an application is submitted, a second program cannot be added to that application (even if only one program was initially selected). If you wish to be considered for two programs, you must select both programs prior to submitting your application.
To start a new application, all existing applications must be inactive (i.e. Inactive = All programs within that application must have a decision rendered of Ineligible, Withdrawn, or Offer Rescinded).
Once submitted, an application 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.
**International applicants who have previously submitted an application to MITT and are using the services of an educational agent to apply to a new program should thoroughly review MITT's Agent Change Policy prior to submitting any new applications.
Each program selected requires payment of the applicable application fees. All application fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
