                                               ADMISSIONS INFORMATION
 Selection process   Applicants to limited enrolment programs must apply by the equal consideration date (February 1
 for                 or the first working day immediately following) – applications after that date will only be
 oversubscribed      considered on a chronological basis if space in the program remains.
 programs:           All applicants must meet the institutional and program requirements. The selection process uses
                     only the courses that are prerequisite subjects, and only uses final grades (no mid-terms except in
                     the case of non-semestered schools). As per Ministry requirements, we do not weight (C), (U), or
                     (M) level courses differently from one another. Cambrian requires that at least 50% of
                     prerequisite courses be completed in order to be considered for limited enrolment programs.
                     The deadline for submission of transcripts is usually ten business days after the equal
                     consideration date. After this deadline, applicants are ranked based on their performance in the
                     prerequisite subjects, and selection benchmarks are determined. The benchmarks are established
                     based on 3 factors: the number of spaces available in a program, the number of applicants for that
                     program, and the quality of applicants for that program. Students who meet and exceed the
                     selection benchmarks are granted an offer of admission; the next strongest candidates are
                     waitlisted based on their ranking; and finally unsuccessful applicants are notified, and provided
                     with an alternative offer of admission where appropriate.

 Selection process   Open enrolment programs (not oversubscribed) require that the applicant meet institutional requirements
 for non-            (OSSD or Mature Student status) and have met the specific program requirements. If these are met, offers
 oversubscribed      of admissions are made. Where any of the conditions are not yet met, conditional offers are made.
 Grade 11 marks:     Grade 11 marks are used only when the admission requirement calls for either Grade 11 or 12 marks. If the
                     requirement is Grade 12 Math, for example, we would not look at Grade 11 marks in the selection process.

Grade 11 marks:            Where the minimum subject requirement is grade 12, grade 11 marks in

Georgian College has more than 100 excellent programs taught in state-of-the-art facilities across seven campuses. Most of our
programs have a paid co-op internship integrated into the program. Earn while you learn at Georgian College! Georgian College has
talented faculty, caring staff and top marks in quality and student satisfaction, and has recently been named as one of Canada’s
Greenest Employers for 2010! We offer endless possibilities – academic upgrading, apprenticeship, diploma, college degree,
university degree or graduate studies.
                                                         WHAT’S NEW?
Georgian is growing! The Barrie Campus will open the Centre for Health and Wellness this fall 2011. At 172,000-square feet, the
Centre is the largest academic expansion in Georgian College history. It will include community-accessible teaching health care
clinics where members of the public (including students) can access health care while at the same time offering students valuable
clinical experience. A new Aboriginal Resource Centre will also be part of the Centre for Health and Wellness, and will feature a
circular classroom, an outdoor patio with a medicine wheel (stone garden) and fire pit to be used for ceremonial gatherings.
Completion of the first phase will provide space for an additional 1,800 full-time students (completion of the second phase will
bring the total capacity to 3,000 students). Enrolment in Georgian’s health and wellness programs has tripled over the past 10
years. Without construction of the Centre for Health and Wellness, Georgian would have run out of space within the next two
years. Space in the new building will permit enrolment in health and wellness studies to double from current numbers, helping to
meet the region’s booming demand for health care professionals. Total project capital cost is estimated at $65 million.

In addition, a new campus in Collingwood is under construction and will be open for Fall 2011 intake. The John Di Poce South
Georgian Bay campus will offer 20,000 square feet of space and seven full-time programs, ready to house 250 full-time students
and 3000 part-time students.

theatres, grocery stores, shopping and entertainment. Because of the central location, students at Lambton can easily
manage without the use of a vehicle. In addition to the main campus facilities, the college also owns and operates its
own Fire School which is currently being renovated and will be open to students September 2011.

                                                    WHAT’S NEW?
