Admission Information


General Admission Requirements

To be admitted to any Greystone College program, prospective students must meet specific requirements regarding age, prior education, English level, and demonstrated proficiency in the basic skills required for college-level work.

All applicants must*:

• Have a secondary school diploma or equivalent (in Toronto, accepted secondary school diplomas must be from Canada or the USA); or

• In Toronto only, be at least 18 years of age, and pass a superintendent approved qualifying test.

• In Montréal, a candidate is eligible to an Attestation of College Studies program (AEC) if his/her educational training is deemed sufficient by the College and if it meets one of the following conditions:

a) If a candidate has interrupted his full-time studies for at least two (2) consecutive sessions or for one (1) full school year;

b) The candidate has pursued his/her post secondary education for a period of at least one (1) year.

c) Even though a candidate who has a High School Diploma is considered to have the necessary education to enroll in a College program, all applicants must submit, with the application, all academic records and all other documents deemed necessary for admission purposes. If the applicant does not possess a High School Diploma, he must submit, with his application, last transcripts, proof of academic accomplishments, a resume, a description of his professional accomplishments along with letters of recommendation from present and previous employers.

* For Toronto's TESOL TKT Preparation Certificate, the secondary-school diploma & age requirement are recommended, but not required.
Additional requirements for applicants whose first language is not English

All applicants whose first language is not English must provide proof of English proficiency. Please refer to the language entry level chart on the International Students page. Students taking Interpreting and Translation programs also require proof of proficiency in Korean (school records from education in which Korean was the language of instruction or minimum TOPIK level 5).

If a prospective student fails to meet the minimum admission requirements, neither the institution nor the student can waive the requirements.
