INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS PROCESS
We welcome International Students! Our student body is diverse and comprised of students from all over the world. You are considered to be an international student if you are not a North American or Caribbean legal resident (ie. non-Canadian, American or Caribbean student) A TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) examination score may be required from applicants from countries where English is not an official language if the applicant is unable to demonstrate proficiency in English during the Interview and Application process.
