To be admitted to Keyano College, applicants must meet the general requirements outlined below, as well as the specific requirements for the program to which they are applying. Specific admission requirements are listed with each program section of the Credit Calendar.

For most programs, applicants are accepted on a first qualified, first served basis once their application and supporting transcripts/documents have been received. For programs with an enrolment limit, the College reserves the right to employ academic rating scales for admission purposes.

Students currently enrolled in Grade 12 will be considered for early conditional admission on the basis of marks received to date and current enrolment.

For admission purposes at Keyano College, the G.E.D. is not considered a high school equivalent diploma.

Students under the age of 18, who have completed a high school diploma, are turning 18 years of age in their first academic year at Keyano College, and who meet the basic admission requirements for the programs to which they are applying will also be eligible for admission. Students who do not meet age requirement, but have a high school diploma and meet program admission requirements will require approval from the Registrar.

Regardless of country of origin or citizenship, applicants for all programs (except College Preparation and Academic Foundations) must demonstrate English Language Proficiency, as outlined in the Credit CalendarSpecific English Language Proficiency requirements are listed under each program section.

When submitting an application for admission students must arrange to have their official transcripts of high school and post-secondary education (college, university, technical institute) sent directly to the Office of the Registrar. Transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution to Keyano College to be considered official.

Once submitted, all transcripts become the property of Keyano College, and will not be returned to the applicant. This is standard practice among Canadian post-secondary institutions and is designed to protect the transcript’s authenticity. Photocopied documents are not acceptable.
