Elpis College welcomes students from the Greater Toronto Area, across Canada, and around the world. We also accept students on full-time, part-time, and supplementary bases. Admission requirements vary based on citizenship and academic needs.

Full-Time and Part-Time Students

In order to process your application, Elpis College requires you to submit an official transcript from your current school AND your latest report card. This will allow us to determine which grade you will enter and which courses you are eligible to take. Please bring your home-school student ID with you as well as an official proof of identity (passport, driver's licence, etc.).

International Students

You may apply to Elpis College before or after receiving your student visa. If you are accepted to Elpis College, we will gladly provide you with an official Letter of Acceptance, which you can forward to your Canadian embassy. In order to determine which grade you will be placed in and which courses you are eligible to take, you must send Elpis College a copy of your school report cards and transcript, which outline the past THREE years of your education. School documents in a language other than English require an English translation and/or an official evaluation through WES.

Have you submitted all the requirements?

Visit the Registration Process page to find out how to register as a student at Elpis College.
Yes. English is the language of instruction at Elpis College. Therefore, you must be able to prove that you can adequately communicate in English. You are welcome to submit recent TOEFL or IELTS scores or simply participate in an interview with one of Elpis College’s admissions officers.

In February 2014, the Government of Canada introduced new regulations for international students who intend to study here. Visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada for a complete outline of the new requirements.

Please note that school documents in a language other than English require an English translation and/or an official evaluation through WES.
As a prospective student, you and your parents and/or guardians will have a short interview at the school to discuss the responsibilities of being an Elpis College student and to create the academic plan you will follow during your time with us.
Elpis College accepts applications on a rolling basis. This means that you can submit your application at any time during the year, and we will review it as soon as possible. Depending on the nature of your requirements and the timing of your application, you may be granted admission to the current term or the next one.
Regular attendance is mandatory for success in credit courses: you are expected to be punctual and present at every class. All absences and tardies are recorded. You may be withdrawn from the course after one unacceptable absence. Excessive missed hours may result in you not earning a credit from the course, which will still be recorded on your official transcript.
Elpis College credit courses adhere to the requirements set forth by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Depending on the type of course, nature of the class environment, and other factors, daily homework may be assigned. You must be prepared to allocate sufficient time to work at home every day to complete all assignments successfully and on time.
To qualify for a credit, you must complete the culminating tasks (worth 30% of the final mark) of the course you are taking. This means you may have to write a final exam, submit a project, or both before Elpis College can grant you a credit.
You must attend the last day of classes to receive your final grades and to review your exams (and other assignments). You may also pick up your report cards from the main office at this time.
