  • Step 2 – Login to or Create your UCC Application Account

    To start your application for 2023 entry, you must first login to or create your UCC application account. If this is your first time applying, you will need to create an account. Please ensure that when you create the account, you use the candidate’s legal name as it appears on his birth certificate or passport.

    If the system recognizes your email address during account creation, your email address will be highlighted in red after you press "Submit". If this occurs, or you created an account previously and do not remember the account information, click on "Forgot Login?" You will then be prompted to enter your email address and request both your username and password. After submitting this request, please check your email inbox for two emails containing your username and instructions for logging in. Creation of more than one account per family may lead to a delay in the processing of applications and/or documents.

    Only the candidate's parents are legally authorized to create an account and submit an application. Agents wishing to submit an application on behalf of a parent should contact the Office of Admission at before creating an account.

    Once you’ve logged in or created an account, click on the application form button to start filling out the form. You can save your work and return to complete and submit it at any time – please allow 30 minutes to an hour in total to complete the form. Please ensure that all form fields are complete before submitting as the application information cannot be edited once submitted. Please allow two days for processing the application form and payment.

    The deadline to apply is December 1, 2022. The application fee schedule is as follows:
      • $200 until Nov. 1, 2022
      • $250 Nov. 2–Dec. 1, 2022

    Once your form has been processed, you can log back in to upload PDF copies of the following documents:
      • Final (June) 2020–21 school reports (if available)
      • Final (June) 2021–22 school reports
      • Passport open to the photo and name page
    Images of multiple pages should be merged into a single file before uploading using an app such as Adobe Scan. Applicants are required to submit these documents by December 1, 2022.
  • Step 5 – Submit a Current Report Card and Parent Survey

    Current Report: All applicants will also need to submit a current school report as soon as it becomes available and no later than February 25, 2022.

    Parent Survey: We will reach out to all SK applicant parents in February 2023 with a link to complete a survey about their son's developmental skills and current schooling.

    Please do not submit any additional documents unless requested.
  • Step 6 – Await Your Family Visit and Assessment

    Following a review of required documents submitted, we will contact eligible families in February 2023 regarding visit and assessment times. Ineligible applicants who do not meet age and language requirements will be notified as soon as possible.

    Family visits will take place in spring 2023 and the assessment day is April 1, 2023. The family visit gives us insight into the applicant and family’s personalities, interests and values through conversation with the student and his parents together. It’s also an opportunity for parents to gain a deeper insight into who we are and what we do at UCC.

    The assessment surveys development in the following areas: number concepts, auditory skills, paper-and-pencil skills and free-play. This is where we observe your child in a group setting with their peers and evaluate social skills.

    * Due to COVID-19 restrictions, visits and assessments may be conducted virtually. Applicant families will receive full details in February.
  • Step 7 – Receive your Decision

    Admission decisions for our Senior Kindergarten applicants will be sent on April 5, 2023.
