To start your application for 2021 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.

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.

Once Step 4 has been completed, files are reviewed to determine eligibility based on age and language requirements. Ineligible applicants will be notified as soon as possible prior to the test.
Eligible Year 5 and 6 applicants are required to write an entrance test at UCC during one of the following sessions:
Session 1: 9-11 a.m. on December 7, 2019 Session 2: 9-11 a.m. on January 18, 2020
We will confirm your chosen session closer to the test date. If you are planning to travel into Toronto for the test, please alert the Office of Admission before making travel arrangements.
The tests are age-appropriate and evaluate literacy and numeracy skills, followed by a creative and social skills activity. We've prepared some sample questions for Year 5 and Year 6 so you can get an idea of the test content.
UCC committed more than $5 million in financial assistance for the 2019-2020 year to ensure the College remains affordable for our families. Assistance is available to Canadian citizens starting in Year 5, so we encourage all interested and eligible applicants to apply.
Financial assistance is awarded on the basis of family need as established by a third-party organization, Apple Financial Services. Financial assistance decisions are separate from admission decisions. Awards range from $5,000 to full tuition.
A small percentage of financial assistance (less than two per cent) is dedicated to one-time merit-based Entrance Scholarships, awarded to top candidates based on the strength of their admission applications. No additional application is required.
The deadline to apply for needs-based financial assistance is December 31, 2019. Visit Affording UCC to learn more and apply.
Upon receipt of all required documents, selected candidates will be contacted to arrange an interview. Interviews take place from October through mid-February. Please note that in some cases interviews will not be scheduled until test results have been received.
The interview is about 45 minutes in total. Before spending time with the applicant, one of our Admission Counsellors will meet briefly with parents. While this is happening, the applicant will be asked to tell us about himself through a short writing exercise. The writing exercise is not graded.
After the Admission Counsellor has met with the parents, he/she will interview the applicant. During the applicant interview, the student will be asked to read a short piece while the remainder of the time is a relaxed conversation where he is encouraged to share information about himself and get to know us. The interview is meant to give insight into the applicant and family’s personalities, interests and values. It is also an opportunity for parents to gain a deeper insight into who we are and what we do at UCC.
We require at least one parent to participate in the interview process. If the parent(s) cannot participate in the interview in English, please advise the Office of Admission during interview scheduling.
