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. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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, 2020. The application fee schedule is as follows:
All applicants will also need to submit a current school report. Generally a mid-term report is issued by schools in November or December. Please upload a current report as soon as it becomes available and no later than February 5, 2021. Please also submit any standardized testing (eg. EQAO) if available.
Please do not submit any additional documents unless requested.
UCC committed more than $5 million in financial assistance for the 2020-2021 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, 2020. Visit Affording UCC to learn more and apply.
Selected candidates will be contacted to arrange an interview via video meeting. Candidates are selected for interviews based on a review of required documents. In some cases testing will be requested before an interview is scheduled. Interviews take place from October through mid-February.
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.
Selected candidates will be contacted to schedule an entrance test, to be completed online from their home. The test is age-appropriate and evaluates literacy and numeracy skills.
We will accept SSAT results in lieu of UCC entrance test results to accommodate families who register to write the SSAT before December 31, 2020. Please review the SSAT section of the Admission FAQ for information on this standardized entrance test and submitting test scores.
