International Students Overview
International Students – Everest Canada
Congratulations, you’ve made the decision to attend one of our Everest College of Business, Technology and Health Care campuses in Ontario, Canada. Attending school as an international student is both exciting and challenging.
In Canada, the application requirements for a study permit and visa can be rigorous. We hope to minimize the challenges you may experience through the guidelines found on these pages. Or, just contact your desired Everest campus to talk to a representative about admission requirements.
International Acceptance Criteria
To attend an Everest campus in Canada, you must meet a few specific criteria:
- You must be 18 years of age or older.
- As courses are taught in English, you must be able to read and write in English.
- All applicants are required to complete the Assessment for Admissions Test with an acceptable score.
- Students attending a program over six months in length must have their Student Visa.
- You meet all program-specific criteria (i.e. negative criminal record check, completed immunization record, etc.)
Once you have met the International Acceptance Criteria and have made an inquiry for more information, you will likely be contacted by an Admissions Representative who will guide you through the process with ease.
- If you are currently visiting or residing within Canadian borders, the Admissions Representative will schedule an appointment to give you a tour of one of our campuses and answer any questions you may have.
- If you are not located within the Canadian borders, the Admissions Representative will send you an information package that contains an Introductory Letter, Program details and Tuition Fees, and general information regarding Everest College.
- Once the Admissions Representative receives your Application for Enrollment and all supporting documentation, the Admissions Representative will send you a letter acknowledging an International Conditional Acceptance.
- Once the Admissions Representative receives your deposit of 25 percent of the tuition fee, you will receive a standardized Letter of Acceptance, which is required by Immigration Canada to apply for your Canadian Study Permit. If all International Student Acceptance Criteria are met and you have received a passing score for the Assessment for Admissions Test, then you will receive final acceptance into the College.
- If you do not pass the assessment for Admissions Test, you may be asked to take an English as a Second Language course, your start date will be postponed and the Admissions Representative will issue you a new Letter of Acceptance with new start and end dates for your program of study. It is your responsibility to notify Citizenship & Immigration Canada of any changes to your status.
- The balance of all tuition is due at or after commencement date of the period of study. Contact the campus where you will be attending to find out if payment plans are available for qualified students.
Immunizations & Medical Exams
If you will be studying at Everest for longer than six months, a medical exam may be required. Although no specific immunizations (unless previously advised – dependent on program) are required to attend Everest College in Canada, you should be prepared with a copy of your immunization records.
