If your credit card requires processing time (can be 1 to 3 days) OR you choose to pay via wire, you will receive an update from Ontariocollege.ca when the payment has been accepted.

If this was not the case, the application has likely been submitted to the Domestic Ontario Colleges application portal. The applicant will need to re-submit their application by following the instructions available. Applicants can request for a refund of domestic application fee at firstname.lastname@example.org. (OCAS will not provide refunds if applicants have applied to more than one college using the incorrect portal).
Updates can be found on the Ontario Colleges International application portal. Applicants working with an agent can seek this information from their agent. If no update is received within 30 days of submitting an application, the applicant or their agent should contact International Admissions directly at email@example.com.
Some ancillary fees are charged upfront. For instance, students studying at the Sutherland Campus and starting in September will have the fee "Integrated Transportation Fee" (Bus Pass), and "International Health Plan" (International Health Insurance coverage). These fees are charged once (1x) per year in September OR at a prorated (reduced) amount based on the term they enter.
When using the tuition details charts on each program page to calculate the cost of upper semesters of a program, be sure to subtract the Transportation and Health Plan charges based on the intake you entered.
New merit-based scholarships are available to international students with excellent academic achievements at Fleming College. For more information, please review page 31 of our International Viewbook.
During the first 3 weeks of the term, students with an active timetable can apply for financial assistance through Fleming's bursary program found on the Financial Aid web page.

Congratulations! We will see you at Fleming College soon. Students or their agent should upload the issued study permit & visa to their respective Ontario Colleges application to complete the online admissions process.
Exact dates and information will be communicated by email within 1 - 2 months before the start of the semester.
Students unable to arrive for the beginning of their program should consider the possibility of deferring your admission to the next available intake, or withdrawing from your program - please refer to question “How do I request a deferral” and “How do I request a withdrawal/refund” below. If you are unable to arrive by day 5 of the term (the offer expiry date listed on your offer letter), contact International Admissions ahead of time to plan for the best course of action.
Students who have accepted an offer and paid fees can request a deferral by logging into their International Ontario Colleges application portal. Then, choose "Withdraw Acceptance", provide a reason for withdrawal, choose "Yes"for request a deferral, and follow the instructions provided.
Students working with an agent should follow their agency guidelines for deferring to different term.
A deferral can only be made for the same program within the same academic year (example: deferral can be made from September to January or May, not September to the following September).
Applicants that have not paid fees but would like to be considered for a different term, simply need to reapply to the new term through OCAS (on their own, or through an agent). These students do not need to make a deferral request.
In the application, choose "Withdraw Acceptance"provide a reason for withdrawal, choose "No"for request a Refund, and follow the instructions provided. You must include the International Student Wire Refund Request Form in your request.
For any questions on this process, please email us at International Admissions.
Once a complete withdrawal is submitted, it can take up to 6 - 8 weeks to complete refund processing. Please refrain from contacting Admission and Cashier's about refund status for at least 6 weeks after a completed request has been submitted. At present, students will not receive any notifications of funds transfer, so it is advised that their account be regularly checked.
Certain programs have a field placement/co-op work component where students have the opportunity to work outside the classroom in their field of study, as a part of their program workload.
To perform work as a part of your study in Canada (both paid and unpaid, on or off campus), students are required to apply for a Co-op Work Permit.
On your offer letter, the CO-OP WORK PERMIT INFORMATIONpage is a letter of support to your application for a Co-op Work Permit. You must indicate in your initial Study Permit application that you will require a Co-op Work Permit and attach this page to your application.
At the Port of Entry upon your arrival to Canada, a Canada Border Services officer will issue you a Co-op Work Permit along with your Study Permit. Alternatively, students can apply for a Co-op Work Permit during their stay in Canada using the same letter. Waiting to apply for this permit in Canada will result in added delays, and may impact your ability to meet program requirements.
For the most up-to-date information, please refer to the web site of Immigration Canada.
Information and tips on searching for housing can be found on the on-campus and off-campus housing websites. During International Orientation, which typically takes place the week prior to beginning of classes, students are briefed on their rights as tenants in Canada. Any questions that may arise after reviewing these materials can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will receive a timetable through My Student Centre within 24-48 hours after checking-in in person at one of Fleming College's campuses. Prior to this, it is not possible to determine what a schedule might look like, however the number of class hours each week can be estimated by reviewing the program's curriculum on its specific program page.
For each class, the Unit/Hourscan typically be divided by 15 (weeks) to find out the number of class hours each week. If you have further questions as to the delivery of the class, you should contact the program coordinator, listed on the right side of each program page.
In accordance with provincial law, personal student information can only be shared with the student directly, or to an authorized third party (example: an agent supporting you). A friend or relative can make payments on the student/applicant's behalf, or let the College know of the questions from student/applicant so that they can be contacted by the College with the answer. Friends and relatives would not be able to retrieve/access any information on the student/applicant's admission or student account.
