Applying to a Highly Competitive Program?

We will begin issuing offers of admission on February 1st. If a program is determined to be oversubscribed by that date, we will notify you by email in early February. We will then undertake a selection process to determine eligibility for offers of admission. Offers to highly competitive programs are typically issued beginning in mid-March. Qualified applicants who do not receive an offer at that time will be placed on the waitlist and where possible, considered for alternate offers of admission.

Congratulations! Welcome to Fleming College

We will notify you of your offer of admission by email, and will also send you a hard copy offer package. If you applied via ontariocolleges.ca, your offer will also be viewable there. Read through these items carefully and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your offer.

About Your Offer

Depending on your academic background and the program(s) you have applied to, you may receive different types of offers.

Types of Offers

Conditional Offers

A Conditional Offer of Admission means that you have been extended an offer on the condition that you complete any outstanding program admission requirements prior to the start of class.

For an offer to Semester 1 of a Diploma or Certificate program, this might mean completion of your Ontario Secondary School Diploma and additional individual courses identified on your program page.

For an offer to an Upper Semester of a Diploma or Certificate - or a Post-Graduate program - this might mean completion of post-secondary courses or programs in which you're currently enrolled.

Check your offer of admission carefully for any conditions noted and ensure that you complete them and submit appropriate documentation prior to the start of class.

You can accept a conditional offer, even with outstanding program admission requirements.

Unconditional Offers

Unconditional Offers of Admission are issued if you have already completed all the admissions requirements for your program. You are likely not currently enrolled in any courses or programs required by the program in your offer of admission and have already submitted all your final, official transcripts or other requested documentation.

Alternate Offers

Alternate Offers of Admission are issued to a program or start date other than that to which you initially applied. We try to provide all applicants with alternate pathways to pursue their areas of academic interests at Fleming in the event that:

  • You do not meet the requirements for your program, or;
  • The program is oversubscribed

Alternate Offers can be conditional or unconditional. Acceptance of an alternate offer does not impact in any way your consideration for other programs to which you have applied or are awaiting a decision.

I'm on a Waitlist. What Does this Mean?

Applicants can be placed on a waitlist if:

  • Their application was received by the equal consideration deadline of February 1st and were considered within a selection process, or;
  • They applied after the equal consideration deadline and seats in the programs have been filled.

We continue to monitor program enrolments and do contact applicants placed on the waitlist if space becomes available.

Note, accepting a different offer - either from Fleming or another college, will not affect your standing on
