CAMPUS LIFE

Menu Option #4 College Diploma

What: College programs that offer specialized, applied experience in areas ranging from journalism to business studies to public relations.

Who should go: Anyone who feels their university degree did not provide them with enough practical experience to enter the work force or people who want to update their skills in order to enter today's competitive workforce.

What you need to do: Seek out what program you'd like to study and pick the school of your choice. If the school you've selected is in Ontario, apply through the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS). An online application is available on the OCAS Web site at www.ontariocolleges.ca.

Where you can go: Locally, popular options include Fanshawe College (which offers applied post-graduate programs in such diverse areas as technical writing and human services management), Westervelt College in London and Sheridan College and Seneca College in Toronto.

Cost of applying: The cost of applying through OCAS is $65. This fee covers an unlimited number of college program choices, as well as any changes you choose to make to your application.

Out of province information: To apply to an out-of province school, you must consult directly with that school's admissions department as to what their application process entails.

Scholarship info: Each school offers individual financial assistance options for incoming students. When applying for college, the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) is also an option, as is the Canada Millenium Scholarship. Information on both of these sources of financial assistance can be found online at http://osap.gov.on.ca.

Deadlines: The OCAS application deadline for college studies in Ontario starting in Sep. 2004 is Feb. 1, 2004.
