College and university rep visits to O.S.S.

Grade 12 students who are considering college or university next year may be interested to hear presentations by college and university reps who will discuss things like:  campus life, scholarships, programs, residence, etc.  Look through the calendar and, if you are interested in attending any presentations, sign up in Guidance.  You will notice that some visits have been scheduled over the lunch-hour.  Usually the representative will set up a display in the front forum area and you will be able to ask questions and/or pick up a viewbook at that time.

This year, OSS is pleased to be hosting APSIP, the Aboriginal Post-Secondary Information Program on Tuesday, October 23rd.

The best way to decide what college is right for you is to visit the campus!  Potential students and their families can attend Open Houses in order to tour campus facilities, visit program and service booths, and ask questions about the college and programs available. Open House.jpg

Introducing A New Way to Explore Highly Competitive Programs


We're excited to announce a new feature in our Find a Program search tool that makes it easier than ever to identify highly competitive programs at Ontario's colleges.

What is a Highly Competitive Program?

For those who aren't already aware, highly competitive programs are those that historically receive more applications than there are spaces available. To be considered for these programs, applicants applying for the fall start date must complete their applications by February 1st – the date commonly known as the Equal Consideration Date. After this date, applications to these programs may be closed. Those applying to programs beginning at other times of the year will need to contact the colleges for information about application processing dates.

The Highly Competitive Program Filter

Building on existing filters in Find a Program – such as College, Program Category, Credential and more – we've now added a Highly Competitive filter with two selection options:

  • No – displaying only programs that are not highly competitive
  • Yes – displaying only programs that are highly competitive
New Highly Competitive Program Filter



How to Search

There are two different ways to search for programs with the highly competitive filter. College explorers can start their search by keyword, college or category to identify the programs they're interested in, and then select the new Highly Competitive filter to see which programs in their search results are highly competitive.

Alternatively, the filter can also be used as a starting point to identify all highly competitive programs, and then layered with additional filters to target a search more deeply.

Once a search is complete and users have found the programs they're interested in, deeper program details – such as admission requirements, tuition costs and course requirements – can be found by clicking the Visit link next to each program listing leading directly to the college's own program pages.
