More Program Information

In addition to meeting the academic requirements, some of our creative arts programs have additional admission requirements. Check your program below!

Bachelor of Applied Arts in Film, Theatre and Live Entertainment - Film Production

We will NOT be physically interviewing applicants this year and will be reviewing your supporting documents to make admission decisions. Please refer to the link below for more detailed instructions:

Bachelor of Applied Arts in Animation and Visual Effects

As part of the application process applicants must submit a Career Investigation Report. The Career Investigation Report is meant to ensure that you have a basic understanding of the 3D animation and visual effects industry and that the program is a good fit for your goals, as well as to assess your suitability as a candidate for the program.

Career Investigation Report instructions will be emailed directly to you after your application has been processed. The Career Investigation is graded and will be used to determine admission to the program. Space is limited to 22 students and therefore we encourage that you apply early.

To be considered in the first round of admissions for Fall 2021 Career Investigation Reports must be received by January 31, 2021.

Visual Art Diploma and Bachelor of Fine Art (University Transfer)

There are no additional requirements for admission to our visual art programs...this means that we do not require a portfolio submission! After submitting your application you will receive email and mail communication within 3-4 weeks.
