Why apply to a program?

Applying to a program lets the college know you intend to complete the program as it is outlined in the program design. Choosing to apply to a program:

  • allows Conestoga to offer courses when you need them, and
  • ensures that courses you have successfully completed are applied to your credential even if the program outline changes.

Apply to graduate

Once you have successfully completed the course requirements of a program you need to apply to graduate by filling out the apply to graduate form. Submit the form in person or by mail to the Registrar’s Office at 299 Doon Valley Drive, Kitchener, Ontario, N2G 4M4 or fax at 519-895-1097.

Programs, courses and workshops

Programs are groups of courses that when combined lead to an academic credential or document of recognition. In order to obtain a credential and apply to graduate, program application is required.

Courses are learning experiences of varying lengths. Choose to register for an individual course on its own, or as part of a program to work towards a certification.

Workshops are short, results-driven and led by subject-matter experts in an interactive learning environment.
