English Language Proficiency: All applicants to the College whose first language is not English must demonstrate competence in the English language.

This requirement applies to international, non-international, residents, transfer and non-transfer students. Based on the results of the assessment examination admissions will either accept or deny the applicant for enrollment.

Criminal Background Check: Applicants enrolling in the College who have a misdemeanor or felony conviction should be aware that they may not meet applicable licensure or certification requirements and may not be able to secure employment in the field. Certain misdemeanor and felony convictions may prevent a student from successfully completing the desired program due to the inability to place students on internship/externship and/or gain employment; therefore, all applicants  selected for enrollment, will be enrolled conditionally until background screening results are reviewed.

Drug Screening: The College’s Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program prohibits the unauthorized use, possession, sale, conveyance, distribution, and manufacture of controlled substances, including marijuana, as well as being under the influence of legally prescribed drugs that prevent an individual from performing the essential functions of his or her job or where the individual poses a direct threat while using those drugs. Casa Loma College adheres to all policies of clinical facilities with which the College affiliates for student clinical internship/externship learning experiences. Clinical facilities often require students to submit to a drug screen and to test negative for Drugs as a condition of acceptance at that clinical facility. Accepted candidates for admission to a program may therefore be required to pass a drug test prior to enrollment in a program, randomly while in the program, and/or prior to the start of a clinical rotation. Accepted candidates who refuse to submit to screening or fail to pass a drug screening may be withdrawn from consideration or enrollment into a program; enrolled students who refuse to submit to screening or fail to pass a drug screen may face disciplinary action up to and including termination.

It is the policy of Casa Loma College not to discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, age, national origin, veteran, or qualified disability in educational programs, activities, or admissions.

Casa Loma College reserves the right to deny enrollment or continued enrollment to any student.
