Let’s Get Started: How to apply

Every year, hundreds of students come to Holland College from across P.E.I., from other parts of Canada, and from around the world. Some are straight out of high school, others have been to university, and some others have been in the work force. All of them come here to get the education, experience, and skills that will take them closer to their life and career goals.

Today, you can become one of them in three easy steps.

1. Choose your program and campus

You’ve got lots of options—we offer over 70 programs in 12 locations. Need help choosing a program? Email or call us and we’ll help you identify the programs that would be right for you.

2. Collect your application materials

These include:

Your official high school transcript. This is one of the most important documents we need. Have your high school forward your transcript directly to our Admissions Office.

Still in high school? If you are currently in Grade 12, get your first semester marks forwarded as soon as they are available; your final transcript should be forwarded after graduation.

Did you graduate a while ago? We still need your high school transcript. Even if you went on to post-secondary after high school, we need your high school marks.

Have a GED? If you did not graduate from high school and have a GED, send us a copy of that.

Can’t obtain your high school transcript? Contact us.

Any other transcripts. If you have attended any other post-secondary institution, have them forward your marks directly to our Admissions Office.  Entry into many of our programs is competitive and your post-secondary marks can increase your chances for admission!

Supporting documents. You must include a resumé detailing your work and volunteer experience. Other documentation is listed in the Admission Requirements section of each program page. Check the admissions requirements for your program to see which items you need to supply.

Certifications. If you have any certificates or training that is relevant to the program to which you are applying include photocopies of the certificates.  Recognition cannot be given for certificates without documentation.

Proof of your ability to speak English, if it is not your first language. Learn more here.

Application fees. These are $40 for most programs, except for Police Science, which is $125. Fees for international students are $100 for all programs. Have a valid credit card ready if you are applying online.

3. Apply!

Online. Use this Full-Time Program Application Form to apply online for all programs except Police Science (Cadet). You must have a valid credit card to apply online. Send your supporting documents by regular post, email, or fax. Make sure your supporting documents clearly identify you so we can match them to your application.

On paper. You can also download the Holland College Application Form and submit it, along with your application fee, to our Admissions Office, or drop it off at any Holland College Centre. Addresses are on the form.

If you are applying for Police Science (Cadet), use this Application Form.

Accommodations. There are a limited number of rooms available in our student residence, Glendenning Hall, located in Charlottetown at the Prince of Wales Campus, so it’s best to apply for your program and room as soon as possible. Use this online Residence Application Form.

If you are applying for Police Science (Cadet), Conservation Enforcement, Correctional Officer, Basic Firefighting, or the Sheriff and Public Safety Officer program, you do not need to apply for residence.  We will have a room available for you as part of your program application at the Atlantic Police Academy.

Important Dates

The application review date for most programs is the last day of February every year. Some programs are very popular, so improve your chances of getting in by submitting your application and as many of your supporting documents as possible by that date.
