ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS All applicants must: Have a personal relationship with Christ. Have a sincere desire to study the Bible and be willing to be involved in Christian ministry. Have a Grade 12 diploma or equivalent. (Those applying without a high school diploma may be accepted as a mature student, home-educated student, or on special privilege.) Complete the application process. Be willing to adhere to the student life guidelines as stated in the Student Handbook.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE 1. Carefully read this catalogue, including the Statement of Faith. 2. Complete and submit the application form to Eston College. It is available from the Admissions Office or online at www.estoncollege.ca. Submit the application form along with: $50.00 non-refundable application fee. Official high school transcript & official transcripts from any post-secondary education. Current photograph (2” x 3” minimum). 3. Ensure reference forms are completed and returned to Eston College. Please submit applications prior to August 1st. This enables prospective students to receive notification regarding acceptance in a timely fashion, and also assists our office procedures. 4. Sign a “Resident Conduct Policy” (provided after admission). 5. Obtain a criminal record check completed by your local police.

Transfer of Credits Students transferring from other comparable colleges and universities will receive recognition of credit for courses which fit within a student’s program of studies at Eston College. A request for recognition, along with an official transcript from the other college, must be submitted to the Registrar when registering. For further information see page 59. Late Registrations Students who register for a course after the last day to add a class will only be permitted to take the class as an audit. A late fee of $75.00 will apply. Procedure for Re-entry Students who have been absent from the college for 12 months or more must indicate their intention to re-enter. They must complete the Returning Student Application Form. This form is available from the Admissions Office. If a student re-enters a program after the allotted time for completing a program, it may be necessary for the re-entering student to fulfill the requirements of the catalogue in use at the time they re-enter, rather than those of the catalogue in use at the time of their first admission. Before re-entry is permitted, a student’s account must be paid in full. For lengths of time allotted to complete a program, please see Program Descriptions. Guidelines for Adding, Dropping or Changing a Course Each semester, registered students may choose to change, drop or add one course or several. Supplementary Registration Forms are available from the Registrar to allow for such requests to be processed. There is no fee for changes made before 5:00 pm on official Registration Days; courses added, dropped or changed after Registration Day are subject to a fee of $50 per each change. The last date to add/change a class, and last date to drop a class, are published in the college calendar. Students who withdraw from a class(es) after the published “last day to drop” will have a “WF” (withdrawal while failing) recorded on their student transcript, and should refer to the Refund schedule on page 28. Note: Alternate Admission Procedures Applicants who have not completed high school but desire to gain admission into the college may be approved under Mature Status or Special Privilege. Up to 5% of the student body may be students without a high school diploma. The following criteria must be met in order to gain admission: Complete the application form and follow regular application procedures and entrance requirements as outlined in the catalogue. Have completed no more than 17 transferable credits from another college or university. (Students that have completed 18 or more transferable credits are eligible for entry under Regular Admission.) Submit any copies of supporting documents that demonstrate the successful completion of non-credit courses (for example: job-related, church, or business courses, General Equivalency Diploma, Adult Basic Education, etc.). Mature Students In addition to the requirements above, applicants must: Be age 21 by the first day of classes and provide proof of age through a photocopy of a birth certificate or driver’s license. Submit a written request for admission under Mature Status that demonstrates his or her capacity to complete college-level courses and a commitment to educational pursuits. The written request must include a summary of work history and personal experience since leaving high school.

Special Privilege In addition to the requirements above (excluding Mature Status requirements), applicants must: Be under the age of 21 by the first day of classes and provide proof of age through a photocopy of a birth certificate or a driver’s license. Submit a written request for admission under Special Privilege that demonstrates his or her capacity to complete college level courses and a commitment to education pursuits. The written request must include a summary of work history and personal experience since leaving high school. Include a letter of reference supporting their capacity to successfully complete college-level courses and educational goals. Students that are accepted under Mature Status or Special Privilege may be restricted to a lighter course load within the first year of study. Home Educated Students All home educated applicants must complete the following to gain admission to Eston College1: 1. Complete and submit the Student Application 2. Statement of Intent Applicants must submit a signed and dated paragraph detailing the following information: how many years he or she has been a home based learner, the name of any third party evaluating exams that the student has taken, and a sentence declaring “I believe that my academic background has adequately prepared me for postsecondary studies at Eston College”. 3.

4.

Home Educated Learner Transcript Applicants must submit an official transcript from an outside party such as a home educator’s organization or school board to the Admissions Dept. If no such third party documentation can be provided, applicants must submit a signed copy of a home transcript completed by his or her primary educator, or complete one of the following2: SAT Test (www.collegeboard.com) ACT Test (www.act.org) GED (General Education Diploma) Transcripts from courses taken at other post-secondary institutions Demonstration of Skills and Knowledge Part I - Each applicant must submit a 3-page (double spaced) writing sample. The paper must demonstrate the student’s ability to research and think critically as well as his or her English composition skills. It is recommended that the assignment cover a topic that is related to a field that would likely be studied at Eston College (i.e. Bible, History, Christian Studies, or English as opposed to Chemistry, Physics, or Mathematics). This paper can come from the student’s final year of education (Grade 12 equivalent) or it can be written specifically for the sake of admission to the college. Part II (optional) – Students may also submit records of any other experiences or training they have gained that would illustrate the nature of their home education (i.e. ministry experience, special skill seminars, arts activities, community involvement, educational environment, etc).

Upon acceptance to Eston College, each home educated student will enter a one semester probationary period. This period is designed to support the student during the transition from home education to a post-secondary institution. 1

For all applicants, completion of these forms is a prerequisite to admission but does not guarantee admission. 2 Applicants that do not or cannot submit either an official transcript or one of the aforementioned substitutions may still gain acceptance to Eston College as a Special Privilege Admission. The college may only admit a limited number of these students, so applicants will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, and may be placed on a wait list.

UNCLASSIFIED STUDENT ADMISSIONS A student may take up to five courses for credit without formal admission to one of the academic programs. By the sixth course a student must declare whether they intend to enter a program. Unclassified students must submit the following documents each time a new course is taken: • An Unclassified Student Application form • A pastoral reference • A signed “Resident Conduct Policy” Students who declare that they wish to enter a program will at that point be requested to meet all standard application requirements for full-time students. Student ministry requirements will be discussed with the Registrar and an Academic Advisor. Students who, at this point, express a desire to remain “unclassified,” and then at a later date approach the college about entering a program will need to follow standard application requirements. A course plan including student ministry will be drawn up by the Registrar.

[ 31 ]


Applicants Whose First Language is not English Applicants whose first language is not English must submit a TOEFL score of at least 550 on the paper-based test or 213 on the computer-based test before they will be admitted into a regular college program. A student who falls short of this score must enrol in Eston College’s ESL program to develop English language skills (see page 74 for information on the ESL program). A student may re-take the TOEFL at the end of each semester, if so desired, and when the minimum score is achieved, may apply to the college program for admission. International Student Requirements In addition to the entrance requirements, international students must obtain student authorization and visa prior to admittance into Canada. To do this, applicants must present the Canadian Government Office in their own country with: 1. A declaration of Conditional Acceptance from Eston College. 2. Evidence of their good character and, if needed, a letter from their sponsoring organization. 3. Evidence of adequate funds for the student and (if applicable) his/her family to live and study in Canada, and to return to their country. 4. Certificate of medical clearance from required countries. Once they have received their student visa and passport, and Eston College has received total payment of funds, international students will receive an official letter of acceptance from Eston College. Please note that these preparations take longer than one may anticipate. It is recommended that international students begin their preparations six months or more in advance of the academic year in which they intend to study. International Student Employment International students and their legal spouses can apply for a Work Permit once in Canada. Application must be made at Canadian Immigration before beginning work. There is a non-refundable processing fee for employment authorization. Information is available from www.cic.gc.ca. Mini-Semester Since it is not always possible for everyone to take eight months away from home commitments to study at Bible college, Eston College has developed the mini-semester program. Mini-semesters are one or two-week courses which take place in September and January, just prior to the regular fall and winter semesters. Eston College offers one mini-semester class without charge to pastoral staff who are recognized by a congregation. The offer applies to tuition, but not room and board. The offer is limited to the first mini-semester class taken by the applicant. Application fee, books and any other charges are the responsibility of the applicant. During mini-semester, visiting students join with the full-time students to: Take a three-credit course for either credit1 or audit (no assignments) Thoughtfully engage with other students Interact with professors one-on-one Experience a reflective time away from the busyness of everyday Benefit from Spirit-filled worship in chapel To facilitate community, visiting students have the opportunity to stay in the on-campus residence with the other students. Rooms and cafeteria meals are available for a modest fee. Students may also make their own arrangements. To register for mini-semesters, apply online at www.estoncollege.ca or complete the “Unclassified Student” application form found in the application booklet. Mini-Semester Prices Application Fee ........................................ 25.00 Room (per week) ...................................... 72.00 Board (per week) .................................... 108.00

Tuition (course taken for credit)…….567.00 Tuition (course audited)…………… 507.00

1

The assignment due date for students who take a mini-semester class for credit is four weeks after the course is finished. An assignment submitted one day after the due date will have a deduction of 10%, the following day 30% and the next three days 50%. Assignments that are handed in after five weeks from the end of the course will receive zero. Assignments due prior to the fourth week and submitted late will be penalized with a 10% deduction for one day late, 30% deduction for two days late, and 50% deduction until the end of the fifth week.
