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.

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 Accepted candidates who refuse to submit to screening or fail to pass a drug screening may be withdrawn from consideration or enrollment into a program; enrolled students who refuse to submit to screening or fail to pass a drug screen may face disciplinary action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.
