Confederation Bound: Early Acceptance Program

The Confederation Bound: Early Acceptance Program is designed to encourage grade 11 students to consider a future at Confederation College

Built upon the principle that recipient students be identified by their high schools as needing extra encouragement to pursue postsecondary education. Early acceptances are meant to motivate recipient students to graduate from high school and promise them entry into their program of choice as long as admission requirements are met.

Annually, high schools in northwestern Ontario can refer up to five Grade 11 students for conditional offers of acceptance to full-time postsecondary programs* at Confederation College. 

Confederation Bound is offered at all Confederation College campuses including: Thunder Bay, Dryden, Greenstone, Lake of the Woods (Kenora), Rainy River District (Fort Frances), Red Lake, Sioux Lookout, Northshore (Marathon) and through our Distance Education arm.

Confederation College will issue conditional offers to the selected grade 11 students.

These students will apply for their program in Grade 12 through the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) by the deadline.

  • Students must meet all entrance requirements for their chosen programs.
  • Once students are registered in their programs, they will receive an Entrance Award of $1000 paid in 2 installments.
