To apply for university/college in Ontario, you may need to do 3 things:

2. Translate Your High School Records
Some schools need you to professionally translate your high school documents if they are not in English or French. Contact the Office of Admissions at the university/college to find out if you need to do this.
You can translate your documents by:

- Searching The Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario (ATIO) - search their lists and find a translator by language and specialty.
- Searching the Yellow Pages - search "translators & interpreters."
3. Prove your English Language Skills
You may also have to prove your English proficiency by taking a standardized test, called TOEFL (Test of English Fluency Level) and submit your scores to your school of choice. Learn more about taking the TOEFL.
