HOW TO APPLY
Step 1: Create a Dashboard Account and complete the online application.
If you are applying for the EAP Program you do not need to send your high school transcript or résumé, however, if you would like to be considered for acceptance into a Holland College post-secondary program, you will need these documents at a later date.
Step 2: One of our EAP Advisors will contact you to schedule your EAP Placement test*. This test is used as a guideline to determine whether you will be in our beginner or intermediate level of EAP. The placement test is completed online, however, if you have a current IELTS score we can use these results instead.
*The result of the Holland College placement test is not proof of academic language proficiency for a Holland College post-secondary program.
