Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

If you are looking at Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma (OSSD) equivalency because you are interested in entering post-secondary education, generally, post-secondary institutions may request detailed academic records be submitted to them with your application for evaluation.

In some cases, a Board of Admissions will consider applications for admission from students who have gained their educational qualifications abroad. This way they will see whether or not your academic standing is equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma (OSSD).

Each applicant is assessed for equivalencies on an individual basis.

In some cases, some post-secondary institutions request that secondary school graduation certificates or diplomas be at the higher or senior level or that general Certificates of Education with courses at the general or “O” level should include at least two courses at the Advanced level.

It is best that you contact the post-secondary institution you are interested in attending directly.

You can find some information in our Settlement.Org What are the academic requirements for post-secondary education? and How do I choose the right university or college for me? articles.

Your user ID indicates that you are in Mississauga. You may also want to contact the nearest community agency for more information and assistance. You can find the nearest one in our Services Near Me section.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
