It is important for students to read, comprehend and accept this Student Handbook and Course Calendar as presented prior to registering. Parent(s), guardian(s) and advisors of students under the age of 18 years should also note the following information.
- We are an official school and as such have expectations and a Code of Conduct.
- TAC students receive an overview of School Expectations as well as the Code of Conduct via a Student Agreement upon enrolment that should be signed within a week of enrolment. Signed or not, the student is accountable to TAC policies.
- We are under the jurisdiction and mandates of the Ministry of Education, Province of Ontario.
- Students must provide appropriate official credentials that they have the proper qualifications and/or pre-requisites to register for a course(s) with TAC. For example, proof of age is required via a Birth Certificate, Driver’s License or current Passport. A photo ID is a must. A recent picture must accompany or be part of the submission.
- Official transcripts will be requested. That means they are signed under seal. Report cards English profit test and Official Transcripts. Unofficial Transcripts are not acceptable in Ontario.
- Students will have 30 days to produce the photo ID and official Transcript; i.e. a Transcript signed by the proper authority/dated. If it is not in English, it must be TRANSLATED into English by a duly authorized Translation agency.
- Once 30 days pass, the student's account will be "frozen" and the login in a state of suspension until the request is fulfilled. Students who are admitted into a course enter at their own risk of either a) no refund/removal OR b) a transfer to another course and related costs.
- No report card will be issued unless the official transcript and proper photo ID is submitted.
- The best course of action is to come fully prepared.
Students who enroll in TAC must be well versed in the use of the English Language, even when online. Once enrolled, each credit will be at the English level that is typical of a student of that age and credit grade level and credit level of study. E.g. Mathematics Gr. 11 MCR3U will be taught at the English level of a 16-17-year-old, grade 11 and at the higher “university” level of study. An appropriate and approved English Language Test at the student’s own expense may be requested by TAC at the student’s cost. The student may choose to do this independently.
The preferred tests are:
- TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language
- IELTS - International Eng. Lang Testing System
- CAEL - Canadian Academic English Language
- CTBS - Canadian Test of Basic Skills
The tests assess your English language proficiency for an academic setting. The TOEFL or IELTS will be requested by universities and colleges if a student has not studied English in an English language school for at least 3-4 years. Each college or university Admissions Department should be asked what the policy is for their institution.
