Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Education – Connected program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by degree)

General information

The Connected program allows our students to apply for advanced acceptance into a Consecutive Education program. Acceptance is dependent on GPA and subject specialization requirements. The Connected program is available for both the Primary/Junior (Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6) and Intermediate/Senior (Grade 7 to 12) programs. The program allows students to participate in education seminars, visit classes and discover if a career in education is right for them. Students will be encouraged to meet faculty, current teacher candidates and graduates to gain a better understanding of the teaching profession and the multiple career paths one can pursue with a Bachelor of Education degree.

Admission requirements

Applications to the Connected program will be accepted in the winter semester of students’ second or third year of studies in an undergraduate program at our university. This program will have limited space and applications are considered on a competitive basis based on GPA. Successful applicants will be notified by the Office of the Registrar by the end of May after the term of application. Students in their final year of study are not eligible for the Connected program and must apply to the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC).

During the fall semester of the students’ final year of study, the Faculty of Education will determine which students completed sufficient modules in the Connected program to continue into the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program. Eligible students must present a GPA of 2.7 in their best 20 courses (for P/J and I/S) and a GPA of 2.7 in each teachable subject (for I/S) to gain admission into the Consecutive Bachelor of Education program.
