    I am currently a student in Manitoba. So yes, the study permit was issued based on a acceptence letter.
    The CIC site says: "You may change your school, program and/or field of study without applying for a new study permit. You do not need to apply for a change to the condition of your study permit, either. You may continue to use your study permit as long as it is valid".
    Unfortunetly Toronto is far away from Winnipeg. I've sent today many letters to different persons responsible for internationals. Hope tomorrow will get a reply

    PS: I am already conditionally accepted by Georgian College, but I need to take that HOAE exam next week. So Centennial would be my backup plan, plan "B" )

    Glad you have checked things out as many times we see people who haven't done their research. Best of luck

    God, I still can't find what else will be included in the Skills Assessment test..
    The international department, as usually, does not reply..
    It is a computerized test that will assess your reading and comprehension. It will not affect your admissions but will determine which English course you will be enrolled in.

    The international department woke up. Here what I got from them:
    "There will be a mathematics and English placement test"
    Ok, gone refreshing Math knowledge...

    I just wanted to jump onto this thread. I'll be starting RPN flex in September 2013. I'm really excited but also a bit nervous.

    I've already take developmental psychology online and my elective GNED (perspective on human sexuality) I'm taking online now too.

    I start global citizenship GNED 500 on May 7th and Comm 170 in July.

    My goal is to lighten my course load as much as possible (I have two small children) and I'd like to get a part time job as well.

    Is anyone else starting RPN flex at centennial in September ?

    Thats great you're getting a head start on the electives. Since you are taking these courses before you starting practical nursing, will they be counted in your GPA for practical nursing? I am sure they will be counted towards your cummulative GPA but I'm just curious if they will be counted within the program GPA because these electives are great program boosters and at some colleges electives taken outside the program duration are not counted towards the program GPA calculation.

    Hey Toronto Nurse

    I believe the classes I'm taking in advance will be counted towards my GPA. Or at least that's the impression I got.

    Three of the classes I'm taking now are mandatory, the fourth is my elective.

    I'll speak to the school to confirm though. Thanks for letting me know to look into it
