Competitive programs at Fanshawe College

Fanshawe offers well over 225 different programs that are open access – meaning if you apply by February 1 and meet the admission requirements, we will give you an offer of admission. The programs below are competitive – meaning that we are unable to accept all eligible applicants. The data shown is from the applications for Fall 2021 – these are estimates and each year the applicant pool changes – which could change the competitiveness of a program. Transcripts will need to be received by February 21 in order to be considered for competitive programs.
