Well it depends on what type of technologist you are going to be, if it is a medical lab technician/technologist then there are a couple of Private Career Colleges that you can technically research such as Trios (please don’t shiver too much). However you can just research 3 community colleges and inform your Second Career counselor that you were unable to find a PCC to research and they would make a note of it for their service plan.
Simple answer yes. Long answer is that under the details of tuition in the Estimate of Financial Support form you will see it states College of Applied Arts and Technology – Actual Tuition Cost. Books are also separate from tuition so will be assessed separately. So yes go ahead and apply.
Child care is considered separately from the BLA and is from a separate pot of money outside of the $28,000 assigned to Second Career. In order to apply for it you will have to fill out the required forms (found here http://www.tcu.gov.on.ca/eng/eopg/progr ... areer.html) and provide details of who was responsible for day care costs over the past year and how you paid for them.
Technically speaking the earlier your application is submitted the better but as it will be submitted next week I don’t see why you wouldn’t receive notification from MTCU regarding your case prior to the start date. Also most colleges will only allow around 5 days after the official start date of the course for people to enter which gives a little bit of wiggle room but only a little.
Good luck with the rest of your application and I hope everything works out.
