Application Process

John Abbott & SRAM

John Abbott College is affiliated with le Service Régional d'Admission du Montréal Métropolitain (SRAM).  Applications must be submitted directly to SRAM online at:  https://sram.omnivox.ca

Applicants for the Fall semester can participate in a three-round application process, i.e.  a student has up to three different opportunities to have their file evaluated.  The deadlines to apply for the Fall semester is are March 1st for the first round, second and third round applications happen in mid-April and mid-May respectively.  Please note that some programs close after the first round of appliactions.  

The deadline to apply for the Winter semester is November 1stNOTE: Not every program has a winter start date. Check specific programs for winter admissions or verify the "table of available programs" while online with SRAM.  An application admission guide can be obtained from the Registrar's Office at John Abbott, via email: admissions@johnabbott.qc.ca, or through a high school guidance office.

How does SRAM Work?

SRAM does not evaluate an applicant’s file.  They simply ensure that all documents are received on time, open a file for the student, issue an ID number, calculate an overall average, and divide the applications by program.  Once this process is completed, SRAM sends the files to the appropriate colleges for evaluation.

Students can verify their application status online at http://sram.omnivox.ca.   Students who do not know their file number (student I.D.) can use the online search to obtain it.  You must use the same name and information indicated on your SRAM application.

How does the admission process work?

Applications received by the deadline are part of the first round (or group) of files that are evaluated.  If a student is admitted to the program in which they have applied in the first round, then the application process ends.  They are then sent an acceptance letter from the College with further instructions.

If a student is refused admission to the program to which they have applied, they then have two (or one in the case of winter admissions) other opportunities (the 2nd and 3rd rounds of evaluation) to be evaluated for admission.  It is important to note that space becomes extremely limited by the 3rd round.
