Evergreen College: Toronto and Brampton campuses

When considering Evergreen College for your students, please remember that there are two different campus locations: Toronto and Brampton.

ApplyBoard recently received a call from Evergreen, telling us that many students are actually wanting Evergreen – Brampton, but choose the Toronto campus because they assume that Toronto includes Brampton. This miscommunication has caused a lot of confusion and trouble for Evergreen’s staff and new international students. Please remember that Toronto and Brampton are different cities and communicate this clearly to your interested students.
