Students who do not apply to the SdS they can apply to a participating college and may be considered under the program if they meet specific criteria. Application submission under the SDS is at the discretion of each participating college. Students interested in submitting applications under the program are encouraged to contact the participating college of their choice for information.

Essential to the program feedback mechanism is the student’s consent for the institution to provide information on attendance.
