PTI is committed to respecting the rights of individuals and ensuring that each student is afforded an academic environment that has been developed on the principles of equal and equitable access, respect for individual differences and academic integrity. PTI recognizes that it has a duty to provide academic accommodations to all individuals or groups as identified within the Alberta Human Rights Code. Students from all of these groups are welcomed to PTI, and assisted in accessing college services, programs, and facilities. PTI, where reasonable, removes barriers and provide opportunities to students in accordance with their distinct needs, within the limits of its resources and without compromising academic standards and principles.
This policy applies to the special needs of the following groups, as identified within the Alberta Human Rights Code:
- Ancestry, including colour and perceived race

Individual criteria for a program of study must be met. An interview with a Peerless College representative and a review of all required admission material must be complete prior to consideration of acceptance into a Peerless College International program.
Confirmation of equivalencies may be necessary prior to admission. This can be completed by using the World Education Services (WES) or the International Qualifications Assessment Services (QAS).
Applicants who will be considered on the basis of their high school credentials must have good standing in a minimum of five subjects in their final year (grade 12 or 13) of senior secondary school. Have appropriate high school documents and all credentials. All credentials need to meet approval by WES.
A student's final standing in a course will be determined by achievement throughout the term or level, taking into account evaluation measures such as tests and examinations, laboratory work, essays, reports and projects, clinical and practicum experience where applicable. Evaluation methods will be included with course outlines students receive at the beginning of each course. Students unable to meet established deadlines are responsible for making alternative arrangements with their Instructors prior to the deadline. Changes to deadlines will be granted at the discretion of the Instructor. Subject to the above, assignments submitted after established deadlines will receive a reduced or failing grade. In some courses, students may be wholly or partially evaluated by individuals not in the employ of the college, e.g. work practicum courses and business project course(s). In such instances, a member of the college staff will work with such non-college individuals, and take ultimate responsibility for recording and reporting of grades, and responding to any questions raised with respect to these grades. The Program Coordinator and Director must approve all extensions to program completion time.
Grading System - The Grading System applies to all courses offered. The level of a student's achievement in each course of a program will be denoted by a percentage.
