Columbia Announces New Guaranteed Admission Agreement with University of Waterloo

Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, March 24, 2010 --( Columbia International College is pleased to announce another step forward to insure its graduates with university placement by signing an agreement with the Faculty of Science of the University of Waterloo.

Through the agreement signed on Mar 8, 2010, the University of Waterloo’s Faculty of Science offers guaranteed admission to Columbia graduates who meet the minimum admission requirements.
