Parents, guardians, spouses, aunts, uncles, grandparents all play an important role in helping their loved ones choose a college that is right for them.

March Break Open House

At Algonquin College’s Waterfront Campus, we have created this portal to assist parents and families with learning more about college policies, financial aid for students, campus safety, and the overall experience a student can expect to have when they enroll at the campus. Please have a look at the tabs and drop-down menus above.

We encourage you to peruse the rest of our Pembroke Campus website including the Student Support Services and Campus Services web pages.

In addition, the Programs pages will give you additional information about all our full-time programs including curriculum, approximate tuition, books and supply costs, and other important information such as handbooks, gear lists, immunization requirements, etc.


You can also sign-up for our Parents’ & Families’ Newsletter!

Algonquin College, Tour t-shirts for future students & supports

“We attended a campus tour and I just wanted to pass along our positive feedback.  The staff tour guide was excellent at presenting the information in an informative, friendly manner – answered all of our questions fully, and we also were able to meet the coordinator of the program too, who was also most helpful and encouraging.  Our son is looking forward to attending the college. Keep up the good work. The campus is so bright and clean too!”

– Kathy Young, parent of a future Waterfront Campus student
