Step 2 – Review program requirements, deadlines, and contact the program area

This is a critical step because:

  • admission requirements vary by program
  • application deadlines and entry dates vary by program; some programs accept applications year-round while others only allow entry once every one or two years
  • application procedures vary; some programs require you to identify a potential supervisor before applying and some departments may require different documentation at different stages of the application process
Step 3 – Apply Online

After consultation, applicants complete the central graduate studies online application. The application takes at least 60 minutes to complete. A $135 CAD application fee is required. Waiver requests will not be accepted. To apply online, click HERE.

Please note: Documents or application information sent directly to programs for admissions are ONLY reviewed once the applicant has submitted their application through the Application Portal.

Please apply two weeks prior to the deadline date to allow referees sufficient time to upload letters. All components of the application must be received by the application deadline.
