How to Apply to a Program

Program Admission Requirements

Students wishing to complete a program offered by the Faculty of Extension, must submit a completed Application for Admission form and provide any related documentation required for that program. Admission requirements vary based on the program. Please check individual program pages for more information.

Students who do not meet the admission requirements are invited to apply for program admission on a provisional basis. This is a temporary classification which requires the student to complete their first two graded courses and maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. Students who do not meet the provisional admission requirements after their second course should contact their program advisor.

Students who do not formally apply for admission to their selected program offered by the Faculty of Extension will not be eligible to graduate.


Admission FAQs

  • Am I able to audit a course?

    Once your enrolment status has been set to Audit, students cannot revert back to credit status.

    Audited courses will display on your Faculty of Extension transcript as 'AU, Registered as an Auditor.'
