Application Dates + Deadlines

Applications to the MLIS program are accepted from September to January, with admitted students beginning their studies the following September (Fall Term). We have one application intake and one start term per year. 

It is highly recommended that prospective students begin their application well in advance of the application deadline.

Incomplete applications will be denied.
