Find Your Application Deadlines

We encourage students to apply at least 3 to 4 months before their desired Start Term. You may start in Fall (September), Winter (January) or Spring (May).

International applicants: We recommend applying as early as possible to allow enough processing time for admission and visa or study permit applications.  Deadlines are:

  • Fall (September)     June 1
  • Winter (January)     September 15
  • Spring (May)          February 1

ALL APPLICANTS:  Late applications may be accepted, but we cannot guarantee that your file will be processed by the start of classes for the Term you want. Don't worry if you miss a deadline though, because if you don't start classes in Fall (September), you can start in Winter (January). Official Letters of Acceptance and Offers of Admission are issued for 2 start terms.
