The following are general guidelines:

1. Our program admits new students once a year in September and there are no Winter Term admissions.

2. Applicants who submit all required documentation by mid-January will be given first consideration for admission. Completed applications received after this date will be considered as part of a rolling admission cycle until the program admission formally closes before September (announcements will be made via website information).

3. Admitted applicants will be requested to pay deposits to confirm acceptance, the amount of which is non-refundable, due to any circumstances.

4. There are no roll-over policies for admission applications.  This means admission status of an application will not be carried on to the following year. Similarly, applications to each of our programs will not be applied to any other programs within the department.
