Step 1: Choose your program

Browse the range of programs and courses and find a program that fits your interests.

Take note of key details, including start dates, application deadlines, and program type (competitive vs. first qualified, first offered).

Step 2: Meet the admission requirements

Review the admission requirements for your chosen program to make sure you meet them. Find this information on your program’s Program Details page. Remember meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to all programs.

If you have education from outside of Canada, you may be required to have your credentials assessed by the International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES) to ensure equivalency. Learn more about International Credential Evaluation Services

Missing or in-progress requirements?

If you have any in-progress courses, you can apply using your midterm grades.  Learn how to apply using your midterm grades

You also have several options to help you qualify for your chosen program, even if you don’t meet the admission requirements initially. 

If you don’t meet the published admission requirements, you might still qualify for your chosen program through our alternate admissions pathway. This option values individuals whose work experience, non-formal education, cultural knowledge, and other relevant experiences have prepared them for their chosen program.
