The Admissions Office begins processing applications for the next academic year starting October 1. Don’t miss out! Ensure you meet our Application and Document Deadlines. We encourage you to apply and submit documents well ahead of these posted deadlines if possible.
We recommend that you apply as soon as possible in order to be eligible for scholarships and to begin to receive important information about the University and your first year.
We would be happy to answer your questions! Email the Admissions Office if you need further information prior to submitting your online application.
How To Apply:
- Complete and submit the online application and be sure to indicate all institutions attended/attending in your application. Almost all communications from the Admissions Office will be sent by email. Use an email account that you check regularly and add us to your safe-sender list.
- Submit the application fee with the application (non-refundable fee of $70.00 CAD for Canadian and Minnesota Applicants or $140.00 CAD for all other applications – this fee may change without notice).
- Have all requested documents sent to the Admissions Office by the Application Deadline. Admissions will email you a document request once an application is received, however, please note the application and document deadline are the same date, so documents will not be requested on or after the deadline. We encourage you to apply as early as possible ahead of posted deadlines. Review Canadian required documents or Review International required documents.
- Once all required documents and the application fee are received, the file will be evaluated and a decision on admissibility will be made.
- Decisions will be communicated via email and an Offer of Admission will be issued to eligible applicants.
