Canadian Admissions Guide
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 would be happy to answer your questions! Email the Admissions Office if you need further information prior to submitting your online application.
Steps to Becoming a Brandon University Student
- Complete and submit the online application indicating all institutions attended or currently attending on the application form.
- Submit the application fee.
- Admissions will email you a document request once your 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. Have all official documents, as requested via email, sent to the Admissions Office by the Application Deadline.
- Once all required documents and the application fee are received, your file will be evaluated and a decision on admissibility will be made.
- Students will be notified of the decision via email and an Offer of Admission will be issued to eligible applicants.
Almost all communications from the Admissions Office will be sent electronically by email. When applying, use an email account that you check regularly and add us to your safe-sender list.
If someone will be assisting you with the application process and you wish for the Admissions Office to release information to that person, please fill out the Admissions Consent Form
Official documents refer to all documents sent directly from high school or post-secondary institution in a sealed envelope. Applicants may send an official transcript to the Admissions Office or submit the document in person, providing the official transcript remains in the original sealed envelope from the institution.
Documents in a language other than English must be accompanied with a notarized English translation. The certified translator must indicate in writing they received the transcripts in a sealed envelope.
English language proficiency is required for permanent residents of Canada and international students. Students can be exempted from this requirement if they either are a citizen of an exempt country, or meet one of our English proficiency waivers. If you believe you meet one of our waivers, then you must notify us of which waiver you believe you meet (to be added to your application) by emailing Admissions@BrandonU.ca. Citizens of exempt countries are flagged automatically upon application.
English language proficiency results must be mailed directly from the Testing Centre, except TOEFL which may also be sent electronically directly through TOEFL (ETS) if preferred.
The Admissions Office may require a scanned copy of supporting documents such as a marriage certificate, birth certificate, driver’s license, or passport to confirm name change or proof of age. Do not mail originals.
