Applicants are advised that Canadian government processing of visa applications may take several months. It is recommended that international students apply at least 6-8 months prior to the semester in which they desire admission.

Admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies is by letter of offer from the Dean of Graduate Studies.

A decision to admit or not to admit is made by the Dean on the basis of a recommendation received from an academic unit, together with the documents required for admission.

A decision may be reconsidered upon the request of either the applicant or the academic unit if further information is offered.

Applicants who have not been admitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies may upgrade their qualifications and reapply. A subsequent decision would be made on the basis of a further recommendation from the academic unit and the updated file.
