Applying early can make a difference. It allows time to ensure your application is complete and all documentation is received. And, some limited enrolment programs may offer early seats to qualified applicants. Programs only accept applications until they are filled. So don't wait – apply now!
You can apply online until 2 weeks before the start of the Summer and Fall semester, and 3 weeks before the start of the Winter semester (semesters start in September, January and May). After that, you must print out an application and bring it to the Registrar's Office along with the application fee (if applicable) and documents such as official transcripts.
You can generally apply up to 11 months in advance for a given semester on the first business day of the first month.
