How to Apply: 

Undergraduate Application Process

Review the steps below.

  • Choose your first-choice and second-choice programs
  • Check your admission requirements
  • Complete your online application based on your most recent studies
  • Review the checklist of items required in addition to your application

Graduate Application Process:

Follow these steps before you apply for grad studies. Admissions to graduate programs are highly competitive, as there are a limited number of spaces. There is no general right of admission, so it’s best to be as prepared as possible.

  • Ensure you meet admission requirements for the Faculty of Graduate Studies and your program.
  • Review the application deadlines for your graduate program.
  • Plan 2-6 months to prepare required documents. International students may need longer.

Required documents

Official transcripts

You must arrange to have official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions that you have attended, even if you did not graduate, sent in a sealed envelope to your graduate program from the issuing university. You can upload unofficial documents to your online application.

Curriculum vitae

Some master’s and doctoral programs require a current version of your curriculum vitae.

Reference letters

Contact your referees and ask if they would provide a letter in support of your application. It is customary to give them at least one month’s notice.

Study proposal

A study proposal provides a clear description of the research or study area that you would like to pursue. Many successful applicants take approximately one month to research and write the proposal.

Writing sample

Some graduate programs require a writing sample. A sample must be something you have written yourself, independently in an undergraduate or graduate class.

Standardized tests

Check your program requirements to know which tests you will need to take and the minimum score required to be considered for admission. The time to schedule and successfully complete these tests varies, and so you will need to plan accordingly.

Document translation

If your original documents are not in English, you must request a second set of documents to be given to a translator for a notarized word-for-word English translation. Send the translated copy to your graduate program in addition to your official documents.

Program documents

After you submit your online application, you will receive an email with your UCID number and instructions on how to access your Student Centre, where you will find a to-do list for providing program-specific supporting documents.
