To be considered for September admission you must submit your application by January 31 at the latest. Your referees will be prompted to submit a recommendation letter once you submit your application. They have until February 15 to submit the letter but often referees need several reminders from you before they act. For that reason, please submit your application early and do not forget to follow up with the referees to make sure they submit a recommendation.
For MASc and PhD applicants to be considered for January admission they must submit the application by June 30 at the latest. The referees will be prompted to submit a recommendation letter once you submit your application and they have until July 15 to submit the recommendation. PLEASE NOTE: You should think twice before applying for January admission; we rarely admit students for January without the explicit recommendation of individual faculty members who have communicated with the applicant.
We no longer accept any applications for May admission. In rare circumstances it is possible for PhD students to be admitted in May but they must apply for September or January admission and later - after the admissions offer letter is issued - change the start date to May.
** We consider MEng applications for September admission only. **
