How to Apply

1. Choose Your Program

Explore our programs. Chances are, we’ve got what you’re looking for.

2. Learn about Admissions Requirements

Confirm your program’s admission requirements by consulting the SGS Calendar. Visit your graduate unit’s website to confirm application procedures and deadlines. Some requirements you should consider: prerequisite degrees and courses, minimum GPA, application deadlines, and confirmation of supervision

3. Prepare Your Application

Review all the admission requirements for your chosen program. Plan enough time to submit your application and all supporting documents before the deadline. Note that referees will only receive reference requests when you pay the application fee, so give your referees plenty of time to submit their references.

4. Apply Online

If you are applying to a program starting in Fall 2022 or later, apply through our new application system.

For programs starting in Winter or Summer 2022, continuing using our previous application system.

In both systems, you will create a personal profile and begin the submission. Set aside 30-60 minutes to create a personal profile on our online application system, including your personal information and academic history. Please note that you will not be able to make changes to this information after paying the application fee.
