Supplementary Document Submission
- Dramatic Arts applicants: successful participation in the DART Invitational
Auditions must be booked directly with the relevant department ONLY AFTER you are in receipt of an offer of admission. Audition dates are indicated in the offer of admission letter. DART Invitational events are normally held in the third week of April and mid-May.
- Music applicants: successful participation in an audition
Auditions must be booked directly with the relevant department ONLY AFTER you are in receipt of an offer of admission. Audition dates are indicated in the offer of admission letter. For details regarding the audition process and dates refer to www.brocku.ca/music/ .
General Admission Notes
Applicants can expect to receive an offer of admission to only one program. When more than one Brock program is indicated on the application, the highest choice listed for Brock will be considered first. If not eligible for the first choice, consideration will be given to subsequent choices in the order of preference the applicant has indicated. If an applicant applies to only one Brock program, and does not qualify, in most cases consideration will automatically be given for an alternate and related program.
Category B applicants normally are limited to General Studies – Social Sciences, General Studies – Humanities, or General Studies – Science during their first year of study.
Applications are assessed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Admissions decisions will only be made once all required documents are submitted; therefore Category B applicants should consider registering in and writing an SAT or ACT as early as possible during the application cycle (if required).
Applicants for whom English is a second language must submit evidence of English language proficiency.
It is the responsibility of all applicants to ensure that:
- all pertinent academic documentation is forwarded directly to the Office of the Registrar directly from the secondary school,
- proof of change of name (marriage certificate, notarized statement or other legal document) is provided if academic documents show a name other than that under which application is made,
- applicants withholding, misrepresenting or failing to provide information regarding previous university or college records are liable to have their admission revoked and registration cancelled.
