International and United States Application Steps
Brock University welcomes students from around the world, and encourages applications from a variety of academic backgrounds. International students applying for September entry may be considered for all academic programs, scholarships and guaranteed residence. Applications and all supporting documentation should be submitted no later than April 1 for international applicants and June 1 for U.S. applicants, as program availability cannot be guaranteed after this date. Applicants should refer to the ‘Admission Deadlines’ link for special program deadlines as well as other important information related to the application process.

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.
Applications are assessed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Admissions decisions will only be made once all required documents are submitted.
Applicants for whom English is a second language must submit evidence of English language Proficiency. This requirement will be included in the acknowledgement email that will be sent once we receive the application. An admissions decision will only be made once a successful test result, and all other required documentation has been submitted.
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.
Choosing the Correct Application
Ontario has a centralized Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) where all applications are processed and distributed to individual universities for assessment. Where you are currently studying, or have studied in the past will dictate which application you use. For a full list of applications available to you, refer to http://www.brocku.ca/registrar/admissions.
- Submit the 105F application form, with appropriate fees to OUAC (see OUAC for fee details).
- Submit official transcripts showing secondary school, college or university results as appropriate. The official transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution to Brock University, Office of the Registrar (Admissions).
- Applicants for whom English is a second language must submit evidence of English language proficiency. Notarized copies of test results are NOT acceptable.
United States secondary school applicants:
American citizens currently attending a secondary school in the U.S., or graduates holding a secondary school diploma (and no post-secondary schooling) apply using the OUAC 105F application at www.ouac.on.ca.
Canadian citizens or permanent residents currently attending a secondary school in the U.S., or graduates holding a secondary school diploma (and no post-secondary schooling) apply using the OUAC 105D application at www.ouac.on.ca
Conditional offers may be extended based on a combination of second or third quarter grades therefore it is in the best interest of applicants to have grades forwarded as soon as second quarter results are available.

Applicants from British patterned schools or IB programs may submit predicted grades for consideration.
Advanced Placement (AP) applicants:
Applicants are required to submit AP results as part of a secondary school diploma. International secondary school applicants completing AP credits use the OUAC 105F application, while Canadian citizens or permanent residents should use the OUAC 105D application at www.ouac.on.ca.
