Application Deadlines

See ‘Admissions Deadlines’ for details.

 
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.
