Edit Your Completed Application or Respond to Offers

  • Log in to your application to:
    • edit your information. Notify your guidance counsellor if your grades or other academic information are inaccurate.
    • add and withdraw program choices.
  • Many university programs reach capacity quickly. The later you change your program choices, the more likely it is that a program is closed and no longer accepting new applicants.
  • You will receive a confirmation number when you successfully submit your application changes and/or respond to an offer of admission.
  • Expect to receive either an offer of admission or a refusal from the universities you applied to by the end of May.
  • Respond to offers of admission by the deadline the university included in the offer details. The earliest date you may be required to respond to an offer is June 1.

Next Steps

  • Visit your selected universities and/or the universities’ websites. University open houses, campus visits and virtual tours are great ways to experience what campus life is like and can help you decide which university is the best fit for you.
