You must submit your request for special consideration, including any supporting documentation by May 15, 2024, for September intake.

Offers of Admission

Program Choice, Order and Alternative Offers

You can expect to receive an offer of admission to only 1 program. When you indicate more than 1 Brock program in your application, we will consider you for the top choice you listed at Brock first. 

  • If you are not eligible for your first choice, we will consider subsequent choices in the order of preference you indicated in your application.
  • If you apply to only 1 Brock program and do not qualify, we will consider you for a related alternative program.

If you receive a revised offer to your preferred (top choice) program, your earlier offer and acceptance of that offer will be cancelled. You must accept your new offer in your OUAC application to secure your space.

Any change in your program choices, whether initiated by Brock or by yourself (i.e., if you change your program order), will require a response from you in your OUAC application. Check your application regularly for changes and do not forget to accept new offers if your offer changes. Email Brock Admissions if you have questions about your program selection or offer.

You may change the order of your program selection in your OUAC application at any time. After May 1, 2024, email Brock Admissions about any changes you make to your program selections. Check your OUAC application regularly to ensure your school has provided all active registration and grades.

If you are currently studying in the Ontario high school curriculum

Your school will provide your grades to the OUAC, who then provides the grades to Brock.

Check your OUAC application regularly to ensure all active registration and grades are showing on your account. As new grades are provided, we will automatically reconsider you for your top choice until May 1, 2024

If you are not studying in the Ontario high school curriculum

You may be able to order your transcripts in your OUAC application. In some cases, you may need to order official transcripts from the issuing institution and have them sent directly to Brock.

We will make admission decisions once we receive all required documents and your file is complete. 


Accessibility Services

If you require special accommodation and have not already identified yourself during the application process, it is important to contact Student Accessibility Services immediately upon receiving an offer to arrange for required accommodations.
