Applying During the COVID-19 Pandemic
We understand this is a stressful time for students preparing for post-secondary studies. School closures and exam delays are affecting both high school and post-secondary students around the world, and there is uncertainty about the extent of disruption we will all face before normal activities can resume. We will continue to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the school year and will be as flexible as possible throughout the admission process. As specific questions arise throughout the year we will update this page.
