 Tips and Considerations

  • You can apply to as many programs as you want, but you can only have an "Active" status in a maximum of three programs.
  • You can change your program by adding, deleting, and requesting a new program. Simply follow the dates and deadlines above.
  • Academic departments review and approve applications for Type 2 or 3 programs. 
    • A decision will be available on ACORN during the acceptance period.
    • If invited to a program, you can accept or refuse the invitation. By accepting, you will have an active status in the program.
    • If your application was unsuccessful, the result will show as refused.
  • You must have an active status either 1 Specialist; 2 Majors; or 1 Major and 2 Minors before course enrolment starts for the next session, or ACORN will block you from course enrolment.
    • If you are blocked, add Type 1 programs temporarily in order to add courses on ACORN. You are not required to take courses in this program, and can delete it after you add courses.
