Good to know:

  • You can apply to as many programs as you want, but you can only have an "Active" status in a maximum of three programs (so you will need to decide which ones to keep).
  • You can change your program by adding, deleting, and requesting a new program. Simply follow the dates and deadlines above.
  • Type 1 programs will be immediately Active.

  • If you are requesting Type 2 or 3 programs, your application will be reviewed by the academic department, and a decision will be available on ACORN during the acceptance period. If invited to a program, you can accept it to confirm your enrolment in the program and have an Active status. You can also refuse the invitation. If your request was unsuccessful, the result will show as Refused.

  • You must be active in a minimum program combination (4.0 credits completed or expected) before course enrolment starts for the next session, or you won’t be able to add courses on ACORN. 

  • If you haven’t gotten into your intended program(s) yet, add Type 1 programs temporarily (you don’t have to take courses in this subject, and you can delete the program later), and keep working towards your goal.
