Step 1: Decide which program you would like to apply for.

Explore our program offerings below.

Some things to note:

  • All students participate in Foundation Studies in their first year, regardless of their program selection. Foundation Studies is not a separate program.
  • A limited number of seats are available for students to be admitted without selecting a preferred program (Undeclared). Students who apply and are accepted as Undeclared apply to a first- and second-choice program during the second term of their Foundation Year. Admission is based on GPA and availability of seats in the program. There is no guarantee of acceptance into a major of choice when applying to a major entering second year.
