*In some instances, domestic applications will be accepted after the application deadline. In that case, the program's intake status will remain open.

Applying for more than one program

You can select up to two programs per application – both must be the same application type and for the same term.

The first program chosen will be your first preference, and the next program will be your second preference. Any subsequent application(s) submitted will be considered your next preference(s).

The order of your preferences cannot be re-prioritized after applications are submitted — review your program choices carefully before you apply. 
All additional applications will be cancelled if you’re offered a seat in your first preference. We will evaluate the next available choice if you are waitlisted or declined in your first preference. 

If you submit multiple applications for the same program in the same term, we will review the initial application and delete the rest.

The following programs are excluded from application preferences due to the nature of their admission process:
