What You Will Need:

About 30 to 45 Minutes

Allow yourself 30 to 45 minutes to complete the online application. In order to submit an application to a graduate program, you must first create an account using your email address as your username. This account will allow you to save your application and continue it at a later date, as well as work on multiple applications at the same time.

For security reasons, you'll be automatically logged out of the application if you take more than 45 minutes on any one page. If this happens, you'll have to to resume your application by clicking on the Un-Submitted link at the left hand navigation bar. Applications that aren't completed within 28 days are deleted from the system.

A Credit Card (Visa or Mastercard) or Canadian Debit Card

A non-refundable application fee is required for each program to which you apply. The online application requires payment by Visa or Mastercard, and also accepts Interac/debit payments from individuals with banking accounts at Scotiabank, TD Canada Trust, Royal Bank of Canada or Bank of Montreal.

The application fee is waived for international applicants whose citizenship and correspondence address are located in the world's 50 least developed countries, as declared by the United Nations. For more information, see Application Fees. If you are eligible for the fee waiver, you will not be asked for a fee when you complete the online application.

Students applying to graduate programs in the Department of Chemistry are not required to pay an application fee. The fee is paid for by the department. This occurs automatically when you submit your application.

Technical Requirements

This application also requires that your web browser has 'cookies' enabled. Web servers use cookies (tiny text files of less than 255 characters) to store very basic information on your computer. Without this information, the security functions of the application can't determine who you are, or allow you access to certain pages or areas on the site. Cookies aren't a threat to security; they aren't visible to any server except the server that set them.
