Please take note that when applying for your study permit, you must provide our DLI number along with our Letter of Acceptance, which will confirm the number as well.
Our programs are very popular (often become waitlisted months prior to the start date), we recommend applying from six to twelve months in advance of your anticipated start date. Please contact the International Education Department prior to submitting an application to confirm seat availability. Applicants are responsible for ensuring they obtain a valid study permit prior to the start of their program. All international students must submit a copy of their valid study permit to the International Education Department no later than five business days prior to their program New Student Orientation. Failure to do so may result in an automatic withdrawal and loss of the non-refundable fees.
