    Admissions FAQ

    We’ve collected some of our most common questions from undergraduate applicants below to help you plan and prepare.

    Refer to our list of Helpful Terms for additional clarification, or get in touch with our team if you still have questions – we’re happy to help.

    All Applicants

    The deadline for Ontario high school students to submit their application for admission to Fall (September) 2024 is January 15, 2024. For all other students the deadline for guaranteed consideration is February 1, 2024. Please note that we will continue to accept and assess applications after the February 1 deadline until each program is full. To ensure adequate time to apply for a study permit (if applicable) we recommend you apply as early as possible. Visit our Application Deadlines webpage for details.

    Undergraduate applications are typically assessed within six weeks, once all required documents are received by the admissions team. If you have any questions about your application, visit I’ve Applied page for information about required documents.

    Shortly after you submit your application, you will receive an acknowledgment e-mail from York University, providing you with a York Student Number to track your application status in our applicant portal, MyFile. If you have not received a student number within 4-5 business days of submitting your application, please check your spam and junk folders and be sure to add info@yorku.cato your Safe Senders list.

    Depending on when you applied, you may see a blank status if your application is pending assessment. Please ensure your application is complete to avoid assessment delays and continue checking the status of your application on your MyFile account.

    Being waitlisted for admission means that while you have met all of the minimum admission requirements, your chosen competitive program of interest has reached capacity at this time. We continue to monitor the waitlist and will grant offers as space becomes available. 

    Please continue to check MyFile for any update to the status of your application(s).

     

    Kindly note that it may take 4-5 business days for your MyFile account to be active. If, after this length of time, you are still unable to log in please e-mail study@yorku.ca.
