Though some programs may continue to accept applications after the admission deadline, we highly recommend international students submit their application by the deadline as we cannot guarantee an admission decision in sufficient time to obtain a study permit otherwise.

Unless a program is still accepting applications past the deadline, online applications for January semester close on May 1 and for May and September semesters close on December 15. If you do not see the program you are applying to in the application menu and have questions, please contact graduate-admissions@unbc.ca.
