Process of admission

Dalhousie University will verify any information provided by the applicant, including letters of reference and transcripts. The initial application evaluation process is conducted by the SRES, who then makes their recommendation to the Faculty of Graduate Studies whereby the final decision is made and a formal offer of admission is signed and sent out by the Registrar of Dalhousie University.

Generally students will be advised by the end of March regarding their admission status.
