I've applied, what's next?

Now that you've submitted your application, there are a number of steps you can complete while you're waiting for your admission decision.

Follow the steps below

Step 1: Check your application status

We'll keep you updated on your application status through Dal Online, including any missing documentation or outstanding fees. The status of your application on Dal Online is the most up to date information we have.

Please check back regularly for updates and to avoid missing any important deadlines.

Step 2: Plan your finances

It’s important to start planning how you will finance your education. When making your plan, consider both your educational costs and living expenses. Start planning now:

Step 3: Book a virtual campus tour

Since a visit to our campus isn’t possible at the moment, we'd love to host you for an online campus tour webinar. These sessions will be hosted by one of our student tour guides and a Dalhousie admissions advisor!

Visit dal.ca/campustours to register for a webinar and to watch a virtual tour video.

Step 4: Attend an online information session

We host a variety of webinars to get you ready to become part of the Dalhousie community! You’ll have a chance to ask questions about living in Halifax, academics, residence, support services and anything else you’re wondering about. Check out our upcoming information sessions.

Step 5: Stay in touch

We'll share important dates and deadlines with you via the email you included on your application. Make sure you've listed admissions@dal.ca as a safe sender to avoid official communications ending up in your spam folder.

Continue to check your inbox and spam folders regularly to avoid missing any information.
