General admission information

Please view all Admission Requirements to see if you meet the necessary criteria before applying.

The deadline to apply for our fall enrolment is January 15. If January 15 falls on a weekend, applications are due the next business day.

THESIS APPLICANTS should contact faculty members whose research is of interest to discuss potential thesis topics. Applicants should initiate contact as early as possible and well before the application deadline.

Instructions for how to apply are detailed on our Admission Procedures page. All related admission forms can also be found there.

Candidates must specify the field (audiology or speech-language pathology) to which they are applying. Therefore, candidates should already be familiar with the two professions before submitting their file. Candidates may apply to both programs; however, they must submit two separate and complete applications. Successful applicants will only be admitted to one program and are not permitted to change their program of study once they have been accepted into a program.

Please carefully read all Admission Information including our Frequently Asked Questions before contacting our offices. All admission inquiries should be made by email only and can be sent to
