Step 2 — Make sure you met your deadlines

Incoming Ontario secondary school students

  • June 2, 2014 was the deadline for accepting your offer through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre, as well as the deadline for completing your residence application and paying your residence deposit.
  • Many programs will allow you to accept late. Although the OUAC site will say your offer has ‘expired’, try accepting via ouac.on.ca. Contact 101apps@brocku.ca for more information.
  • If you did not complete your residence application and submit your residence deposit by June 2, 2014, you are no longer guaranteed a spot in residence. Please complete your application and make your deposit as soon as possible, as spots are filling quickly. For information on off-campus living, click here.

All other incoming students

  • Your offer deadline appears on your offer of admission, and you must accept by this date. If your deadline has passed and you have not accepted, please contact admissions@brocku.ca for more information.
  • If you were planning on staying in residence, and you did not complete your application and submit your residence deposit by June 2, 2014, time is running out.
