How to apply

Students applying to the Faculty of Arts & Science must choose one admission category on their application, identifying the area of study they want to pursue. At the end of first year, students choose a program of study, or a combination of programs from different categories.

EEB programs are Type 1 Programs. Type 1 programs have no enrolment requirements other than successful completion of four full-course equivalents (4.0 credits). No application is required so you can add our programs anytime within the program enrolment period, if you have 4.0 credits.

For more information about programs and how to add them, please visit the Program Toolkit on Sidney Smith Commons.

If you have specific questions about applying please contact the Arts & Science Recruitment Team at
