Get ready to experience Georgian! With committed faculty, a focus on hands-on learning, and a great culture, we think Georgian is right for you. If you agree, here are your next steps.

Step 1: Accept your offer

What if my offer is conditional?

You can still accept your offer! Before you can start your program, you’ll need to meet requirements, complete courses or upgrading, or send in documents. For example, high school students need to complete their last few classes, and mature applicants may need to complete testing requirements. Check out your academic dashboard to see what you need to do.

  • September 2019 start: June 17, 2019

How to get course exemptions
