Graduate Studies

After You’ve Applied

Now that you’ve applied, what’s next?

Application Acknowledgement

Once you have submitted your online application, you will receive an email confirming your application has been successfully submitted within the next few days. The email will contain important information about how to access Mosaic to follow the status of your application and your checklist of required documents.

Application Assessment Period

Applicants can check their application status online anytime, after their application has been submitted, by logging into the Mosaic system. The admissions process varies for each applicant and program and the School of Graduate Studies cannot provide specific dates for admission decisions.

If you have questions about the status of your application, contact the program to which you are applying. Program information is available online.

NOTE: If you have submitted all of the required documentation and the application status indicates “Required,” the program office staff may not have had the opportunity to update your status due to high application volumes.
