Welcome to Goodman (Next Steps for new students)

Congratulations and welcome to Goodman!

As a newly admitted student, you will have many questions about your offer of admission. The information on this page will help you understand your offer of admission and the next steps. 

Admission letter 

Admission letters are issued by the Faculty of Graduate Studies on the recommendation of the Goodman School of Business. Admission letters are typically uploaded to your my.brocku.ca account within 2 weeks of you receiving your emailed notification from Goodman. 

Accepting your offer of admission 

After receiving your decision letter, you will have 3 weeks to reply to our offer of admission. Please accept or decline our offer through your my.brocku.ca account.

If you accept our offer of admission and are in the MBA, MAcc, MBA (ISP), IMAcc or GDBA program, then you will be required to submit a non-refundable tuition deposit to hold your spot. Details of the tuition deposit will be included in your letter.

Please note that your tuition deposit will not show up as a charge on your financial history: you are able to pay the deposit as soon as you accept our offer of admission. You can submit your tuition deposit by certified cheque, money order or online banking. 

Certified cheques and money orders should be payable to Brock University and can be mailed to:
Graduate Programs Office
Goodman School of Business
Brock University
500 Glenridge Ave
St. Catharines, ON
L2S 3A1  (Canada)

Online payment of deposits can be done using online banking or Western Union bank transfers. Please refer to the Finance and Administrative Services Office's website for information on online banking and Western Union.

 

Final Documents

Students accepting their offer of admission will need to provide official documents to finalize their admission. The documents that need to be submitted are listed as "Owing to Finalize Admission" on your my.brocku.ca account in the Document Status section. Official final documents can be dropped off in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in the Mackenzie Chown Building, D Block, Room 250 or can be mailed to:

Faculty of Graduate Studies
Brock University
500 Glenridge Ave
St. Catharines, ON
L2S 3A1  (Canada)

 

Graduate Portal

You currently have an account in the Graduate Portal as a prospective student. Once you accept our offer of admission, your Graduate Portal account will be converted to that of a current student and you will have direct access to your academic advisor and other current student tools. You will be notified when your account has been changed from prospective student to current student. Once your Graduate Portal account has been changed, you will use your Brock credentials to login (Campus ID example: ab12cd and password. These credentials are the same as the ones used to log in to your my.brocku.ca account). There is no need to create a duplicate portal account until you receive notification that your account has been changed. 

 

Registration

If you are an MBA, MAcc or MSc student, you will be provided with information about how to proceed with registering for courses once you have accepted your offer, paid your deposit and your account has been transferred to that of a current student. Depending on the time of year that you are admitted, registration may or may not be open yet for the subsequent terms. Registration for the Spring term typically opens in March. Registration for Fall/Winter terms typically opens in July. You will receive additional email instructions about registration closer to the start of the registration period.

If you are an MBA (ISP) or IMAcc student, you will not be registering until you arrive on campus in August for the start of your program. Specific registration instructions will be provided to you at that time.

 

Brock Email 

As a Brock student, all official communications will be sent to your Brock email account. Once you have accepted our offer, please check your Brock email and your personal email regularily as we phase in the use of your Brock account for all communications. Once you are a registered student, Brock will only send email to your Brock email account.
