International and United States Application Steps

International and United States Application Steps

Brock University welcomes students from around the world, and encourages applications from a variety of academic backgrounds. International students applying for September entry may be considered for all academic programs, scholarships and guaranteed residence. Applications and all supporting documentation should be submitted no later than April 1 for international applicants and June 1 for U.S. applicants, as program availability cannot be guaranteed after this date. Applicants should refer to the ‘Admission Deadlines’ link for special program deadlines as well as other important information related to the application process.

General Admission Notes

Applicants can expect to receive an offer of admission to only one program. When more than one Brock program is indicated on the application, the highest choice listed for Brock will be considered first. If not eligible for the first choice, consideration will be given to subsequent choices in the order of preference the applicant has indicated. If an applicant applies to only one Brock program, and does not qualify, in most cases consideration will automatically be given for an alternate and related program.

Applications are assessed on a first-come, first-serve basis. Admissions decisions will be made once all required documents are submitted.

Choosing the Correct Application
Process for applying:

  1. Submit application.
  2. Brock will send an acknowledgement email outlining required documents necessary for assessment and instructions for signing into your personal portal at
  3.  Sign into your personal portal at
  4. Forward all supporting documentation** including academic transcripts directly to the Office of the Registrar – Admissions.
  5. Check your portal at on a regular basis to see if documents have arrived and/or if a decision has been made.
  6. Accept your offer using the instructions in your offer letter.
  7. If applicable, apply for residence.
  8. Register in your classes (beginning in June).

*For the purpose of assessment, Brock will accept unofficial transcripts/mark sheets/report cards. However, offers of admission that are based on unofficial documents will be conditional upon submission of final, official documents sent directly from the issuing institution. Furthermore, you should be aware that some Ontario universities may require undergraduate applicants to have official international academic transcripts submitted directly to World Education Services (WES) Canada for verification as part of the admission process. Universities will notify applicants submitting international academic transcripts regarding specific submission requirements through WES Canada. Brock University does not require applicants to submit documents via WES (unless specifically indicated), however we will accept any documents submitted to us directly by WES Canada. 
**Conditional offers of admission may be extended based on a combination of second quarter grades (first semester) therefore it is in the best interest of applicants to have grades forwarded as soon as second quarter results are available. Applicants from British patterned schools or IB programs may submit predicted grades for consideration.
**U.S. applicants: Academic transcripts, SAT scores, school profiles (if available) and letters of recommendation from counsellors or teachers should be submitted as part of the application.
