New Year, New Dates and Deadlines to be Aware of

Posted on Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

School is back in session and we know you’ve got a lot on your mind. That’s why we’re going to keep this simple and give you some info on important things to keep on your radar if you’re hoping to join the gryphon family in 2019.

1. Our early application deadline is coming soon!

The early application deadline is January 16 (January 15th for international applicants) so if you’re hoping to be considered in our first round of admission offers, plan on submitting your application through OUAC ASAP.

The regular application deadline is March 1, so if you can’t get your application completed for the January deadline, you do still have some time. Just keep in mind the later you apply, the later you will hear from us.

Check out our Admission Plan for a full explanation of when offers go out, what grades are used when, and estimated cut-offs to aim for.

2. Scholarship applications are due soon

We’ll be publishing more info about some of our great scholarship opportunities in the coming days, but for now, feel free to visit the Student Financial Services website to learn about our entrance scholarships.

A special application is required for some of the larger scholarships (such as The President’s Scholarship) with an application deadline of January 25. We strongly encourage you begin your application for these larger awards NOW!

3. The student profile form (SPF) is available online now

The SPF is a great opportunity for you provide us with some extra info about yourself. Use it to tell us about your high school experience – your involvement, your struggles, your extracurriculars… include what you want! Check out our recent SPF article for more details and keep in mind any SPF forms must be submitted by May 1, 2019 (March 1 for international applicants). 

4. Chat with us!

We’ve got a bunch of general and program-specific Snapchat chats lined up for the coming months as well as many helpful staff and student volunteers just itching to answer your questions! Visit our Online Chat page for a full list of chat dates.


5. Visit us!

Do more than just picture yourself at Guelph – come and visit our campus!

We offer campus tours led by current students, which include visits to residences, lecture halls, the library, the athletic facilities, and more.

Winter tours run from January 14 – April 5, and March Break tours run from March 11-15. Visit our Campus Tours page to book your tour today!

You can also visit us for Campus Day on Sunday, March 24. This is a full day open house where you and your family can tour campus, check out residence, attend info sessions and meet current students, faculty and staff. Registration and event details will be available in late January.


That's it for now #FutureGryphons. Be sure to follow us on social media and check back here for more important dates, deadlines and updates!
