Learn about the admissions selection process requirements and deadlines for full-time programs at Michener.
To ensure you receive equal consideration in the admission process, your application must be received by the application deadline. This is particularly important for programs which are oversubscribed, since Michener receives many more qualified applicants than there are available spaces.
Admissions Process for full-time programs:
- All complete applications received by the Application Deadline will be processed. Complete applications include all supporting documents. All documents submitted become property of the Michener Institute and will not be returned to students. Please note: if you apply to a Michener-only program before November 21st, the first communication from the Michener Institute will be sent in early to mid-December.
- For applications received by the deadline, Michener will send each applicant an acknowledgement email and instructions to complete a Supplementary Application Form (SAF). The SAF requires the applicant to review key application and program information. (Fee of $45 is mandatory and must be received by a set deadline.) Since our communications will happen through e-mail, please ensure you have made ‘michener.ca’ a trusted sender so that our communications will not go to your junk or spam mail folders.
- Applications will be assessed and ranked according to Cumulative Grade Point Average (based on the OMSAS scale) and/or prerequisite courses.
- Top ranked applicants will be invited to the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI). Invitations will be sent out in mid April. MMIs are held at The Michener Institute.
- Applicants will be re-ranked after the results of the MMI are incorporated.
- Offers of Admission will be sent out in mid-May to top ranked candidates. All other candidates will be placed on a wait list.
- Specific health requirements and a vulnerable sector check are mandatory for all Michener students. Any associated costs are the responsibility of the student. For more detailed information on specific requirements please see the Health Services & Requirements page.
- Offers will continue to be sent to candidates on the waitlist, approximately every two weeks until each program is full.
