Admission Process

The Admission Process in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Fill in an admission application form before February 1st for the summer and autumn sessions or before September 1st for the winter session.

    • Students who need help understanding the French terms and to complete the admission application form may download this bilingual document (French/English).
    • Beyond these deadlines, applications are accepted in the majority of programs, particularly for admission to the autumn session. Please check with the faculty or department concerned.
    • Foreign students should expect to wait three to six months before obtaining a visa and follow all of the procedures related to your stay in Quebec. You must respect these deadlines; otherwise the application for admission could be postponed to a later session.

    N.B. Filling in a paper admission form is possible. However the on-line application for admission is more cost-efficient and is processed more rapidly. 

  2. Send the required documents.
  3. Pay the admission fees.
  4. File review : File review is under the responsibility of the academic unit.
  5. Letter of admission or refusal
    Candidates will receive their admission or refusal letter via the « Centre étudiant » (Student Center).

N.B. Candidates who receive an admission letter must confirm if they accept or refuse the admission offer in their « Centre étudiant » by the date indicated in the email.


N.B. Please note that HEC Montréal and École Polytechnique have their own admission and registration procedures.
