Application Deadlines

Prospective students who are planning to enrol in one of the School’s Collaborative Specializations are encouraged to submit copies of the documents indicated above by the application deadline established by your home department. Please contact the home department to which you intend to apply to confirm the application deadline.

The School of the Environment allows potential students to enrol in our Collaborative Specializations beyond the deadlines set by their home departments. Once you are officially registered in one of the collaborating home departments, you may apply to and enrol either in an Environmental Studies or Environment & Health Collaborative Specialization, provided you can complete the program requirements within the time limits set for the completion of your degree program.
