    Steps required to receive early admission 

    1. Complete your online application for admission* (available starting October 15, 2023). 
    2. Send official transcripts** (high school graduates and transfer applicants only) 
    3. Pay your application fee

    If you have questions about completing your undergraduate application to study at Dalhousie or wish to chat with an advisor, visit the Admissions Advising Lounge on event day.  

    Please note: We unfortunately do not offer application fee waivers for Open House attendees in order to ensure fairness for all applicants.

    *Open House priority processing is being offered for direct-entry undergraduate programs only and is not available for Bachelor of Health Sciences and Bachelor of Science (Nursing) applicants.  

    **Current high school students in Canada and the US who received final grades for the 2022-2023 school year can self-report their grades along with unofficial transcripts1 during the early admission period. International high school students who are enrolled in a Canadian curriculum school outside of Canada, an International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) program, or who will be completing their GCE A Levels will be considered for early admission based on self-reported year 11 grades. An unofficial1 version of the year 11 final transcript must be provided. If numerical grades are not available, unofficial transcripts1 can be provided through the application portal.  

    International high school students following other curricula are not able to be assessed for admissions until January 2024.  

    An unofficial transcript can be a scan, digital file, screenshot of a grade portal, or clear photo of your final transcript from year 11. Please be sure to include all pages of the transcript.
