Next Steps for new students

What to do once you’ve applied to UM

Submitted your application and wondering what to do now? We’re here to guide you through the next steps.

May 7, 2020 — 

You’ve hit ‘submit’ on your UM application or you’ve already received an offer of admission, yay! This is a very exciting time for you. If you’re wondering what happens next, we have you covered. This past week the UM student recruitment team hosted fourteen Next Steps for New Students sessions over Zoom and had every single spot filled! These sessions covered information on how a student can go about accepting their offer, submit documentation, scholarship offers and AP/IB transfer credit. Worried you missed out? No sweat, all sessions will be posted online for students to watch later. 

Future session topics will include opportunities to learn more about transitioning to university, course selection, important information for parents, Indigenous student opportunities and more. Rest assured we will be communicating and providing important information to you throughout the coming months to help you prepare for September!

Sign up for one of our future online Next Steps for New Students sessions!

    I am a prospective graduate student of UM. I am an International Student, applying for MSc in Food Sciences for the falls admission. I wish to ask if there are Scholarship/awards for international students and how to go about it especially those for applications within my faculty. The criteria and the necessary documentations needed to submit the application.
