Application Intake

Upon receipt of your application, the Navigators will issue an Application Received letter with a checklist of outstanding documents via email. Please submit outstanding documents to the "file manager" in your student portal in a timely manner (incomplete applications will not be assessed).  Please keep in mind that review for both application dates will take place once the deadline has passed.  Please give the Navigators a week to review the applications before checking on the status of your application.  The decision will be available in the student portal.  


If your application was received in full on or before the deadline date, it will then be assessed for eligibility and a recommendation will be made. Recommendations are reviewed based on available funding. If an application is eligible and funding is available an approval package will be issued. If an application is ineligible or funds are no longer available an ineligibility letter will be issued.  


Student "Outcomes" Portal

Once your application has been received, you can use the student portal to check on the status of your application.  Documents can be uploaded to the file manager here as well.  Please ensure that the file names are reasonable in length otherwise you may experience technical issues.
