Application and admission timeline
Here's how it works for full-time, entry level programs starting in the 2020-2021 academic year (Terms: Fall 2020, Winter 2021 and Spring 2021)
Early October 2020: Online applications open
Applications available on ontariocolleges.ca
Mid-October 2020: Fanshawe begins receiving applications
Application download: Fanshawe will begin receiving applications that have been processed by ontariocolleges.ca.
February 1, 2021: Equal consideration date
Equal consideration deadline: This means that all applications received by ontariocolleges.ca on, or before February 1st will be given equal consideration in the application process.
Any applications received after February 1st will be considered on a first come, first served basis.*
*Why is this important? A number of our programs are oversubscribed (we have more qualified applicants than available seats). Applications to these programs close at midnight on February 1.
February 1 to mid-March, 2021: Earliest offer date
Offers of admission: Fanshawe makes admission decisions and sends out offers. To find out the status of your applications, login to your WebAdvisor account. Offers of admission will continue to be made until a program is full, or classes begin, whichever comes first.
May 1, 2021: Deadline to confirm offers of admission
Confirmation deadline: This is the deadline to tell us that you have accepted Fanshawe's offer of admission.
How do you confirm? Log on to ontariocolleges.ca and confirm your offer of admission.
Three weeks prior to classes starting
Admissions conditions: Any admissions conditions (i.e. finishing a course listed as an admission requirement) must be completed and proof of completion sent to Admissions three weeks prior to your classes beginning.
