Application Information and Deadlines

Application Information and Deadlines

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science (BSES) program is a limited access program. Students must apply to the program and be accepted.

The BSES program admits students in the fall, winter, and summer terms (August, January and May, respectively). To be considered for admission into the program, application packages must be submitted in full by the application deadlines. 

Once the application package is submitted, it is then given to the BSES Admissions Committee for consideration. The Committee meets regularly throughout the academic semester. Applications must be complete to be considered by the Committee. Incomplete applications (e.g. missing transcripts, missing letter of recommendation) will not be considered until all documents are received. If the missing documents are not received in time for the final meeting of the admissions cycle, the student will not be considered for admission and​ will need to reapply for the following term.
