Accepting an offer of admission

You must accept an offer of admission by the deadline indicated on the offer letter in order to reserve a space in the program. If you do not respond by the deadline, your offer may be withdrawn. It is especially important for students who have been admitted to limited enrolment programs to accept their offers on time.

There are two ways to respond to the offer of admission, depending upon how you originally applied to Carleton.
