December 15, 2022, is the absolute last day to create your application, and pay the application fee. Once you create the application, you will receive your MyFile link and student number, approximately four to five business days later (please check spam/junk folders).
You will then have until December 30, 2022, to upload your documents. Please be sure to indicate the correct emails and names of your referees, as they cannot be changed. Referees will receive a link to complete, and they should be aware that they have only two weeks to complete the reference (please tell referees to check their spam/junk folders).
You will also need to upload your CV, Statement of Interest, transcripts and Supplementary Information Form (known as SIF), but official IELTS and GRE scores come from outside institutions. Be sure to send your IELTS or language results if you attended a university where courses were taught in a language other than English. Again, we do not require GRE results this year for the September 2022 application cycle.
We invite you to apply for Fall 2023 as of October 15, 2022. It is strongly encouraged to have your application submitted as early as possible.
GRE scores will not be required from applicants for any area for the 2023 admissions year. Applications will be considered complete without GRE scores.
We are NOT able to offer funded positions to international applicants at this time. If you are externally funded or self-funded, please visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies—International Students for more information.
Deadline to Apply
It will take 4 business days once you apply for York University to email your application information. Applicants must have uploaded all non-academic documents (e.g. CV, Statement of Interest, Supplementary Information Form, and References) no later than December 1. This does NOT include academic documents such as official transcripts and GRE scores which will come directly from the institutions.
Interested in Graduate School in Psychology? We have the answers.
Remember, applying to graduate school is like planning a trip around the world – it requires careful planning and preparation well in advance before the journey can begin.
Here’s a quick list of what you need to know:
Now that you have applied, please be sure to check your MyFile for any changes in status, or reminders for outstanding requirements. Area faculty begin rating applications in January, and if a supervisor is interested, you should be contacted by the end of February for our first round of offers. Some Areas have an open house, other areas have individual interviews. After the initial offers, timing is variable but additional offers may be made. Therefore, if you have not been contacted and there is no change on your My File application status, it means you are still under consideration. Your patience is appreciated.
If you are contacted with an Offer of Admission, you will have until April 15 to accept or decline, although we hope you will accept as soon as you can.
