Accept your offer

You’ve received your offer, you’ve done your happy dance, and you’re already drawing badgers all over your notes. Before you start packing your bags and making your way to Niagara, you’ll need to formally accept your offer to Brock University.

If you applied to Brock through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), that is also where you will accept your offer.

If you did not apply though OUAC, you will need to accept your offer through your my.brocku.ca student portal.

Learn how to accept your offer

An ‘alternate offer’ means that we’re unable to offer you admission to your first-choice program at this point in time, but we still want you to become a Brock Badger! In order to make this happen, we’ve provided you with an alternate offer to a related program.

If you’re still completing courses this semester, don’t worry — we will automatically reconsider you for your first-choice program once your school sends us your mid-term grades (typically in early May). Continue to work hard!

After you’ve accepted your offer, there are a a few more steps before you can start your classes in the fall.

Be sure to check back frequently for more information on these deadlines.
