How do I decline my offer or cancel my application?

Declining an offer

If you have received an offer of admission and you wish to decline it, you can do so on Bear Tracks.
 
To decline an admission offer for a particular program, log into Bear Tracks, then click on "decline offer" next to the program offer you wish to decline. Please note that if you wish to decline all your offers, you must decline each offer individually.
 
If you have registered for any courses, you must drop all of your courses in that program before you will be able to decline.

If you have declined an offer to your first choice program, but want to be evaluated for your second choice program, please use our Student Connect contact form to send us a message indicating so.
 
If you have already paid a tuition deposit and you wish to decline, your deposit will not be refunded. If you still have another offer pending, your tuition deposit will be credited towards that program. If you decline all your offers your tuition deposit will be permanently forfeited.

Cancelling an application

If you have applied to a program and wish to cancel your application before receiving an admission decision, you can do so on Bear Tracks.
 
Cancelling an application for an individual program means that your application will be withdrawn and you will no longer be considered for admission for that program.
 
Please note that if you wish to cancel your application to multiple programs, each program choice must be cancelled individually.

If you have cancelled an application to your first choice program, but want to be evaluated for your second choice program, please use our Student Connect contact form to send us a message indicating so.
