Reactivate your application

Please note: applications are only kept on file for one year. If you wish to reactivate your application more than one year after having been admitted, please follow the same procedure as before, up to and including submission of your completed file (you will need to re-submit all required elements, as your application will not have been kept on file).

Check the application deadlines for the following semester (for an application for the spring semester, ensure that the program of study is accepting applications) or the following year.

  • Applications for the AUTUMN semester (September - January) open in January.
  • Applications for the SPRING semester (February - August) open mid-September.

a. Once again, fill out the enrollment application form online, on our website;
b. Pay the registration fee online; failure to do so will result in your application not being processed
c. Print out two copies of the form, then date and sign them
