Yorkville University: Only one application per student

Yorkville University has informed our Overseas Gateway Team that they have been receiving a lot of duplicate applications. At this point, we would like to issue a reminder to avoid any further issue.

Please keep in mind that Yorkville University has a strict policy of only having one application per student, regardless of campus (Toronto or Vancouver). Students are not permitted to apply to Toronto and Vancouver at the same time. Once a student is in Yorkville’s system, and if they received their acceptance letter, they may choose to transfer through Yorkville to the other campus if their marks are acceptable.
