Next Steps for New Students

  1. Accept your offer and book your enrolment appointment

    Accept your offer through MyFile and book your enrolment appointment.

  2. Complete your language assessments

    You’ll receive an email with a link to French and Spanish placement assessments. Don’t worry – these are simply tests to place you in a class level for your second (or third) language. If you don’t plan to learn Spanish at Glendon, you don’t need to take the Spanish test. If you’re coming to Glendon with little-to-no French or Spanish skills, it’s okay! Leaving sections of the test blank is fine and will ensure you’re put in an appropriate course level.

    At the appointment, you’ll have the chance to sit down for a personalized session with our academic advisors, learn how to enrol in courses, and more. Live outside the Toronto area and can’t come to campus? You’ll be able to have your enrolment appointment by distance.
