Processing Times

Admission to Humber can be competitive. We receive significantly more applications than we have spaces available. Final program availability is based on when your application is processed and not when your application is submitted. Click here to view the current program availability. Programs that are not available for conditional offers have a limited capacity and fill very quickly.

We begin processing applications 8 to 10 months prior to the start of each semester. Over the past few months, the International Centre at Humber has seen a significant increase in applications. This increase has put a strain on our resources and our processing time has been impacted. Application processing will take up to 10 weeks.

Due to high application volume, we are processing international applications on a selective basis. We prioritize based on the academic quality of applicants and on the diversity of the international student body. We also prioritize applicants that include all documents required to make an admission decision. Please ensure that you regularly check your emails for correspondence from us and that you submit all required documentation in a timely manner.

Application Fee

The $75 CAD non-refundable application fee requires a credit card.

Please note: The program may be open when an application is submitted, but it may be closed at the time an Admission Officer reviews it. A program may also be closed at the time English language proficiency scores are submitted (to waive the EAP program requirement).

*Humber assesses admissibility to your first program choice. Your remaining program choices will only be assessed if you are not eligible for admission to your first program choice.

Highly Competitive Programs

A highly competitive program consistently has more qualified applications than seats available. Applicants need to have a higher grade point average (GPA) than the minimum requirement for these programs. Exact cut-offs for the current academic year will be determined by the quantity and quality of applications received and the number of spaces available in the program. Therefore applicants are advised that achieving the cut-off score does not guarantee admission. Offers of admission will be issued to the most qualified applicants. Applicants interested in a highly competitive program are encouraged to apply early. Access our list of highly competitive programs.

Note to EAP Applicants

If you have not submitted an Academic IELTS/TOEFL/PTE/CAEL test with your application you will need to take the online Duolingo English Test for Humber to assess your English proficiency level and to place you at the appropriate level within our English for Academic Purposes program. Duolingo has a rapid turnaround of results, can be taken online anywhere in the world, and costs US$49.

You will need to upload your test results to MyHumber ( under proof of English Language Proficiency. Once we receive your test results your offer letter will be issued.

To learn about how students are placed into EAP levels based on popular international English assessments, see EAP’s placement chart.
