Yukon University welcomes applications from all Canadian citizens, landed immigrants, persons with permanent resident status or a study permit.

Applicants are considered for admission to most programs on a first-come, first-served basis, after all required documents and the application fee have been received. To ensure consideration for a program, apply as early as possible.

Applicants without the academic prerequisites may qualify for entry into a program by successfully completing University Assessments.

Applicants and students who have been identified or who suspect they have any kind of disability or condition that might affect their learning should contact the Learning Assistance Centre as early in the application process as possible.

  • Proof of achievement at the grade level designated as the admission requirement for the program to which the student is applying, or equivalent; OR
  • Proof of achievement at the prescribed level in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or the Canadian Language Benchmark Placement Test (CLBPT) or ACCUPLACER ESL scores.
