Applicants are encouraged to apply early. Applications and supporting documentation must be received by the appropriate deadline for admission consideration. Applications for full-time studies and relevant documents must be received by May 31. Secondary students must apply by January 14.

Procedure for International Students
International students may apply directly to Trent University through the Trent International program online application. Should a student also wish to apply for an international scholarship, this application can be downloaded as well from the website. An application package can also be sent to the student's home address through e-mail request at email@example.com. Alternatively, students may also apply through the OUAC. Applications may be downloaded from the OUAC website.
The Office of the Registrar must receive an application for admission and all supporting documents for the September start date, no later than June 1.
