TOP Application Process

Applications must be completed in person at one of our TOP information sessions. To reserve a spot at an info session, sign up here.

You do not need to bring any documents to the orientation session, just a pen and paper to take notes. There is no application fee.

It is important to arrive at your orientation session on time. Points will be deducted for applicants who arrive late.

At the conclusion of the orientation, you will have the opportunity to complete a program application. Be prepared to answer some basic math questions (calculators not permitted).

The application is not timed, but generally takes no more than 30 minutes to complete. The entire orientation session lasts approximately an hour and a half to two hours, including time to complete your application.

The application process is competitive; completion of an application does not guarantee entry into the program.
