Key Date

  2. Log into your ontariocolleges.ca account with your login credentials.
  3. Click on "View Offers" to see your offer(s) of admission.
  4. Select the offer of admission you wish to accept.
  5. Click "Confirm".

ontariocolleges.ca will automatically notify Humber of your decision.

A Note About Confirming Your Offer

Confirming your offer is an exciting step in your journey, but if you’ve applied to more than one program at Humber, you may receive an offer from one program and still be waiting to hear from another. In this situation, applicants are often worried that accepting the offer they have will mean losing a chance to get into the program they’re waiting to hear from.

There are two different situations you may find yourself in and it’s important to understand the difference between them.

Situation #1 - You receive offers from two or more programs at the same time

If Program A and Program B both send you offers at the same time, when you accept the offer from Program A you are declining your offer from Program B.

Situation #2 - You receive an offer from one program, but another program has not given you a decision

If Program A sends you an offer but Program B has not given you an admission decision, you can accept the offer from Program A without any impact on your status with Program B. If Program B sends you an offer at a later date, you can accept that offer and the offer you previously accepted to Program A will automatically be declined.

Key Dates
