You’ve received an offer of Admission from Humber.
Read your offer letter carefully to understand the type of offer you have received. See the Offers of Admission page for more information.
There are still a number of steps to complete before you start classes, so be sure to read Steps 5 - 10 very carefully and contact us if you’re unsure about what to do next.
February 1 - This is the first date that offers of admission can be made to applicants to all Humber programs.
ontariocolleges.ca will automatically notify Humber of your decision.
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.
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.
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.
May 1 - You must confirm your offer of admission. Confirmations are made at ontariocolleges.ca. Confirmations made after May 1 will be accepted if space is available in the program. Refer to your offer letter for your confirmation deadline.
Don't lose your seat! You need to pay a non-refundable tuition deposit or the full first semester tuition fees (new international students) on MyHumber by the tuition deposit deadline to maintain a seat in your program.

Wondering what your program will cost? Tuition fees are listed on Humber's program pages.

The scholarship will be posted to your account by the first week of classes.
