Graduate Application Steps

grad application portal updateIn preparation for the launch of our new Graduate Admissions System, the Graduate Application Portal will be closing on April 20, 2024. This will allow applicants time to pay the application fee and submit the application before our current electronic Graduate Admissions System (eGAS) is retired and a new system will replace it.  


Step 1 - You have until April 20, 2024, to pay your application fee and submit your application.  

Step 2 - You have until April 27, 2024, to update your application in the Graduation Admission System (eGAS). If you do not, you will have to wait until May 6 to update files for your application or complete items on your To Do list in UWinsite Student.   

Any incomplete applications will be available in iApply/Applicant portal on May 14.

When you begin the application submission, you will be transferred to the University of Windsor Graduate Applications website where you will complete and submit your initial online application.

  1. Review the detailed instructions for completing the initial online application (will open up in a new window) and return to this page
  2. Log in to the application website and create an account if you do not already have one. (Avoid bookmarking the application site link, it will not be possible to access the site from a bookmarked link.)

  4. Complete the application
  5. Pay the application fee
  6. Click the "Submit Application" bar

If you have successfully submitted your application you will see a confirmation number on the screen. 

Once your application and payment have been processed, you will receive an application acknowledgement email.  Note that it may take up to two business days to receive this email. 

In addition, to allow our electronic Graduate Application System (eGAS) to be updated with your information, please wait at least 24 hours after receiving the application acknowledgement email before following the steps below.

  2. An automatic email will be sent out to referees, if required in Step 1.
  3. Once you have uploaded all required documents, select "Submit Application".
  4. If your documents are double-sided, be sure to scan and submit both sides of each document.
