How to Apply

Registration for the 2021 CSOP will open in November 2020


Please complete the online form and pay the non-refundable $100 advance deposit. After the form and deposit are received, your application will be processed. If you are unable to complete the online form, you may apply by completing the 2021 Application & Registration Form and the 2021 Lodging & Meals Form and submitting them by email to

All applications must be received before April 1 to avoid the non-refundable late fee of $50. Late applications may be accepted, space permitting.

Once a class is full, any further participants may join a waiting list, or may be registered in their second choice, if indicated on the application form, until a space opens in their first choice. In past years, some CSOP courses have filled up, so apply early to ensure your place in the course of your choice.

INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS who need to apply for a visa to enter Canada should apply as soon as possible, as visa processing times for international participants make it increasingly unlikely that a visa will be granted in time for the CSOP sessions beginning June 8.

Because of visa processing times, we will not accept international applications after May 2.

CMU STUDENTS who are already admitted to a degree program should register through their Student Portal by April 1st. Late registrations may be accepted.

Please contact if you have problems or questions with the registration process.
