Accepting an Offer
If your child gets a 3-K offer, you must accept the offer by pre-registering with the program where you got the offer. Pre-registration secures your child's 3-K seat at that program.
Contact the program to schedule a time to pre-register. Be sure to accept your offer even if you are waitlisted at another program.
Your child will be automatically added to the waitlist for any program you ranked higher on your 3-K application than the program where your child got an offer, or for all programs on your application if you did not get an offer.
Programs will contact you directly if they are able to offer your child a seat from the waitlist.
