Your Acknowledgment Email, which is sent to your personal email that you provided on your application, will confirm we have received your application and the programs to which you have applied. Carefully review this to make sure that we have received the right information from you. If you have not received your Acknowledgement Email within a few days, check your spam folder and be sure to add Lakehead to your safe sender list.
