A reserve list will also be drawn up upon applications received by the preliminary registration deadline, but not initially selected.
Student applicants that are not selected to become volunteers will be offered the chance to register taking advantage of the early registration rate.

Late applications

Applications received after the deadline will be placed at the end of the reserve list in the order in which they are received.
