How to clear conditions of admission

Once you have accepted your offer of admission, you’ll need to satisfy the condition(s) of admission stated in your offer letter. Review Conditions of Admission outlined in the School of Graduate Studies offer letter and submit official transcripts/documentation, as required following the instructions below.

It is your responsibility to clear all conditions as soon as possible. All conditions must be satisfied before final registration is permitted. However, students are allowed to enrol in courses and register (pay tuition fees) when conditions of admission are not yet fulfilled.

If you do not fulfill all conditions, course enrolment and registration will be cancelled, and you will not be permitted to continue in your program. Possible future admission is not guaranteed and requires re-application (including payment and submission of supporting documents).

When every condition of admission has been cleared, an “All Conditions Satisfied” e-mail will be sent to you.
