Please note that applications are not considered complete until all necessary supporting documentation is provided. Applications which are received after the posted application deadline will be considered only if there is space available in the requested program.
Documents (transcripts, standardized test reports, etc) which are submitted in support of applications become the property of the College and may not be returned to the student. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that he or she has several copies of their document(s) notorized for such purposes.
Overseas international students who wish to retain irreplaceable application documents (i.e. official transcripts, graduation certificates, etc.) should consult the Office of the Registrar, prior to submitting the documents with their application, to request that their original documentation may be verified by appropriate staff members and returned. Approved requests to verify irreplaceable documents will be completed within 2 business days.
While photocopies of official documents may be used to apply to the College, students are expected to provide the official documents as soon as possible. In order to ensure that the College is able to attain these official documents, all official transcripts, certificates, and language test results must be provided before a student is eligible to order official documents from Alexander College (ex. official transcript, confirmation of enrolment letter, etc.)
Students who may require Official letters or transcripts from the College early in their studies are recommended to submit official documents with their application in order to avoid potential delay.
