Admission Appeals - How it works

Admission Appeal forms can be downloaded below.

How to write and submit the letter

The typed letter (12 pt. font, single-spaced, 600 words max.) must be addressed to the Registrar and emailed to within 10 working days of receipt of the admission decision. 

A $50 (non-refundable) administration fee is required with this admission appeal request. Receipt of your online banking payment must be submitted with the letter of appeal and form.

Your letter must clearly state:

  • your name
  • the program you are appealing
  • why the Admission Appeal is being requested
  • the specific facts that you consider to be grounds relevant to the Admission Appeal
  • any previous attempts to address the situation
  • include your signature

If the request is not completed with these elements, the admission appeal may not be reviewed.

Portfolio Programs

To request an Admissions Appeal based on portfolio score, the applicant must meet the academic requirements of the program. Eligible applicants are selected for programs on the assessment of their previous academic achievement and the results of the portfolio assessment.

The original portfolio may be requested at a later date as needed in the appeal process. You do not need to include your portfolio with the letter if it was originally submitted online. The appeal process does not provide an opportunity for resubmission of new work. New submissions will not be considered or reviewed.

Please be aware that as a result of the Admission Appeal Process, the portfolio score may be affected in one of three ways: the score may remain the same, the score may increase or the score may decrease. It is possible that any change in score will not necessarily change the admission decision.
