After we receive your application, Admission Services will email you a login and password for WebAdvisor, our online student administration system. This online account allows you to check what documents are required to submit for admission consideration and if documents have been received by Admission Services. Please check this account regularly. 

Documents to submit may include:

Official transcripts (required)
For us to consider your application for admission, please have your School Counsellor or Administrator send your official secondary school transcript and any other required documents to international@guelphhumber.ca by the date listed on your WebAdvisor account. Your transcript must include all completed and in-progress courses and results at the senior level.

You will need to arrange to have your final official transcript sent by email from your school or through a credential verification organization, where applicable (e.g., Parchment, World Education Services), to Admission Services.

English language requirements (may be required)
If your first language is not English, or if you have completed less than four years of study in English at the secondary (or postsecondary) level, then you are required to submit proof of English proficiency. Test results must be less than two years prior to your application. Please refer to our chart of accepted tests/scores.

You will receive an email with detailed instructions (after you apply) if you are required to demonstrate English proficiency as part of your application.
