International Transfer Applicant - After Applying

To be considered an International Applicant:

  • You currently live outside of Canada, and
  • You are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and
  • You are not currently attending an Ontario high school day program (in Ontario or abroad)

Join our diverse community at the University of Guelph-Humber! Study in one of the most multicultural cities in the world.


  • Check your email!
    We’ll send you an acknowledgement email so you know your application has been received.

    You will get an email with a user ID and password to WebAdvisor and Gryph Mail. Use WebAdvisor, our online student administration system, to check your list of required documents and monitor what has been received. Set up your Gryph Mail to receive official emails from the University regarding your application and documents.

  • Submit your documents
    Log in to WebAdvisor to check your list of required documents and monitor what has been received. Please check this account often. Send in all required documents by the deadline indicated in your WebAdvisor account. If you have received an offer of admission and have questions about documents, please review our new FAQ page for international students.

    As an international transfer applicant with previous postsecondary education, you will be evaluated based on your high school credential and all completed postsecondary studies. You are evaluated once your application is received and all transcripts and requested documents are submitted. We highly recommend that you have your international credentials evaluated prior to applying to determine how your credentials will be recognized in Canada. Credentials can be evaluated through World Education Services. Please submit a WES Course by Course ICAP evaluation and add the University of Guelph-Humber as a recipient to your files. Fees may apply.

    You may wish to submit additional documents to support your application to explain circumstances that may have impacted your academic performance.

    If you have any questions, please email our International Recruitment and Admissions Coordinator.

  • If you receive an offer of admission

    If you applied through the University of Guelph website or common app, then you will receive an email (with a PDF of your offer documents) and an offer package in the mail from the University.

    If you applied through the OUAC website, the offer will appear on your OUAC account and you will receive an email and offer package in the mail from the University.

    To hold your spot in the program, accept your offer on the OUAC site, or complete the Admissions Response Document found in your offer package (if applicable), by the deadline indicated. If you do not accept your offer by the deadline, you can lose your spot in the program. If you have questions about documents, study permits and other issues impacted by COVID-19, please review our new FAQ page for international students.

    About your offer
    Every offer of admission is conditional. When you accept your offer it is with the assumption that all conditions of that offer will be met by a deadline outlined in your offer letter.

    Your offer of admission is valid unless you fail to meet the conditions of the offer or you decline the offer. If you are not contacted by the University, then your offer of admission stands as outlined in the original offer (i.e., we do not send out a final offer letter). In this case, NO NEWS MEANS GOOD NEWS.

    Don't hesitate to contact us with any concerns.

    If you have been admitted to a program at the University but are unable to begin your studies in the fall, you may request to defer your offer for one year. To request a deferral application, please email Admission Services before July 30, 2022. Deferrals are considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Vulnerable Sector Check/Screening
    If you are entering into first-year Early Childhood Studies or are a transfer applicant that has a placement/internship starting in your first semester at the University, you may be required to complete a Vulnerable Sector Check/Screening before your placement/internship begins. More details will be provided with an offer of admission.
  • Authorization required to study in Canada
    In your offer package, you will receive an official offer letter and visa information sheet that will support your application for Canadian Immigration Documents. It is important that you apply for your Study Permit and Co-op Work Permit as soon as you receive your offer package. More information can be found on our Study Permit page. Visit our web page for admitted International Students to check for updated information related to COVID-19.
  • Apply for residence by June 1, 2022
    If you have received an offer of admission, you are eligible to apply for residence. Residence operates on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible (after you receive an offer). Applications for fall residence open online on February 1, 2022. The application process is a two-step process that can take a few days to complete because you need to wait for step 1 to be processed before you can complete step 2. Please do not leave applying for residence to the last minute. Please check your offer package for more details. Visit our web page for admitted International Students to check for updated information related to COVID-19.
