International Transfer Applicant - After Applying

Thank you for applying to join the University of Guelph-Humber community!

International transfer applicants are assessed throughout the admissions cycle, and you are encouraged to explore the pathways below to ensure your application is on-track. 

  • 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 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.

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

  • If you receive an offer of admission

    Accepted international transfer applicants will receive an email (with a PDF of your offer documents) and an 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 common concerns, please review our 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. Once you have fulfilled the conditions of your offer you will receive a communication confirming that you have met all requirements.

    Don't hesitate to contact us, with any concerns.

  • If you want to defer your offer of admission

    You may request a deferral if you have accepted your offer of admission into a University of Guelph-Humber program but are unable to begin your studies in 2023. Deferral requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis for students with extenuating circumstances. A fee applies.

    As an alternative, you may consider taking a reduced course load and enrolling in less than 2.00 credits (four courses). Before doing so, we recommend you contact:

    To be considered for a deferral you must:

    • Accept your offer of admission by the deadline noted on your offer letter.
    • Meet all conditions outlined in your offer of admission by the deadline noted on your offer letter.
    • Request a deferral application by emailing by August 1.
    • Submit the deferral application, support letter and $90 fee by the deferral application deadline.
    • Not attend any other postsecondary institution during the deferral period.

    Deferral application process

    1. You must submit your deferral application, support letter and $90 fee by August 11 for consideration.
    2. Applications are considered on a rolling basis for students who satisfy the conditions of their offer. Once we have considered your application, we will communicate the decision to you by email.
    3. If you submit a deferral application and later choose to withdraw that application to begin classes in 2023, please email Admission Services.
    4. If you are granted a deferral, you will receive a new Offer of Admission by the following February.
  • 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 digital offer package. More information can be found on our Study Permit page.
  • 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.
  • Apply for residence 
    The June 1 application deadline has passed, but residence continues to accept applications for students interested in joining a waitlist.

    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 in February 2023. 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.
