What documents do I need to apply to a program?
Many students ask us: “Do I need to finish my current studies to be eligible to apply?”. The answer is no.
For example: If you are applying for a bachelor’s program, you do not need to complete your high school education before applying. Being in your last year of high school (i.e. grade 12 in most countries) is the minimum requirement to apply to a bachelor’s program.
The general rule is, as long as you can demonstrate that you are qualified to graduate from your current educational program before starting your studies in USA or Canada, you are eligible to apply today. You don’t need a certificate of graduation, unless you have finished your current education.
Required documents when applying to an undergraduate program:
If you are applying for an undergraduate program (i.e. a program that only requires a high-school level of education), you will need your high school transcript and it must show all of your grades obtained from all years of high-school (usually grade 9 – 12).
If you have finished high-school, your high-school graduation diploma/certificate is also required.
You will also need a copy of your passport (if you have one).
Required documents when applying to a post-graduate program:
Post-graduate programs require a higher education degree or diploma. For example, most master’s programs require a four-year bachelor’s degree and most post-graduate certificate programs need at least a three-year bachelor’s degree or an undergraduate diploma.
If you are currently still a post-secondary student, you will need to provide your latest transcript that displays grades since beginning of your post-secondary program.
If you have finished your bachelor’s degree or diploma, you need to provide your graduation certificate/diploma as well.
You will also need a copy of your passport if you have one.
Some master’s programs require recommendation letters, résumés, essays and/or a statement of purpose.
You can find the specific requirements for high school, ESL, undergraduate diplomas, bachelor’s and master’s programs on each program’s page of our website.
Simply search your desired programs, determine the ones that you can be accepted to by answering our eligibility questions and see the specific requirements for each program here.
