The basic requirements for admission are adequate preparation for successful graduate study, and suitability of applicant’s academic and career objectives to the specific program. A non-refundable application fee is required of all applicants.
The Academic Division evaluates applications for admission with specific assessment of official transcripts of previous academic qualifications, certificates, letters of recommendation and the applicant’s “Statement of Purpose”.
The other major factors considered by the graduate admissions committee are the applicant’s:
- Previous academic performance; a good Bachelor’s Degree (second class lower or better) or equivalent professional qualification from a recognized institution/body.
- Academic preparation for the graduate curriculum;
- Intellectual capacity;
- Motivation and maturity; and
- Specific areas of academic interest.
A non-refundable application fee is required from all applicants. Applications cannot be processed until the application fee has been received. The application fee is devoted to the administrative cost of processing all applications received, and is non-refundable under any circumstances. A non-refundable application fee may be paid by cheque, money order or cash. The cheque, money order or cash should be made payable to GAFCSC Account (provided by the institution) and the pay-in-slip should be submitted to the Academic Division. Also, cash can be paid directly to the office of the Financial Controller of the College. Applicant’s name and application number should be printed on the check or money order.
One original or certified official transcript of all previous post-secondary academic work must be submitted. Transcripts should be sent directly to the academic Registry by the Registrar of the issuing Institution or by the applicant. When students have final work in progress at the time of the application, a final official transcript covering that work and certifying the award of any degree must be received before the student is officially enrolled. In such situations, the student is admitted provisionally, pending receipt of official transcripts reflecting award of the bachelor’s degree.
Letters of Recommendation
Two letters of recommendation, preferably from Departmental Heads or professors in the proposed field of study, are required.
Statement of Purpose
The Statement of Purpose provides important guidance to the graduate admissions committee in their decision-making process. It is important for assessing whether the applicant’s academic objectives can reasonably be satisfied in the graduate program to which admission is sought.
