U.S. Application Checklist

  • Meet with Guidance in September to make sure your list of schools is appropriate to your academic and personal record.
  • Register for the ACT/SAT/Subject Tests.
  • If necessary, ask the appropriate people to write recommendations on your behalf. Provide your references with forms, special instructions and stamped and addressed envelopes. Do this early.
  • Interested in athletics, contact appropriate coaches to express interest.
  • Plan to visit the schools if you have not already done so.
  • Complete and send applications. Be mindful of early decisions or early actions deadlines.

Language Requirements for International Students

All international applicants whose first language is not English, or who were educated in a country where English is not the main language of instruction, must write a language test. Each university has its own requirements. Most universities must receive the results by April 1

Early Conditional Offers

Each university has its own criteria for conditional offers – these decisions will be based on some combination of Grade 11 and/or Grade 12 marks available at that time. The university may require you to respond to this offer early. However, you still have the option of accepting another university’s offer at a later date. Accepting the earlier offer will not prejudice later consideration of your application by the other universities you selected. The offer you most recently accept will automatically invalidate any earlier acceptance. If you receive a conditional offer, the specific conditions will be listed in the letter of admission.Read the letter carefully as the university has the right to withdraw their offer if you do not meet their conditions.
