Yes, an undergraduate degree is a prerequisite to apply. This program does not offer an equivalent as a Certificate; therefore, all admission requirements must be met in order to be accepted into the program.
With the supplemental program application, we require two (2) letters of reference. Based on the study/work nature of our Post-Degree Diploma and Certificate programs, we ideally would like to receive one (1) reference from an academic source and one (1) from an employment source.
We will accept two (2) reference letters from academic sources, if a professional or work-related referee is not available.
Failure to submit letters of reference will prevent the timely processing of your application.
There is no official form for reference letters; however, letters should be written on the referee’s letterhead if possible. Letters of reference tend to be more helpful when the referee is aware of the information in your application. For example, the Diploma program you are applying to, as well as why and how you would be an ideal candidate for this program should be included in your letter.
Letters of reference must be sealed by the referee with his or her signature across the seal and may be mailed to Continuing Studies either directly from the referee or with the supplemental application.
