3. Application supporting documents
Wherever possible, you must submit official documentation as requested by the Admissions Office. You will also need to provide an official translation if these documents are not in English. Official documents required may include:
- Atestat (Certificate of Complete General Secondary Education) from Ukraine
- Transcripts from other post-secondary institutions you have attended
We know it may be impossible to provide official documents. In circumstances where you are unable to provide official documentation, due to legitimate extenuating circumstances, the Admissions Office may ask you to provide the following:
- unofficial copies of all educational transcripts/documentation that you have (if they are not in English, we will need you to provide an official translation);
- a copy of the student ID you were issued at your university;
- a copy of your passport;
- a letter outlining your situation in full and including, at minimum, the following:
- name, location, and date of birth;
- reasons why you cannot use our regular process of admission;
- description of attempts you made to obtain documents;
- name and dates of the institution/program you attended;
- name of any academic credentials granted and the date granted;
- titles, grades, course hours (credits), or other information normally included on a transcript;
- other information required (e.g., statement of professional standing, particularly when a specific academic credential is required to enter the profession in the issuing country).
- letters of reference from any available third parties, not including family members, who can corroborate your claims and/or provide additional information about your qualifications.
