Prepare Your Required Supporting Documents

All uploaded supporting documents must comply with FGSR's Application Requirements for Academic Documents. Applicants are required to declare all academic education from all past and present universities, colleges, and post-secondary institutions attended (including the University of Alberta). Failure to disclose all education and/or comply with these criteria could result in a cancellation of the application or withdrawal of admission offer.
You will need to provide the following documents for your full application:
You will be required to scan and upload each page (front and back) of your most up-to-date official academic documents in PDF version:
Letters of reference
