A report on the academic evaluation and the English language competency is included in the student’s application on PAC. International students can only be given an offer when the IO has reviewed the application. If the IO does not recommend making an offer, an applicant can not be accepted. Students requiring visas should be accepted by end of July to enable visa application and to allow the IO sufficient time to write offer letters for immigration purposes. A department cannot supply this letter. The IO is not notified regarding the immigration status of students, rather the student is notified directly.
