  • If you have information that you believe will assist our review, send it as an email attachment to Include your name and Seneca ID or your Application-Confirmation Number “55-xxxx-xxxxx” in the subject of the email.
  • Before scanning and submitting any additional documents, please write your Seneca ID or Application-Confirmation Number “55-xxxx-xxxxx” or Seneca ID on the top of all documents to make it easier for us to match them with your application.
  • If we need clarification for any of your documents, we will email you. You are advised to check your email regularly. There are a number of professional programs for which we will require a credential assessment from a recognized agency such as World Education Services (WES). We will inform you by email if that is the case.
  • Some programs also have additional non-academic requirements such as questionnaires, essays, portfolios, auditions or testing. Additional requirements are listed under admission requirements of each program page. When you apply to a program that has additional requirements, we will contact you by email with details of how to submit the additional documents. If testing is required, you will need to arrange an invigilator. Your admissions adviser will work directly with your invigilator to send and receive your test and results.
