How to send us your supporting documents

Important notice

Due to an extremely high volume of international applications, admission decisions are taking significantly longer than anticipated. We are working to address the application backlog, and we appreciate your patience.

Please refer to MyAdmin for updates on your application status, and please refrain from resending email messages as this only adds to the number of messages we are processing. We will respond to you as soon as we can.

Also note that in keeping with the Learning, Teaching & Research Model applicants must show the potential to work in a collaborative, respectful manner with staff, faculty and students. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission, and the university reserves the right to deny any applicant. Abusive or disrespectful correspondence from applicants will not be tolerated.

How we manage your documents 

Once we receive your documents, they become property of Royal Roads University. We will not forward them to third parties.

We will return original transcripts if it is confirmed that it is not possible to obtain official replacement copies. We can also copy or return any documents that you create, such as résumé, personal statements, writing samples and portfolios. You will be responsible for any associated costs.

To protect your privacy, we will destroy any documents we receive within 30 days if they are not connected with an active application. After an application is closed or cancelled, we destroy any related documents and files after one year.
