Temporary Changes To Admissions (COVID-19)

The St. Thomas University Admissions Office is still accepting applications and is committed to supporting applicants during the COVID-19 situation.

  • Our staff is working remotely to ensure continuity of service and while our campus and Admissions Office is closed
  • Applications will continue to be accepted online www.stu.ca/applynow 
  • Applicants will be notified of outstanding documents and admission decisions by email

Official Documentation

We understand that this is a challenging time for applicants. If COVID-19 related closures have impacted your ability to obtain official documentation, such as transcripts and test scores, we have temporarily made the following adjustments to our official documentation requirements:  

Transcripts
Unofficial high school and post-secondary transcripts will be accepted at this time. Transcripts must be sent to the Admissions Office by email (admissions@stu.ca). We are not currently accepting mailed transcripts.

English language Proficiency Tests
Unofficial test scores will be accepted at this time. Test scores may be sent directly by the student to the Admissions Office by email (admissions@stu.ca). We are not currently accepting mailed test scores. St. Thomas accepts the Duolingo English Test (DET), an online English language proficiency test. If your in-person proficiency exam has been cancelled, you are encouraged to take the DET. Additional information on acceptable test scores required for admission can be found here.


Please note: If unofficial documentation is submitted, an official document from the granting institution may be requested at a later date. 

Payments

Application Fee Payments
