Graduate & Advanced Applicants affected by Coronavirus (COVID‑19)

King’s is responding to COVID-19: Find up-to-date information. »

The University of King’s College is committed to supporting students whose application process is impacted by the Novel Coronavirus. For students who are unable to obtain required documentation (official transcripts, English proficiency test scores) due to closures of schools and test centers, we are making the following allowances:

Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts will be accepted from students for use in evaluating their application for a conditional admission. Please note that a conditional admission decision is subject to a review of official transcripts by the University of King’s College and Dalhousie University before the start date of the academic program.

Language Proficiency Test Scores

Unofficial copies of current test score reports (IELTS, TOEFL) will be accepted for a conditional admission. Please note that a conditional admission decision is subject to a review of official transcripts by the University of King’s College and Dalhousie University before the start date of the academic program.

Reference Letters

If an applicant’s referee is unable to fulfill the requirements regulating graduate studies reference letters, the student should contact graduate.studies@dal.ca.

Please be aware these allowances are only available to applicants where closures related to Novel Coronavirus have impacted ability to obtain official transcripts, test results or references. We will continue to monitor the situation and updates can be found on this page.

We understand this is a challenging time for students and their families. If you have any questions regarding your application, please contact Tara Wigglesworth-Hines at tara.wigglesworthhines@ukings.ca.
