Monitor Your Status

Application Decision

Applicants can monitor the status of their application via WebAdvisor.

  • Documents not marked as 'Received' on WebAdvisor are considered outstanding and must be submitted in order for the department to make an admission decision. Applicants are encouraged to upload their documents as soon as they become available.
  • Once all documents have been marked as 'Received' on WebAdvisor, the department to which you have applied, will be notified that your application is complete and ready for review (please ensure you have forwarded any additional required documents to the department directly. Failure to do so may result in an incomplete application).
  • Each department makes admissions decisions based on their own timeline. Please be patient. Should you have any questions regarding your admission, please contact the department directly.
  • Once an admission decision has been made, you will receive an email from the Office of Graduate Studies.

Offer of Admission and Submitting your Response

Welcome to the University of Guelph and our graduate community. We hope you choose Guelph!

As of June 1st, the Office of Graduate Studies will begin sending Offers of Admission electronically. Below you will find two processes to accept/decline the offer of admission based on whether you received a hard copy paper offer or received an electronic offer of admission. Please respond to your offer accordingly.

If you are not accepted for graduate studies at the University of Guelph, you will be notified via email.

Paper Offer of Admission

  • If you received a hard copy offer of admission, you will receive official notification in the mail.
  • If you choose to accept the offer of admission, you are required to submit the hard copy response form.
  • If your offer is conditional, you are required to mail in all final official documentation and meet all conditions as specified in your offer of admission.
  • Once you accept your offer of admission, you will receive information about how to register via email closer to your semester start term.

Electronic Offer of Admission

  • You will receive notification via email indicating that a decision has been made on your application.
  • Log in to WebAdvisor, select Applicants, select Documents, and click on View Offer.
  • Your offer of admission will be displayed.
  • Read your offer of admission and guaranteed funding form.
  • Scroll to the bottom and select a response by clicking on the appropriate selection ( 'I Accept' or 'I Decline') prior to the response deadline.
  • The offer will remain valid until the response date listed on your offer of admission and/or the due date listed on WebAdvisor.
  • If you choose to accept the offer of admission, you are required to mail in all final official documentation and meet all conditions as specified in your offer (if the offer of admission is conditional).
  • If you choose to accept your offer of admission, you will receive information about how to register via email closer to your semester start term.
  • If you choose to decline your offer, select the appropriate response. Please note, once you select 'I Decline', your offer of admission becomes void and we can not reverse this decision. If you change your mind, you must contact the department directly for reconsideration. You may be required to reapply and resubmit all of the required documents.

Final Transcripts

The most common condition on your offer of admission will be the submission of final official transcripts. In order for a transcript to be considered final and official it must meet our transcript criteria.

Monitoring your Status on WebAdvisor

After you submit your response to your Offer of Admission on WebAdvisor, you can monitor and ensure your response has been submitted successfully. Please note there may be a 24-48 hour delay in processing time for the status to reflect your selection. Follow these steps to monitor your admission status.

  • Log in to WebAdvisor,
  • Select 'Applicants',
  • From the applicants screen select 'Admission Status',
  • View your Admission Status in the chart listed under the heading Status. Once your response has been processed it will read 'Offer Accepted by Student'.
