With application deadlines as early as mid-January, we always receive a flurry of questions after the holiday break. One of the more frequently asked questions that York’s Office of Admission receives about applying to Graduate Studies at the University involves submitting required documentation.
Here’s how it works:
Within three business days after completing the online application and paying the application fee, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail from York. This e-mail will contain your York Reference Number.
Your York Reference Number, along with your date of birth, allows you to access MyFile and upload required documentation (i.e. letters of reference, supplementary forms etc.). It’s important, therefore, to provide a current e-mail address as this is the University’s primary way of communicating with you.
Plan your time wisely. If you apply close to the deadline, be aware that there is a 72-hour delay between submission of application and being able to submit documents online. We encourage applicants to submit all required documents as soon as possible after you apply to expedite the processing of your application. Continue to check MyFile for your application status and decision.
