Ladies and gentlemen, DO NOT FORGET to upload Supporting Documents to MyFile. If you’re ever wondering why it’s taking so long to hear from York University about a potential offer of admission, CHECK AND MAKE SURE YOU’VE SUBMITTED ALL NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION. [Check again].

In order to ensure you’ve submitted all necessary documents, make sure you have your student number handy and don’t forget your date of birth, because that would be unfortunate.

Here’s the jist:

DOCUMENTATIONHow to submit your documentsTo upload your required supporting documentation through MyFile, click on Supporting Documents in the left navigation.Documents must be in PDF format and a maximum of 2.5MB (for details about creating and compressing PDFs, visit Adobe.com. Uploaded documents become part of your application file and cannot be replaced or deleted through MyFile. If you’ve made an error in your submissions, contact Admissions at 416-736-5000.If you have submitted documents via postal service (“snail mail”), please note documentation takes several weeks to be processed and to display in MyFile. Please be patient, we are experiencing high volume. If more than 20 business days have passed since your documents have been sent to York, contact Admissions at 416-736-5000.Decision timelines: Vary greatly due to the complexity of the process.For applicants to the Schulich School of Business BBA/iBBA programs onlyInstructions for completing the Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

  • Submit only one Supplementary Information Form by the application deadline. Visit www.schulich.yorku.ca/newbbaibba for instructions and to complete the SIF. Late submissions will be accepted as long as the link is active.
  • After you’ve completed the form, we suggest that you print it for future reference.
  • You will be able to track the status of your documents in MyFile.

Depending on the program(s) you’ve applied to, you will be required to submit a variety of documents. These can include:

  • OFFICIAL Transcripts – although you can upload a copy of your unofficial transcript(s), York University must receive a copy of official transcripts to complete your application.
  • Letter of Extenuating Circumstances – maybe you’re grades aren’t as high as they should be to meet the minimum acceptance average, but “stating your case” would be an example of this type of letter

Note: All documents must be in PDF format and a maximum of 2.5MB.

This is the space where you can come and decide your future with no pressure(s). I like funny things, like watching people get scared. Hilarious.
