ii. two references.

APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION 
All documents pertaining to application for admission are to be sent to the Office of the Registrar. Application deadline is March 1.

APPLICATION FORM
Application forms for admission can be completed online for the Office of the Registrar with the appropriate fee and supporting documentation.

TRANSCRIPTS
Official transcripts of the applicant’s complete undergraduate and graduate (if any) record to date are to be sent to the Office of the Registrar. Applicants from outside North America are strongly urged to attach official statements of the grades obtained and the subject matter included. 

CONFIRMED SUPERVISOR
A confirmed supervisor must be established before completing an application to this program.

REFERENCE LETTERS
Letters of reference from two professors familiar with the applicant’s work are to be sent by the professors directly to the Office of the Registrar and can be uploaded to the applicant’s file. An acceptable alternative to one such letter is a letter from a Chair or Dean on behalf of the Department or Faculty in which the applicant has studied, or from the employer where the applicant has recently been employed.

ENGLISH PROFICIENCY
Students are expected to be proficient in the use of English, both written and oral, when they begin their studies at the University of Prince Edward Island. The University requires that certification of such proficiency be presented by applicants whose first language is not English or whose normal language of instruction throughout their education (as recognized by UPEI) was not English. Tests of proficiency acceptable to the University, and the minimum scores that must be obtained, are listed under the Admission requirements for All Graduate Programs. Such students should make arrangements to take the test in time to have the results available for the application deadline.

REFUSAL OF ADMISSION
Limitations of funds, space, facilities, or personnel may make it necessary for the University, at its discretion, to refuse admission to an otherwise acceptable applicant.

ADMISSION AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Only those students who have a confirmed research supervisor who can provide the student with funding over the course of the degree (two years) will be admitted to the program.
