General Category - Special Circumstances

If you feel that significant one-time events beyond your control, which occurred during your undergraduate studies, affected your academic performance during a specific academic term or year, you can inform the Admissions Committee.

We recognize that the COVID-19 crisis has affected many applicants. The Admissions Committee will be evaluating all applications with the knowledge the Winter 2020 term was disrupted by the pandemic, and that many institutions modified their grading regulations as a result. If you experienced additional exceptional circumstances as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can provide details to the Admissions Committee.

In order to provide the information relating to the special circumstances you have experienced, please use the dedicated screen provided for that purpose in the on-line application form. Be sure to indicate which term or year was affected. Do not use your personal statement to go into detail about the special circumstances you faced. Please provide supporting documents where appropriate.

The undergraduate academic record of applicants in this category will be reviewed in light of the information provided.
