A few other notes:

My summer student assistant has been working hard to contact students who still have outstanding documents so that we may send the sponsorship memos. We still need a few students Grade 12 marks, Acceptance letters (not conditionally accepted), or their Previous semester marks.

The child tax document is not needed for the sponsorship memo’s, however it is needed to determine living allowance rate, without it we will have to issue the single rate.

If you have any other questions, my contact information is below my signature.
