Receive a letter of offer

What are the steps to take when you receive a Letter of Offer (LOO)?

What is a Letter of Offer?

If you have received a Letter of Offer (LOO), you have been successfully accepted to the program that you applied to. 

There are two types of LOO’s that an applicant can receive: unconditional and conditional. 

Unconditional Offer Letters are given to students who have met all the admission requirements to the institution.

Conditional Offer Letters have specific conditions and are given to students who have not met all the admission requirements. 

What do you do when you receive the Letter of Offer step-by step?

1. Review the LOO

Review the entire Letter of Offer, including the terms and conditions and refund policy. 

2. Sign and return

Check that everything is accurate before signing and then return the copy of the applicant declaration. 

3. Pay the deposit

Pay the deposit. The deposit payment is non-refundable, unless your study visa was denied.

In case of visa denial, the applicant will need to submit a withdrawal form along with the copy of their refusal letter. Acsenda retains the $155 Applicant fee and a $275 Administrative fee. The remaining amount is refunded within 30 business days. 

4. Send a copy

Send a copy of the transaction receipt to Once all these steps are completed, Acsenda will issue your official Letter of Acceptance to be used for your study visa/permit application. 

5. Prepare remaining documents

While waiting for the Letter of Acceptance, please be prepared to provide your Official Transcripts. If you have completed a degree or diploma, please include your documents in a sealed envelope with your school stamp, either on the first day of Orientation or in advance. These documents are required in order to register for classes. 

What to do after the LOO?

After completing the process of your Letter of Offer, you should start thinking about what to do next. We recommend applying for a Study Permit.

A study permit allows international students to study at a designated learning institution (DLI) in Canada. 

The documents that you will need to apply for the study permit are as follows: 

  • Letter of Acceptance
  • Valid passport
  • Proof that you have the financial means to support your stay in Canada
