Academic Standing.

Each applicant's academic record will be reviewed according to ELU guideline as well as each specific faculty and curriculum eligibility guideline. For more details about these specific guidelines, please contact your prospective faculty directly. If a student's performance falls short, he/she will be informed by email.

Extracurricular Activities.

As you know, extracurricular activities are an important part of your college application. The things that you choose to do outside of the classroom help our Admission department officers understand your personality in a way that your grades and test scores can’t show. Grades and test scores have a massive impact on your application, but your extracurricular history can help you present yourself as a well-rounded, committed individual – which can be just as important!

  • Do not forget to obtain your academic record from your previous university or high school
  • For PhD applicants: prepare your reference letters in advance
  • If you have any additional questions, please contact our Admission department directly
