About the Application Process

Submitted Required Documentation & Have Not Received School’s Response

It is important that applicants contact their schools if they have not received a response after submitting all their required documentation. When contacting the admissions office by email, applicants must state information such as their full name and the date they sent all required documentation by express mail in order to receive a prompt response from their school. It is ideal that applicants follow-up with schools after sending their required documentation to confirm its delivery in order to avoid delay in the application process.

E-mail Sample:

Subject: Inquiring the Status of my Application
Dear Sir or Madam:

On April 10, I applied to your 8-week Intensive English Course beginning on September 1, 2020 through ApplyESL.com’s online application service.

I am writing to confirm I sent the required documentation to complete the application process by Air Mail on May 1, 2020.

Nearly two weeks have passed since I sent the documents and I have not yet received your response. I would very much appreciate it if you could inform me of the current condition of my application.

I am looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Henri Tatou
