Cancellation After Submitting Application

Applicants must contact their program’s admissions office as soon as possible if they need to cancel their application after submitting it online. In their correspondence via email, applicants must explain to the admissions office the reason why they cannot attend the program and clearly provide their full name, the date applied to the program and the course starting date. In most circumstances, the program’s application fee is non-refundable.

E-mail Sample:

Subject: Cancellation of my Application
Dear Sir or Madam:

I am writing today to cancel my application.

On June 10, I applied to your 8-week Intensive English Course beginning on September 1, 2020 through ApplyESL.com’s online application service.  Regretfully, however, I will not be able to attend your school’s program due to personal circumstances.

Thank you very much for your attention to this matter.
