Canadian institutions consider electronic acceptance letters

March 10, 2009

Like many US colleges, some Canadian institutions are experimenting with e-mail to notify applicants of admissions. Both Mount Allison and Carleton Universities e-mail students a heads-up that a decision has been made. Whether or not an online notification is used first, Canadian schools still send admission decisions through the mail. To add a personal touch, Mount Allison writes letters by hand, while York University hand delivers some offers of admission to students at their home or high school. CanWest News Service
