URGENT: Referees

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Does OLSAS need referees to send in the reference letter BEFORE or ON November 1st? I have tried to find information regarding this. Maybe I am not looking thoroughly but please if anyone has an answer for me, I will truly appreciate your help. I found out if transcripts are received after Nov 1 (since we've already paid), that is sufficient.  I have sent my referee a friendly reminder about 2 weeks ago and she said she will send it on time but I am a little worried... 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Pretty sure the deadline is November 1st at 11:59. Not October 31st at 11:59, if that helps. 

So they must have everything in by Wednesday night.

I just contacted Lakehead about it. They need by November 1st generally speaking; however, some schools make an exception. Lakehead is one of them. They stated they would accept up to a week from Nov 1st. But they also said that not all schools may be as lenient, you will need to contact the institution in which you have applied.


Hope this helps and I am in the same boat as you. Fingers crossed!
