Important notes for Year 2/3 claiming offer online
For applicants who have received a conditional admission offer of senior-year entry (i.e. Year-2 or Year-3 entry) from Hong Kong Shue Yan University, please prepare to claim the offer and read the following important notes.
1. Why do I need to claim my offer?
Confirmation of study place (i.e. claim offer) is one of the required registration procedures. Students holding a "Conditional Letter of Acceptance" (conditional offer) need to submit a final academic transcript to the University Admissions Office to prove whether the student meets the admission conditions listed in the letter for verification before granting a study place to a student.
Students can also express their admission intention to the university through this method, or request the Admissions Office to re-examine the application due to reasons, for example:
A student holding a third-year entry offer fails to the admission conditions and would like the Admissions Office to consider his/her second-year entry; or
A students holding a second-year entry offer has got a final CGPA over 3.0 and would like to appeal for a third-year entry offer; or
A student fails to complete all graduation credits of his/her sub-degree programme at the time of offer confirmation therefore needs to postpone the registration,
the Admissions Office will review students' applications accordingly. In addition, students who have successfully completed the confirmation procedures or have been given a new offer will receive a Letter of Acceptance (i.e. firm offer) issued by the University. After receiving the confirmation email, students can enter here to download their latest admission letter. Please follow the instructions on the letter to complete other registration procedures on specified dates.
