Should I submit a combined application?

You are encouraged to submit a combined (transcript assessment and student registration) application if you are confident that you meet all the requirements and that your transcript assessment will be approved. A combined application will cut down on turn-around time and ensures your assessment results are available at the same time as your student registration decision.
