Q
Asked by: Thomas
Question: Hi, there has been a miscommunication between my travel agency and the embassy, that leads to a delay on my visa application. What is the latest date that I could arrive to the university without any complications? Given the fact that I will still pay my tuition on time? (Best case scenario, I would arrive somewhere between September 12 to 15)

Answer: Hey! There isn't a specific date as the latest date and it really depends on the student. Every day your not here is a day of class missed. You could be missing assignments and or other types of assessments. However that being said, students can drop and add courses until September 15 so it is likely you wouldn't be the only one starting late. You may be able to email some of the professors to ask for a syllabus to find out what you will be missing. Ultimately, it is up to you whether you arrive that late. If you choose not to, you should drop the courses you are registered on and email admission.status@smu.ca to defer your start date to January. I hope it all works out. Good Luck!
