How to submit supporting documents for NUS admissions

All supporting documents for NUS admissions must be submitted through the NUS application portal. Below are the steps to follow on how to submit supporting documents for NUS admissions.

  • You are required to submit a clear set of supporting documents by the application closing date via the Applicant Portal.
  • Check the document status using the Applicant Portal 3 – 5 working days after electronic submission. If there is no update to your document status, you are required to re-upload your documents again.
  • All non-English supporting documents must be accompanied by an English translation.
  • Do not submit original certificates and documents as they will not be returned.

General guide on how to submit supporting documents for NUS admissions based on the previous application process:

  1. Online Application: Start by completing the online application form on the NUS admissions portal. Create an account or log in if you already have one.
  2. Document Checklist: NUS typically provides a document checklist outlining the specific documents you need to submit based on your application type (e.g., undergraduate, postgraduate, international student, etc.). This checklist will detail all the supporting documents required.
  3. Scanning and Uploading: Gather all the required documents and scan them to create digital copies. Ensure the documents are legible and in PDF or image format as specified by NUS.
  4. Online Document Upload: Log in to your application account and navigate to the section for supporting documents upload. Follow the instructions provided to upload each document according to the appropriate category (e.g., academic transcripts, certificates, identification documents, etc.).
  5. Certified Copies: In some cases, NUS might require certified copies of certain documents. Certified copies are usually copies that have been stamped or attested as true copies by an authorized person, such as a school official or notary public. Check NUS’s guidelines to see if this applies to you.
  6. English Language Proficiency: If you are an international applicant and English is not your first language, you might need to submit English language proficiency test scores (e.g., IELTS, TOEFL) as part of your supporting documents.
  7. Deadline: Ensure that you submit all the necessary supporting documents before the application deadline. Late submissions may negatively impact your application.
  8. Application Fee: Pay any required application fee as specified during the application process. Failure to pay the fee might result in your application not being processed.
  9. Track Application Status: After submitting your documents and application, you can track the status of your application through the NUS portal. NUS will inform you about the admission decision through this portal or via email.

Incomplete application by the deadline may affect the processing of your application or its withdrawal from consideration for admission.
