Acceptance & Documentation
The university will email you to congratulate you on the offer you just received. You deserve some accolades. Out of many applicants, you have been crowned a qualified, excellent and brilliant candidate. Again, I say, congratulations. In the email from the university, you will be directed on specific actions to take to accept and document your admission. This may come in form of a letter for you to respond to, a registration link for you to complete, or setting up an official student account for you with the university portal. So, check your email again if you have not received any notification from the university.
Plan your finances
This is important, especially if you are a fee-paying student. Most times, the acceptance letter and documentation procedures involve payment of an acceptance fee or an initial tuition fee. There’s a deadline and there are other financial demands around this admission. This is the best time to plan. If you do not have a scholarship, then you should know how much exactly you are paying (convert to your local currency), and do not forget to include the transaction fees. Check out the cost of housing and medical coverage, travel and other miscellaneous expenses, and then develop a concrete financial plan and calendar.
