    • Students will need the LOA (proof of acceptance) to apply for a study permit
    • Apply for a student permit: If a student receives a letter of acceptance (LOA) and there is not enough time to process a study permit and arrive in Canada to begin their classes on time (late attendance is not permitted), they can defer their admission. They must apply to defer one month prior to the start date of the semester.
    • Online study permit application video guides
    • For deferred students: Upload a new Confirmation of a Recruited Student Form with a new term for any deferred students. We will only provide commission if the term matches and if it’s uploaded within 15 business days of the deferral request. Deferrals can be made for two (2) consecutive semesters only.
    • To defer ESL studies: NAIT can defer an ESL student two times, so they will receive three, total offers of admission (LOAs). Students can count their LOA’s by logging into their MyNAIT Portal >Self Service > E-Letters. Send an email to esl@nait.ca no later than the deferral deadline noted on the LOA (usually one month prior to the start date of the semester).
