A conditional offer of admission is one in which there are outstanding conditions to be met by the applicant (student).
The following are likely reasons why a school may issue a conditional offer of admission to an applicant:
(1) Outstanding application documents like transcripts, English translation documents, transcript evaluation documents, reference letters etc.
(2) Failure to meet the specified minimum level of performance (i.e. low GPA) required for a program of study. In this case some school usually state condition(s) in the offer letter that the required level of performance must be met within a specified period of time (e.g within first Semester etc).
(3) Finally, conditional offers are usually given to students that have not met all the required admission requirements, it can be in any form you can think of.
Finally, I will like to sound a note of warning to whoever is holding a conditional offer of admission to study the offer documents carefully and ensure that the acceptable time limit for meeting the conditions stated therein does not expire before meeting the conditions. Failure to meet the conditions on/before the expiry date will automatically lead to the invalidation and nullification of the unconditional offer.
An unconditional offer will be issued as a replacement of the conditional offer if and only if the outstanding conditions are met on or before the specified due date.
I will advise that the documents to be used for an application should be sort in advance of the application filing, to enable student upload them with the completed application without delay. Transcripts can take a long time before issuance and evaluation services can take time too. All these and many other documents have to be sourced ready before submitting your application, to hasting the application review. Thanks.
