  • A completed Application for Admission Form via email with photo attached, and payment of the non-refundable application fee using online payment or wire transfer.

  • Official transcripts sent directly to the Admissions and Records Office from the registrar of each college/university the student has attended. Students applying for doctoral programs must submit both undergraduate and graduate transcripts. If the original transcript is not in English, a certified literal translation should be attached to the original.

  • A scanned copy of college/university diploma(s) with certified translation if not in English.

  • One digital photograph in JPEG format or two passport-size (2” x 2”) photographs in print

  • Passport bio-page copy or copy of Birth Certificate (in English)

  • Graduate Evaluation forms for the program applied to are to be given to two persons (not related to the applicant) who have interacted with the applicant in an academic or professional setting and are able to supply the information required. The individuals should complete the forms and email/post them directly to the Admissions and Records Office – the applicant should not have access to these documents. It is the responsibility of the applicant, however, to verify that the recommendation forms have been sent to AIIAS.

The Admissions and Records Office will assist in providing necessary information for visa arrangements. Each student will receive a copy of their Admission Assessment and Program Check Sheet before beginning their program of study.


All applicants must provide evidence of successful completion of an undergraduate program of study leading to a recognized baccalaureate degree or its equivalent (normally four academic years of post-secondary study). Some academic programs do not accept baccalaureate equivalency in place of a degree. If the applicant has taken prior graduate work, the graduate grade point average (GPA) will also be considered in the admission process.


For students who want to study on campus, it is best to apply at least two (2) months before your preferred starting date of classes to ensure that all necessary documents can be obtained and sent to the Admissions and Records Office for processing. Applicants planning to study for the first time at the Extension Site or online should send application requirements at least three (3) months in advance.
