Did any one of you apply just after 90 days of your graduation ? or even heard of anybody doing that?
A friend of mine applied on 101th day and we are very anxious !!
I would suggest that you can go back to the school and tell them that you have lost your previous letter and ask for a new one. Once you have the new letter, you can upload the same through special inquiry form

Hurlyhunk,

1. What is the date in the Letter of Confirmation from his/her institution? OR
2. What is the printing date on his/her transcript?

Depending on what document he/she received and provided during the application; if your friend applied after 90 days had passed since any of those two dates, then yes, there is reason for your friend to worry.

If not, then there is nothing to worry about. Even if the application is refused, your friend will be given another 90 days to apply for restoration of status. At this point, your friend should endeavor to get a new Letter of Confirmation and include it the application. If this scenario happens, your friend should apply for both restoration of status and PGWP simultaneously.

Good luck.

Cheers!

Hello,

1.Letter says she has been graduated on April 14 2015, however the letter was printed & signed on July 27 2015.
2.Not too sure when the transcript was printed but it does say that she graduated on April 14 2015

She has applied on July 28 2015 which is 101th day (also her birthday unfortunately) from April 14 2015 and applied on the next day the graduation letter was printed out and signed.

We have also written and uploaded a letter explaining why it was delayed. We said, there was a dispute in the library which prevented them from mailing the letter and the whole process caused the issue, not too sure if we had done the correct thing by writing a letter.

She has not stopped crying from the day she realized that she passed 90 limit, i feel very bad about her. We have contacted several lawyers asking for suggestions but they looked so desperate for money (except a few) and got mixed suggestions.

We are very anxious, she did not celebrate her birthday and even not talking to anybody thinking that she may have to leave the country for this mistake.

Any suggestions or personal experiences would definitely help her boost confidence. PLEASE

Hurlyhunk,

In my mind, July 27, 2015 is good enough. Do you know when her study permit (SP) is expiring?

Cheers!

Hello guys,
I'm gonna share my application details:

App submission: March 30th
$100 fee notification by CIC: June 11th
Paid the fee: June 12th
Current status: still waiting (122 days)

I just found this forum and wish I would have read it before. I have a question about the flagpoling thing. I have a confirmation letter issued on April 16th (>90 days till today), but I also have my diploma issued on June 5th (<90 days till today). Can I use this last one to attend flagpoling? I'd appreciate an answer from you guys since my SP expires on July 31st so if I'm gonna do this it has to be asap. Cheers to all the guys waiting like me.

Hello,

Good. She applied and submitted her application when her SP was still valid. No need to worry.

Deftones99,

I strongly suggest that you wait it out. FP will be a big risk for you. Both C-letter and SP have got to be valid, not just one. Waiting for your online application to be approved would be a safer bet for you.
Good luck.

Cheers!

Hello!

I need some advice. I finished continuously two one year programs, so I should be eligible for a 3 years work permit. What document do you think is better to submit? Transcript or 2 graduation letters? Transcript will show 5 semesters of study in total. Letters will only say that it was 2 one year programs. Or better to submit both merged in one pdf?
Would really be glad for some advice =)

Hey Guys

I have applied on 2nd May
Blank Update on 16th July
Raise the enquiry to attach receipt and got reply within a week.
Still Waiting (91 days till 30th July)
SP Expiring 25th august

I forgot to attach my 100$ receipt.I raise the case specific enquiry to attach my receipt in the application after few weeks and got the reply from cic that your document has been attached to your file. But they didnt mention any thing that what they have attached and what was my file no. in their email reply.

Till date i havent seen anything attached to my file on Mycic portal. I am still hoping they have attached the receipt but its not been reflected. Does any one did the same thing or have got any reply ??

Other question is that my course was 2 yrs. I finished it in Sep 2013 - May 2015 ( I have gone through 5 semester 3 academic and 2 coop) I have asked most of the people that they see the semesters you achieved. SO in 1 year they count 2 semester (Because 1 is vacation). So by that i am hoping i will receive 3 yrs work permit.
Please correct me if i am wrong here.
