Reminder for Applicants

Posted in SAGE Quick Links on April 14th, 2013 by admin – Comments Off

As an important reminder to all SAGE applicants: the SAGE application materials must be mailed to the Students Welfare Division at the University of Guyana.   

The SAGE application is separate from the University’s general application.      All SAGE applicants must have also separately submitted an application to the University of Guyana, either through the Admissions Division, or through their online application system.

Please make sure you submit the correction application to the correct location!
