How do I make my offer unconditional? - Diploma holders from another university

If you receive an offer of admission it will always be conditional until you have sent either original or certified hard copies of both your bachelor diploma and final academic transcript to the RSM Admissions Office.

The digital copies of these documents that you uploaded with your online application are not legal documents and cannot be used to make your offer unconditional.  All of the conditions listed in your letter of admission and must be fulfilled before you are allowed to begin your master’s programme.

A conditional offer is an official offer. However if you fail to meet any of the conditions listed by August 31st, your offer of admission will be withdrawn. Please be aware that the admissions office cannot complete your enrolment until your offer of admission has been made unconditional.

No official diploma yet?

If you have completed all requirements for your bachelor degree by the 31st of August, but your official diploma has not yet been issued, you can submit an official graduation statement from your university. The statement should be signed and stamped by the educational institution and verify that you have indeed completed your bachelor programme. We also need a certified copy of your final grade list. The statement should clearly state that you have fulfilled all requirements for your bachelor programme and that your diploma will be issued at a later date.

Please send all documents listed as conditions in your admissions statement to the following address:

RSM MSc Admissions Office

Burgemeester Oudlaan 50, Mandeville Building T05-01

3062 PA Rotterdam

The Netherlands

You can also bring the documents to the above mentioned address in person.

RSM will save your diploma for one year. It is your responsibility to pick up these documents from the admissions office. The admissions office makes scanned copies of all documents for our digital archive and shreds all paper copies that have not been picked up on time.

Students with admission based on a study completed at Erasmus University Rotterdam are not required to provide this documentation, as the completion of your study can be checked in Osiris. However you must make sure that you have completed all the requirements of the study and have requested your diploma on time. RSM will notify you once the completion of your study has been verified.
