  2. After submitting the payment, you will have the option to upload any supporting documents with your application. If you do not have your supporting documents ready now, you can submit them to the Admissions Office via your myBU Applicant Portal (information below), as a PDF email attachment to admissions@ubishops.ca, by regular mail c/o Admissions Office, or in person during our regular business hours at a later time.
