Document Submission Guidelines
Please follow the below guidelines to ensure faster processing time.
Documents & Academic History
- Any schools indicated in the academic history on the application will require a transcript to be submitted, unless otherwise stated, in order to assess the application.
- Any schools and/or transcripts not indicated in the academic history, that come to light after an offer has been issued, will not be considered for transfer credit evaluation.
- All documents must come with an Official English Language translation if the original documents are not in English.
- Rename all of your files to accurately describe their content. For example, “University of Example transcripts”; all English language test results should be named “English Language Test”.
- Documents must be submitted in PDF format.
- Condense all related documents (by institution) into one PDF document. For example, all semesters of high school should be condensed into one PDF document and all documents for university should be condensed into another PDF document. This will ensure that you are able to upload all documents via the Application Portal.
An official transcript is one that is sent directly by the issuing institution or education authority using the sending institution’s security features (e.g. digital encryption, secure paper, or institutional seal) and has not been handled by the student in any way.
Official transcripts may be requested for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to confirmation of a student’s unconditional admission, transfer credit evaluations, scholarship assessment or cases of suspected fraudulent documents.
If official copies of documents are requested, please send hard copies to:
1520 Queen Street East
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada
Please upload encrypted digital copies to your applicant portal or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
