Official Transcripts - the College requires official transcripts from all the academic institutions where you have completed a course and are claiming it in your application. This applies to any transfer courses as well. Once official transcripts are received by the College they are uploaded to your application. The College only accepts electronic/digital official transcripts issued directly from the institution(s) to the College. Digital transcripts issued via a third party (e.g., My eQuals, Mycreds etc.) are not accepted.

*Please inform College staff if the name on your transcripts is different than the name on your application so we can ensure your transcripts are received and uploaded to your application. If not this will cause a delay in the processing of your application.**
