Official documents refer to all documents sent directly from high school or post-secondary institution in a sealed envelope. Applicants may send an official transcript to the Admissions Office or submit the document in person, providing the official transcript remains in the original sealed envelope from the institution.
The Admissions Office may require a scanned copy of supporting documents such as a marriage certificate, birth certificate, driver’s license, or passport to confirm name change or proof of age. Do not mail originals.
Documents in a language other than English must be accompanied with a notarized English translation. The certified translator must indicate in writing they received the transcripts in a sealed envelope.
English language proficiency results must be sent directly from the Testing Centre, except TOEFL which may also be sent electronically directly through TOEFL (ETS) if preferred.
