Upload, as one single PDF document, up-to-date official transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate studies. Transcript text must be horizontal and include one copy of the transcript legend key. Only official transcripts will be accepted; web or unofficial transcripts will not be accepted.

Students are responsible for obtaining official, up-to-date, and complete transcripts and for ensuring transcripts for all post-secondary institutions attended are included in their application(s). The Faculty of Graduate Studies does not provide students with copies of transcripts from student records or copies of previously submitted transcripts. This includes transcripts from other Canadian or international post-secondary institutions, UManitoba, and transcripts submitted as part of previous or current admission or award applications. Missing, unofficial, illegible, or untranslated transcripts may deem studentsí applications incomplete or ineligible and will not be reviewed.

Up-to-date official transcripts are defined as transcripts issued by the Registrarís Office and dated or issued in the fall session of the year of application (if currently enrolled) or after the last term completed (if not currently enrolled). Opening the envelope to scan the transcript will not render it unofficial.

An official UM transcript showing current Fall registration is required, regardless of whether or not grades are displayed.

Retain the paper copy of any uploaded transcripts, as applicants could be asked to provide it for verification purposes.

For transcripts from international institutions only (i.e. outside Canada & USA), certified true copies of official transcripts are acceptable. Applicants can contact their home department to request these documents.
