TRANSCRIPTS

As part of your SSHRC online application you are required to upload scanned copies of your official transcripts from ALL post-secondary institutions you have attended. The transcripts must be scanned into a single PDF document and uploaded to the SSHRC application portal online when you have started your application. EVEN IF YOU ARE A NEW UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA STUDENT WHO HAS JUST STARTED THEIR PROGRAM, AND YOU DO NOT YET HAVE ANY GRADES ON YOUR TRANSCRIPT, PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST STILL UPLOAD A SCANNED COPY OF YOUR OFFICIAL U OF M TRANSCRIPT SHOWING YOUR CURRENT REGISTRATION AT THE UNIVERSITY. WEB PRINT OUTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND APPLICATIONS MAY BE DEEMED INELIGIBLE IF TRANSCRIPTS ARE MISSING OR WEB COPIES ARE USED.

FOR TRANSCRIPTS FROM UNIVERSITIES LOCATED IN CANADA & THE UNITED STATES INCLUDING THE UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA: only official transcripts produced by the University that arrive in sealed and endorsed envelopes (stamped over the back flap) will be accepted. You can safely open the seal and scan the document to upload to the SSHRC application portal – but please keep the envelope for your records. If your former institutions are currently not mailing hard copies of transcripts due ot the Covid-19 pandemic, but they can issue electronic copies, that is also sufficient. However, note that the transcript must be official and sent to you directly from the issuing institution/university via email. Please ensure at least one copy of the transcript “key” or “legend” from the back of the transcript should be uploaded for each institution you attended. NOTE AGAIN: Web print outs or unofficial copies of transcripts will not be accepted.

FOR TRANSCRIPTS FROM INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITIES LOCATED OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA: certified true copies are acceptable. These can be obtained from your home department. Each page of the transcript(s) must be signed by the department, and given that most University of Manitoba staff are working remotely, they can send you this document by email (PDF/scanned copies as email attachments). Please contact the administrative support person in your home department to request these documents. Once you have those you can scan them and upload them to your application online. Please ensure if there is a transcript “key” or “legend” that a copy is included by your home department for you scan and upload as part of your application.

Please ensure you submit your SSHRC on-line application by Friday, October 2nd, 2020. Late submissions will not be considered.
