Transcripts

Up-to-date OFFICIAL transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate studies must be scanned as instructed (see instructions) and uploaded by the applicant in the appropriate section of the application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that ALL official transcripts from each post-secondary institution they have attended have been scanned into the CGS-M application portal. Missing official transcripts may make your application ineligible so please ensure you include transcripts for your entire academic history.

Official transcripts are defined as: transcripts generated by the Registrar’s Office of the issuing institution that arrive to you in an envelope that has been sealed and endorsed (stamped over the back flap) by the issuing office at the institution. Applicants are welcome to open the envelopes of the sealed official transcripts for the purposes of scanning and uploading, however, the envelope should be retained for your records.

For transcripts from Universities in Canada and the United States: official transcripts as defined above must be provided and scanned into your application; please note that one copy of the transcript key/legend from the back of the transcript must be scanned in at the end of the transcript pages.

For students who have transcripts for University work completed at an institution that resides outside of Canada and the United States: for these institutions only – we are permitted to accept certified copies of the International transcripts, as generated by your home department. To obtain these – visit the administrative staff in your home department, and request they print off copies of your International transcripts from your admission file. Each page can be marked as “certified copy from original” and the staff members initials and the date. They should provide them to you in an envelope that has been sealed, and they should sign their signature over the seal so that they arrive to you in that envelope.
