Admissions update for newly admitted students
(COVID-19) & FAQs

Updated May 26, 2020

Send us your final marks

To complete your admission, we need your final, official transcript (including final marks and confirmation of your graduation).

We are extending the deadline for receipt of official final results and proof of graduation to accommodate newly admitted students facing difficulties furnishing official documents. You may complete this requirement any time before September 1, 2021. Note: Although the deadline for receipt of official final results and proof of graduation has been extended to September 1, 2021, it is in your best interest to arrange for these to be sent as soon as possible. Once received, your admission file will be finalized officially and any applicable advanced standing or transfer credit will be processed.

If you have completed (or will complete) ANY of the following diplomas, exams or courses, consult the right hand column for instructions on how to submit final, official results.
