4. Submit Official Transcripts
If you receive an offer of admission, you will be required to submit an official transcript for each post-secondary institution. If you have a degree in progress, your offer of admission letter will confirm if that degree must be awarded before you begin your studies at SFU. If the degree must be completed, do not send your official transcript from that institution until your degree is awarded and appearing on your transcript.
Either paper originals or certified copies. In some cases, we can accept official electronic transcripts.
We can receive transcripts electronically via a secure delivery service, such as Parchment, directly from official institutional email addresses (your institution of study must have such a service in place for this to be possible). SFU's email address for receipt of electronic transcripts is firstname.lastname@example.org (Note: You do not need to submit SFU transcripts.)
You can arrange to have the transcriptmailed directly to SFU from the issuing institution, OR you may mail it directly to SFU provided it is in its original sealed envelope.
If your original documents are not in English or French, please include a certified translation into English or French and a certified copy of the documents.
IMPORTANT: Applicants from universities that do not issue transcripts are required to submit official documents showing contents of degree program completed and the standards or grades obtained.
