Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are sent directly from the Department of Education and/or any other institution(s) that maintains such records. They must be received by the university via mail or courier from the issuing institution.

What makes a transcript official?

Official transcripts are documents, which are sent directly to the Recruitment and Admissions Office from the Department of Education and/or other institutions maintaining such records by mail or courier. It is the applicant's responsibility to ask the issuing institutions to send complete official transcripts directly to the Recruitment and Admissions Office, University of Calgary.

Students who have attended high school in Alberta and/or an Alberta post-secondary institution, which participates with ApplyAlberta will have official transcripts requested on their behalf by the University of Calgary.

Please do not send original documents to the University of Calgary. If you have your own original transcripts, you may wish to provide us with photocopies, which are normally acceptable for evaluation purposes and will be considered unofficial. If you are admitted, we will require official transcripts to be sent directly from the issuing institution to the Recruitment and Admissions Office.

International Students

International applicants seeking admission on the basis of documents which are in a language other than English must submit official documents in their original language as well as certified or notarized English translations. Documents must indicate the subjects studied and the grades obtained.

IB Students

Your admission, advanced credit and eligibility for IB scholarships all depend on the University of Calgary receiving transcripts showing your final and official IB results. Please contact your high school IB coordinator for guidance on how to make the appropriate transcript request.

If you are not currently attending high school, contact your IB regional office and request that a transcript be sent to the University of Calgary Admissions Office. They will need your name, your high school's code, your IB candidate code, and the appropriate exam session. Complete contact information for IB regional offices can be found on the International Baccalaureate Organization website at www.ibo.org.

We recommend that you make your request by mid-June at the latest, as the transcript deadline is August 1st. 

Please Note: Transcripts received by the Recruitment and Admissions Office become the property of the University of Calgary and will not be photocopied for the student or forwarded to other institutions.
