Supporting documents, such as transcripts, must be received by the University by the deadlines indicated on the website: ucalgary.ca/future-students/undergraduate/documents. If official transcripts are not available by the deadlines, students may provide unofficial copies of high school and post-secondary records to be considered for tentative admission. They may be emailed as a PDF or TIFF file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, they can be sent to us by transcript delivery systems such as Parchment or e-ScriptSafe.
Official transcripts are documents which are sent directly to the Admissions Office from the Department of Education and/or other institutions maintaining such records. Through APAS, applicants who have attended high school and/or another participating institution(s) in Alberta provide authorization to the University of Calgary to request transcripts on their behalf from Alberta Education and/or the institution. It is the applicant's responsibility to request out-of-province institutions to send complete official transcripts directly to the Admissions Office. See paragraph above for acceptable delivery formats.
International applicants seeking admission on the basis of documents which are in a language other than English must submit official documents in the original language as well as English translations prepared by a certified translator. Documents must indicate the courses studied and the grades obtained in each course.
Transcripts received by the Admissions Office become the property of the University of Calgary and will not be photocopied or returned to students or forwarded to other institutions.
Documents submitted, but not required for admission, will be destroyed. Students are advised to only submit documents requested by the University and required for admission consideration.
