Alumni transcript requests

Parchment e-transcripts

We now use Parchment Ordering Services, a secure and easy way to order a transcript and/or enrolment letter.

When setting up your Parchment account, make sure you have all required personal identifiers (full name, date of birth, student ID and the last four digits of your social insurance number). The system will automatically pull your official transcript and send it to the email destination of your choice, within an hour or two. The email is sent using Blue Ribbon Certification technology and is a secure way to transfer your credentials.

e-Transcript attachments

Please upload your cover letter/attachment when requesting your e-transcript through Parchment and it will be included in the email to the recipient.

Medical narratives

In Parchment, order an enrolment verification letter for the medical narrative to be delivered. Select ‘Enrolment Verification’ and in the special instructions, please indicate it is for a medical narrative. All emails are from Parchment Ordering Services and your credentials will display the blue-ribbon certification symbol.


If you are applying to a program through OUAC, you need to submit a transcript request through the OUAC application centre. PDF transcripts are not accepted.

Paper transcripts

We encourage all alumni to use Parchment to order transcripts. If a paper copy is mandatory, you will require Mosaic access. Once you have access to Mosaic you will need to follow these steps to submit an order.
