Alumni transcript requests
Transcript request information
Official transcripts are available to current students in good standing and alumni. Transcript requests from students with outstanding student accounts will not be processed. A maximum of three transcripts can be requested at one time.
There is no fee for this service. Please allow 7 business days for processing. Processing times vary depending on the time of year. Visit Canada Post for delivery times.
Please note: The Registrar’s Office is not responsible for transcripts lost or delayed in the mail. The Registrar’s Office will not process transcript requests sent via email. These requests will be deleted.
When a cover letter or attachment is required by the receiving institution or organization, please upload the document to our secure MacDrive folder and we will attach it to the official transcript. Please indicate there is an attachment when ordering the transcript in Mosaic.
