Request Official Transcripts

Students must arrange to have official high school and any other official transcripts sent to the Registrar’s Office.  If you are still attending high school when applying, please forward interim grades from your Grade 12 year.  Alberta students use this link to order your high school transcripts.  You can submit a Detailed Academic Report as an interim transcript.  (PLEASE NOTE:  Vanguard is not a part of ApplyAlberta so you have to go to "Order Transcripts Using myPass")

Photocopies from the student are only considered interim and are not official transcripts.  If you send an interim transcript or order a transcript before you complete your High School Diploma, you will still need to order an official transcript once your diploma is completed.

An official transcript is one that has been received directly from the institution. Official transcripts are printed on official transcript paper and must bear an embossed or raised seal.  (See Sample)
