Transcripts from Ontario Universities and Colleges

Online Transcript Requests

Official transcripts are required for any Ontario university or college that you attend, have attended or have withdrawn from. You must request your transcript through your application, unless otherwise noted in the Exceptions for Online Transcript Requests.

Additional Information

  • If you have taken courses at the same university as the faculty of education you are applying to (excluding Wilfrid Laurier University and York University), you do not need to submit a transcript for these courses. However, if you make a transcript request, the OUAC will process it and will not refund the fee.
  • If you are currently enrolled, some universities may require you to send multiple transcripts to satisfy different deadlines. Before making your request(s), check deadlines and requirements to ensure that you are selecting the appropriate timing, as you cannot cancel or change submitted requests.
  • If you applied to more than 1 program: Request only 1 transcript to be sent to each institution you are applying to. If you have applied to more than 1 program at any 1 institution, you need to send only 1 transcript to that institution.

Transcript Request Fees

The OUAC collects transcript request fees on behalf of the institutions.

For information about each institution’s transcript request fee, see Transcript Request Fees.

The transcript request fees are non‑refundable.

The OUAC is not responsible for the refusal of any institution to provide transcripts (e.g., delinquent accounts, incorrect identification). If you do not resolve these issues in a timely manner, the faculties of education will not consider your transcripts upon their release.

Note: By completing an online transcript request and submitting it with your application and appropriate fees (application service fee, transcript request fees, additional choice fees and supplemental fees), you authorize the OUAC to arrange for your official transcripts to be sent to the university choice(s) that you have selected. Submitted requests cannot be cancelled or changed and all fees are non-refundable.

Transcripts from Canadian Institutions Outside of Ontario

You should arrange to have all official academic documents from outside Ontario sent directly from the institutions you attend, have attended or have withdrawn from to your faculty of education choice(s).

To ensure the proper document matching, indicate the following on all documents and correspondence:

  • Your OUAC/TEAS Reference Number
  • Your full name (in the same order as in your application)

These official transcripts must arrive at each selected faculty of education by the deadline.

Note: If you are currently enrolled, you may upload your transcript using Secure Applicant Messaging (SAM). However, this transcript will be considered unofficial, and an official transcript may be required at the end of the academic year if you are still being considered for admission.

Transcripts from Douglas College and Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Ontario universities have agreed to accept these transcripts electronically via the OUAC’s online transcripts process.

If you attend, have attended or have withdrawn from Douglas College and/or Kwantlen Polytechnic University, you must contact these schools directly and ask them to submit your transcript(s) to each of your Ontario university choices.

Douglas College and Kwantlen Polytechnic University will not automatically send your transcripts to Ontario universities.

The OUAC matches transcripts received electronically from Douglas College and/or Kwantlen Polytechnic University to your submitted application and re-routes them to each Ontario university specified.

  • Verify university requirements and note that document deadlines apply.
