Online Transcript Request
Official transcripts are required for any Ontario university or college that you attend, have attended or have withdrawn from.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.
By completing an online transcript request and forwarding the appropriate fees, you authorize the OUAC to arrange for your official transcripts to be sent to the university choice(s) you selected; you do not need to contact the registrar’s office(s) directly.
You can access the online transcript request in your application by selecting “Transcripts”.
- If you are currently enrolled, some universities may require you to send multiple transcripts to satisfy different deadlines. Before making your request, check deadlines and requirements to ensure that you are selecting the appropriate timing, as you cannot cancel or change submitted requests.
- If you have already taken courses at the university you are now applying to, you do not need to request that transcript. However, if you make a transcript request, the OUAC will process it and will not refund the fee.
- Request only 1 transcript to be sent to each university you are applying to. If you have applied to more than 1 program at any 1 university, you will need to send only 1 transcript to that university. Exception: You must order a transcript for each affiliate, campus or university college at:
- Guelph and Guelph-Humber
- Western University (Huron, King’s, Main)
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, your university choice(s) may not consider your transcript(s) upon their release.
Transcript Request Fees
The OUAC collects transcript request fees on behalf of the institutions.
For more information, and for a listing of each institution’s transcript request fee, refer to Transcript Request Fees.
Transcript request fees are non-refundable.
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) you selected. Submitted requests cannot be cancelled or changed and all fees are non-refundable.
