Step 3. Submit Documents

If you are studying in Canada

If you are enrolled in any International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) classes, you must arrange for an official transcript to be sent to us directly by the IB Organization or the College Board (AP) when these classes have been completed. This document appears on your checklist as "Post-Secondary Transcript"; these classes may be evaluated for transfer credit.

Applying in your first semester of Grade 12

After submitting your application, send us a copy of your Grade 11 report card or transcript and a list or timetable of all of your Grade 12 classes. This can be sent to us by email, mail, or fax. This document appears on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks" and may be used to consider you for early (conditional) admission.

Submit a copy of your Semester One report card or transcript as soon as marks are available, including midterm marks for non-semestered subjects. Include an updated list or timetable of the classes you will be taking in Semester Two. These can be sent to us by email, mail or fax. This will also appear on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks" and may be required to consider you for admission to some colleges/programs, as well as for awards. 

Arrange for your final, official high school transcript to be sent to us directly by the approved authority in your province upon completion of Grade 12. This document appears on your checklist as "High School Transcript".

After submitting your application, send us a copy of your most up-to-date report card or transcript showing your final grades for Grade 11 and for Semester One of Grade 12, including midterm marks for any non-semestered classes. Include a list or timetable of your Semester Two classes. These can be sent to us by email, mail or fax. This document appears on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks" and may be used to consider you for early (conditional) admission.

Arrange for your final, official high school transcript to be sent to us directly by the approved authority in your province upon completion of Grade 12. This document appears on your checklist as "High School Transcript".

Applying after graduating from Grade 12

After submitting your application, arrange for your final, official high school transcript to be sent to us directly by the approved authority in the province where you completed high school. This document will appear on your checklist as "High School Transcript".

If you are or have been a student at another post-secondary institution, send us a copy of your unofficial transcript(s) listing grades for any classes you have completed and listing any classes in which you are currently enrolled. This can be sent to us by email, mail or fax. This document will appear on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks" and may, in some cases, be used to consider you for early (conditional) admission.

Following the completion of courses, arrange for the submission of your final official transcript(s) from any post-secondary institution(s) you have attended. A complete record of your previous post-secondary education is required. Transcripts must be sent to us directly by the institution(s) you attended to be considered official and must not list any outstanding classes in order to be considered complete. This will appear on your checklist as "Post-Secondary Transcript".

If you are studying outside of Canada

If you are currently completing secondary-level study outside of Canada, send a copy of your most up-to-date report card or transcript to us showing marks for any classes you have completed and listing any subjects in which you are currently enrolled. This can be sent to us by email, mail or fax and will appear on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks". A preliminary statement of marks may be used to consider you for early (conditional) admission.

Upon graduation, you must arrange for your final, official transcript to be sent by postal mail or courier directly to the University of Saskatchewan by the appropriate issuing authority in your country/region. This document will appear on your checklist as "High School Transcript". You can refer to our International Fact Sheets to learn which documents may be required for students from your country.

If you are currently enrolled in another post-secondary institution, send us an unofficial transcript or a preliminary statement of marks that shows grades for any classes you have completed and listing any subjects in which you are currently enrolled. This can be sent to us by email, mail or fax and will appear on your checklist as "Preliminary Statement of Marks". A preliminary statement of marks may be used to consider you for a conditional admission.

When you have completed classes at another post-secondary institution, you must arrange for an official transcript to be sent directly from the institution you attended to the University of Saskatchewan via postal mail or courier. Transcripts submitted by the applicant or sent by another party other than the issuing institution will not be considered official, nor will any documents listing any outstanding classes be considered complete. This document will appear on your checklist as "Post-Secondary Transcript".

Please note that any documents submitted during the application and admission process become property of the University of Saskatchewan and cannot be released to a third party.

Documents sent via courier should be marked as "educational documents" and should indicate an estimated value of $0. The University of Saskatchewan will not accept packages if customs charges are incurred. All charges for sending documents by postal mail or courier are the responsibility of the sender.

Final, official transcripts will be required before transfer credit will be assessed.
