International documents

COVID-19 Update

We have been monitoring developments globally with respect to the school closures and test postponements/cancellations. Ontario Tech University understands the difficulties that will arise in obtaining the required documentation, and we encourage students to continue working with their schools, national agencies and test providers to submit the required documents. We will work with all applicants and make necessary accommodations, offering flexibility with deadlines and documents as required by individual circumstances. If you feel your application may be impacted, please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.

International applicants must arrange to have the following supplemental documents sent by mail (courier or post) to the Office of the Registrar. (Applicant-specific details on required documentation are available through each applicant’s admissions portal.)

  • Official transcripts for all high school and post-secondary institutions you have attended.
    • High school transcripts must be submitted in a duly sealed school envelope and must include verification that a high school diploma has been awarded. This envelope can be sent to our Office of the Registrar either by the applicant or the issuing high school.
    • Post-secondary transcripts must be sent to our Office of the Registrar directly by the issuing institution in order to be considered official. Post-secondary transcripts submitted in any other way will be considered copies.
    • In very special cases, the university may accept a notarized copy (in English) of original documents if official documents cannot be obtained.
    • Students currently enrolled in courses should submit midterm or predicted results from their school.
    • We accept a World Education Services (WES) ICAP - Course by Course Evaluation (which includes copies of the original transcripts) as an official transcript for the purposes of admissions and transfer credit. 
  • Documents issued by third parties other than secondary/post-secondary schools such as examination authorities (e.g., CXC, GCE/GCSE awarding organizations, etc.) and government authorities: to be considered official, documents must be sent directly to the university by the issuing institution, duly sealed in institutional envelopes.
  • In cases where a translation is required, the applicant must take copies of his or her relevant documents, have a certified translator duly translate and certify the documents and have them (the copies and the corresponding translations) submitted to the university, duly sealed by the translator. For each document translated and submitted, an official copy in the original language is required, duly sealed in an envelope of the originating institution and submitted to the university as per the instructions above.

Please note: all documents submitted in support of an application become the property of the university and will not be returned to the applicant.

Please ensure that when you apply via the Ontario Universities' Application Centre, you indicate your name exactly as it appears on your passport. In addition, all documentation submitted in support of an application must state the same name.
