"How do I get my transcript?"
"Where do I send my transcript?"
"Do I need to send my transcripts to the colleges?"
These are all good questions, but the answers will depend on who you are, where you are from, and what type of transcripts you are asking about. To find how to request your transcripts and have them sent to the colleges along with your application, click on one of the links below:
If you are currently attending high school in Ontario, you do not need to send us your transcripts.
Simply advise your guidance office that you will be applying to college, and your high school will send your grades directly to ontariocolleges.ca.
Be sure to check your online application after final first semester marks, second semester mid-terms and final marks are issued to ensure that the grades they've sent to us are accurate. We will forward your grades to the college(s) on your application.
To see your Ontario high school grades within your application please follow these instructions:
- Log in to your account

If you have graduated high school in Ontario, there are two possible ways to request your transcripts:
- Order your transcripts as part of your online application – If your high school uses the Electronic Transcript Management System, you will be prompted to request your transcripts online as part of your application, and this information will be sent directly to ontariocolleges.ca from your high school.
- Contact your school to request a transcript – If your high school does not use the Electronic Transcript Management System, contact your high school (or school board office) and request that they send one official copy of your transcript to us. Note that transcripts sent by applicants must be sent in the sealed envelope provided by the issuing school. Remember to write your account and/or application number on the outside of the envelope.
Your high school or school board may charge a transcript request fee. If your transcript is ordered through the Electronic Transcript Management System as part of your online application, this fee will be added to your application processing fee. Fees vary by school. The transcript fee must be paid in order for the request to be processed.
We will forward your grades to the college(s) you've selected on your application.
