  • Received in a sealed envelope directly from the Ministry of Education, School Board or sending institution.

Current and Graduated BC High School Students

  • Current BC High School Students should select the option "Send my transcript now and allow this Post-Secondary Institution to request transcript updates until the date specified below", and set a date of 1 year from the date the request was submitted. This will ensure that the Admission office will receive both your interim and final grades when available.

COVID-19 Temporary Update to Official Transcript Submission Guide:

Due to Covid-19 pandemic, we recognize that it may be difficult for students who studied outside of BC to access their Ministry of Education or request paper/mailed documents. In this case, in order to continue processing your application, we may accept unofficial transcripts received in pdf format (photos are not acceptable) by email to admissions@douglascollege.ca from a representative of the issuing institution with institution email address. In this case, conditional admissions would be granted, and official documents would be required before beginning classes at Douglas College. Please contact your Admissions Officer for more information.
