In order to evaluate your high school/post-secondary education for admission to a program, your transcripts/diplomas/examination certificates must be submitted to NorQuest College. In order to ensure that you provide the proper documentation, view the High School Credentials by Country Chart (192K pdf).
NorQuest College recognizes that in some countries the rules and regulations of the country may prohibit students from obtaining additional copies of documents, and/or institutions may refuse to send documents directly to us. In response to this, NorQuest will offer conditional admission based on scanned versions of your original documents that have been notarized/certified, pending originals are submitted prior to the program start date.* Alternatively, original documents can be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. When documents are submitted, they must adhere to these non-negotiable guidelines below:
- International documents can be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.* If Admissions receives scanned copies that are difficult to read because of poor copy quality after scanning, they will not be accepted. Scanned versions must be officially notarized/certified. This notarization/certification can be from a lawyer, notary public, commissioner of oaths, Canadian Embassy Immigration official. The documents’ authenticity has to have been verified in writing by a legal authority. You are required to bring your original documents with you to Canada as you will be required to submit these documents prior to the program start date.
- International documents can be sent directly to NorQuest College from the issuing institution. It is the applicants’ responsibility to contact the issuing institution for requesting transcripts to be sent directly to NorQuest College. NorQuest College doesn’t make any requests on the applicants’ behalf.

- International documents (originals or officially certified copies) can be submitted in person through our Client Services Centre along with a filled out International Transcript Exception Request form (50K pdf). The originals will be returned to the owner once the evaluation has been completed. Applicants will be notified when the documents are ready for pick-up.
If documents are not in the English language, a certified English translation must be provided with the documents at the time of submission. It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide the English translations and to pay any costs associated with obtaining certified translations.
If documents are challenged as to their authenticity, the college does reserve the right to request that the documents be sent directly to NorQuest College to be considered authentic.
* Scanned documents sent per e-mail are only accepted from International applicants (those who require a study permit) and reside outside of Canada. Applicants, who decide to use this option for assessment, will have to bring originals of their transcript on arrival for their studies.
