Receipt of transcripts from other institutions
UFV will temporarily accept transcripts emailed directly from a pre-established institutional email address. Transcripts may also be sent directly by the institution using courier.
Official transcripts should be scanned, including the back page, and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
UFV will not accept transcripts that have not been sent directly from the institution.
Sending transcripts to other institutions
Within Canada: Many Canadian institutions have provided fax or email addresses to which we can send transcripts.
US or international: We have a mailing service that can be used to send official transcripts to other countries, so no special arrangements have been made.
Submission of high school transcripts
We accept transcripts emailed or faxed directly from Canadian schools, or the ministry of education in each province. We also accept the originals if brought in to our office (we will take a copy). Email to email@example.com, or fax to 604-853-0138.
BC grade 12 students should request their transcripts be submitted electronically. To access the "Post-Secondary Selection Form" to tell the Ministry of Education that you'd like to have your grades sent to UFV, log in at www.bced.gov.bc.ca/exams/tsw/tsw/student.
For high school transcripts from outside Canada, transcripts and certificates must be official or original. Photocopies are acceptable if certified by school principal, head or registrar. Notarized copies are not acceptable. For mailing out of country transcripts, or where a fax is not an option, we recommend use of courier. Send to Admissions, 33844 Kind Road, Abbotsford, BC V2S 7M8.
No photocopies or student faxes are accepted. Find more information about official transcript guidelines at http://www.ufv.ca/admissions/admissions/.
