Submitting Transcripts

Official transcripts from any university attended must be sent directly from the granting institution to Western University by the application deadline. Applicants cannot deliver their own transcripts. Western University does not accept notarized transcripts.

If you attended a university in Ontario, your transcript must be ordered through the TEAS Transcript Request Form (TRF). When ordering, please select the "immediately" option in the form. Graduates from Western University who apply to UWO need not order or send UWO transcripts; however, UWO graduates must order transcripts for institutions attended prior to or after UWO.

If you attended a university outside of North America, please have your home institution send an original copy of your transcript directly to the Registrar's Office. If applicable, the accompanying diploma or level of secondary school achievement must also be submitted. A certified translation of transcripts in languages other than English is required. Translations must be accompanied by the original document on which the translation is based. Acceptable translations are listed below:

  • made by or certified by the consulate, high commission or embassy to Canada of the country which issued the documents
  • a Canadian embassy, consulate or high commission in the country from you emigrated
  • an accredited translator (Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario)

Interpretation of Academic Credentials

As all applicants to the Bachelor of Education Program must meet the same admission criteria, we may require you to provide additional information so that your out-of-country transcript may be fully evaluated. Any applicant who has reservations about the equivalency of his/her qualifications compared to North American standards should contact:

    • World Education Services (WES) (*preferred)

      45 Charles Street East, Suite 700
      Toronto, Ontario M4Y 1S2
      Fax: 416 972-9004

Official transcripts, evaluations, and translations must be submitted by the application deadline to:

  • Professional Admissions - Education
    Registrarial Services (Office of the Registrar)
    The University of Western Ontario
    Western Student Services Building
    London ON Canada N6A 3K7

We do not notify applicants during the evaluation process of outstanding transcripts or other pertinent documents. It is the responsibility of the student to follow up to ensure that transcripts have been received.

In order to allow for sufficient processing time, please wait until January to check whether or not your documents have been received. No other information about the status of your file will be available until offers are made in February.
