Uploaded transcripts and test scores are considered unofficial. However, unofficial documents should be submitted as they assist in speeding up the admission process.

Please note that once your application has been submitted you will not be able to edit or remove the files attached to it. You will be able to upload additional documents through the My Student Centre page once your application has been submitted.

Upload a PDF, Microsoft Word or Text File if you want to inform the Admissions Application Centre of any errors or corrections to your uploaded documents. Please select Note From Student as the document type.
