Transcripts and Test Results
You are responsible for requesting official, up-to-date transcripts from all of the academic institutions you list in the Academic Background section of the application. As part of your online application, you will upload an electronic copy of all official transcripts, which are used to process your application. Official transcripts are defined as transcripts issued by the Registrar’s Office (or equivalent) of the university. Transcripts from other sources, such as those printed from the student’s account on the institution’s website or photocopied from a previous photocopy, are not official. One copy of the official transcript legend (reverse of each transcript) must be included. Do not scan the legend multiple times. Transcripts must be scanned (black and white recommended) and saved as a PDF file. Opening any sealed transcript envelope from your university and scanning the transcript will not render the transcript unofficial for this process. If you received more than one degree from the same university, upload one PDF file of official, up-to-date transcripts for all degrees received from that university.
Transcripts in languages other than English or French must be accompanied by an English or French translation provided by the institution issuing the transcript. Degree and graduation certificates must be included if the transcript does not indicate the type of degree and date granted. Transcripts submitted with applications become the property of Queen’s University, are subject to verification, are not available for copying and will not be returned to the applicant.
If you are accepted into the program, you will be responsible for having original transcripts mailed from the issuing institutions.
If applicable, original TOEFL or IELTS test reports must also be sent by mail.
Documents can be sent to the following address:
School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are aware that some universities are only sending official e-transcripts. If this is the case, please direct these to email@example.com for processing. They will let you know how to proceed further.
Please DO NOT send your transcripts directly to HQ Programs. We do not process transcripts directly and will not be able to count these documents as received.
