Original vs official documents
If you have an academic record or document in your possession, we refer to it as an original document. It is unofficial because it is open and has not been sent directly to MacEwan University from the issuing institution or authority.
Documents are considered official when sent directly from the issuing authority or institution(s) to the Office of the University Registrar (exceptions are rare). Document images uploaded to the MyDocuments tile or original documents in your possession cannot be considered official by admissions.
If you are offered admission, you must provide official documents.
You will need to make arrangements with each educational authority or institution you attended to order official transcripts or documents. Have these documents sent directly from the issuing authority to the Office of the University Registrar at MacEwan University. The processing time varies by institution and they may charge a fee for this service.
If the institution or authority issues your documents to you, they must seal the envelope and stamp or sign across the seal for us to consider them official. Do not open sealed documents.
MacEwan University is an English medium of instruction institution. For all academic records including transcripts (examination results, mark records, relevé des notes and the like) and qualifications/credentials not issued in English we require a certified English language translation.
Please scan your translation in colour (both sides, even if one side is blank), save as a pdf and upload to My Documents in myStudentSystem
Official transcripts from authorities or institutions become the property of MacEwan University. Admissions may ask to examine your original credentials (those in your possession like degree parchments). We will advise you via your myMacEwan email, which you should monitor throughout the admissions process.
