Transcripts and Degree Certificates

Transcripts

You must arrange to have your official transcripts sent directly to the Sauder School of Business MBA & MM Programs Office by your home university.  To expedite the admissions process you can also scan and upload your official transcripts through the online application.  We can use uploaded documents to review your file however we will still need to receive your official documents as soon as possible.

Transcripts must be submitted from all the universities or colleges you have attended. Your documents must be received in envelopes that have been sealed and endorsed by the issuing institution.  It’s best to have transcripts sent to us as early as possible, however we do accept transcripts after the application deadline.

If you have graduated from a non-English speaking country, please arrange to have all your academic records issued in the original language and accompanied by certified English language translations (English translation must be a literal translation of the original document). See "English language translations of transcripts and degree certificates" below for more information.

 

 What if my university won’t produce more official copies of my transcripts?

Make a photocopy of your original transcript. Send the photocopy to your home university asking them to: Verify that the photocopy is consistent with their records. Attest that the copy is a true copy by stamping it with the official university stamp. Put the attested, stamped photocopy in university envelopes which have been endorsed with the Registrar's signature or University's stamp across the seal.  Mail the sealed, endorsed envelopes directly to the MBA & MM Programs Office.

 UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan graduates

You do not need to submit UBC transcripts, as the UBC MBA & MM Programs Office will access these through the Student Information System Centre (SISC). If you graduated from the University College of the Okanagan before it was officially renamed UBC Okanagan, you will need to submit these official transcripts.

  What if my university won’t produce more official copies of my degree certificate?

Make a photocopy of your degree certificate. Send the photocopy to your home university asking them to: Verify that the photocopy is consistent with their records.  Attest that the copy is a true copy by stamping it with the official university stamp. Put the attested, stamped photocopy in university envelopes which have been endorsed with the Registrar's signature or University's stamp across the seal. Mail the sealed, endorsed envelopes directly to the MBA & MM Programs Office.

 

Degree Certificates

In addition to sending official transcripts, you must also submit an official degree certificate indicating degree conferral. For international applicants, the degree certificates must also show the degree classification. Transcripts from the USA and Canada do not need to be accompanied by a degree certificate if the transcript indicates degree conferral and the date of graduation.

You can also scan and upload your degree certificates through the online application.  We can use uploaded documents to review your file however we will still need to receive your official degree certificates as soon as possible.

 

English language translations of transcripts and degree certificates

If you have graduated from a non-English speaking country, please arrange to have all your academic records issued in the original language and accompanied by certified English language translations (English translation must be a literal translation of the original document).

To be considered official, transcripts and degree certificates, if applicable, must be received by our office in envelopes sealed and endorsed by your home university. If your university is unable to provide translated official academic records in English, you must arrange to have the original language documents translated by a Certified English translator, per the instructions below:

  • Make a photocopy of your original language transcripts and degree certificates, if required (do not open a sealed, endorsed envelope containing the original transcripts intended for submissions to the MM Office for your application)
  • Take the photocopy to a Certified English Translator and ask them to provide a complete, word-by-word, literal English translation, endorsing the translation with their numbered seal. 

  • Ask the translator to put both the original language transcript and degree certificate photocopies and the literal English translations into a sealed envelope and endorse the envelope by stamping their numbered seal/stamp across the sealed envelope. Submit the translations in the sealed, endorsed envelope to the UBC MM Office - do not open it.
     
  • Submit your original language official transcripts, and degree certificate if required, in sealed, endorsed envelopes from your home university to the UBC MM Office - do not open this envelope.
