Official Transcripts

(This page is part of the official Academic Calendar)

Transcripts

Official high school and/or post-secondary transcripts are required to finalize admission decisions. To be considered official, transcripts must be mailed directly to Red Deer College from the educational institution or provincial government department. For applicants with courses completed in Alberta, we will order your official transcripts for you. 

For applicants with courses completed outside of Alberta, you will be required to request them directly from the issuing source and/or educational institution. Click here for more information about ordering transcripts from other provinces.

Note: All documents submitted become the property of the College. They are not returned to you.
 
Note: If you are still in high school or from out of province, please declare your grade 12 courses on the application so we can make an initial decision regarding your admission.

Note: If your official transcript is not in English, please provide a translated copy from the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Alberta http://www.atia.ab.ca/.

Applicants with International Transcripts (including Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents)

International transcripts may need to be assessed by IQAS (International Qualifications Assessment Services). If that’s the case, you might be charged an assessment fee. Go to International Admissions for more information including whether or not your transcript can be assessed by RDC or will require IQAS assessment.

Domestic applicants (including permanent residents of Canada) with international documents must have their official transcripts or IQAS assessment submitted to RDC by the international document deadline, per the dates on the chart on the International Admissions page.

In order to gain admission to RDC, official transcripts of all previous high school and post-secondary education must be sent directly from the issuing institution to RDC. The envelope must not be opened prior to arriving at RDC.
