High School Courses & Marks

If you are applying directly from high school, you can self-report your final Grade 11 and available Grade 12 high school courses and marks at the time of your application, rather than waiting for your final transcripts. After you’ve applied, you can also submit updated Grade 12 courses and marks as they become available. This allows us to process your application much more quickly!

You will still need to submit your final, official transcripts once they become available. If there is a discrepancy between your final, official transcripts and your self-recorded grades, your admission offer could be revoked.




If you have already graduated from high school, you will need to apply using your final, official Grade 12 transcripts. Learn more »


How to submit courses and marks on your application

Canadian high school courses
On the application form, manually enter all your final Grade 11 and (if available) Grade 12 courses and marks. Also enter any Grade 12 subjects that you are currently taking or are planning to take. If you are taking a linear or full-year program, you can enter a mid-year mark, as long as it reflects at least 50% of the course content. You can also update this information later to include more completed courses and marks as they become available.

Enter your courses and marks exactly as they appear on your transcript or school report card card. If there is a discrepancy between your self-recorded grades and your final transcripts, your admission offer may be revoked.

International high school courses
On the application form, upload digital copies of documents indicating your final marks in any Grade 11 and (if available) Grade 12 courses you have completed. PDFs and JPEGs (photos) are acceptable. Please ensure that the document text is legible, or your application processing will be delayed.

If you do not upload documents when you apply, you may arrange to send your documents to the Office of the Registrar at a later time. You must submit at least one required document by March 15 in order to keep your application active and under consideration.

If there is a discrepancy between your uploaded documents and your official documents, your admission offer may be revoked.


How to submit updated courses and marks

The deadline to submit updates online is April 15 for Fall admission.

If you are currently attending high school, you can provide updates to your high school courses and marks after you’ve applied, once new information becomes available. In most cases, once you submit relevant new information, your application will be re-evaluated. 

Remember that you will still need to submit final, official transcripts in order to finalize your admission.

How to submit updates
If you applied using the online application form, simply return to the application start page, and click on “Update courses.” *
