Common Questions and Answers:

*Q – Do I have to upload all of my undergraduate transcripts?*

A – Yes, all post-secondary transcripts must be included, even if no degree was obtained or sought at a particular university (e.g. transfer or exchange credits).

A – No. All uploaded transcripts must be official (originally issued by the registrar).

A – Your graduate program may consider forwarding your application to the university-level competition as an exceptional case, but this award opportunity is highly competitive, and they must be able to put forward a strong justification for why you should be considered despite not meeting this criteria.
