When you apply at OntarioColleges.ca (OCAS), you will be asked to “declare” all of your previous education. This is where you should also request and submit transcripts for admission.
Most school boards will electronically submit your grades to OCAS. OCAS will, in turn, transmit them to Seneca. We receive interim records when you apply and updated final grades as you successfully complete your studies. Check with your high school counsellor to see if you need to take any other steps.
If you attended a high school in Ontario more than two years ago, use the Transcript Request page in your OCAS application to order transcripts. There is a small fee for this service, but it is the quickest and most efficient way for us to receive your transcripts.

If you are bringing your transcripts in person, they must be in the original sealed envelope from the issuing institution. Ontario high school transcripts must be originals on embossed transcript paper and can only be considered after verification with your high school.
Transcripts from outside of Canada must be accompanied by an evaluation from a recognized agency such as ICAS, WES, ICES or IQAS. Transcript evaluations must be original (no photocopies), and we reserve the right to validate with the issuing agency.
Seneca will accept Canadian transcripts that have been sent by mail directly from the issuing institution.
Seneca does not accept transcripts from applicants that are sent by fax or email.
Please note: Seneca will not print, send or distribute copies of transcripts received from OCAS to applicants, their parents or any agents acting on behalf of applicants.
Transcripts submitted in person or sent directly from an issuing institution will not be returned and cannot be forwarded to any other college or university on your behalf.
