Official Transcripts

An official transcript is a detailed record of your academic history at Seneca that carries an authorized signature. Official transcripts can be requested as a secure digital document.

Seneca is using a new Canadian digital credential platform called MyCreds to issue academic documents electronically. These digital transcripts are certified and considered official, and can be shared securely with educational institutions, employers and other third parties. These documents are requested through Student Home and delivered through the MyCreds Portal.

Official transcripts must be requested using one of the methods outlined below, and a fee of $10 plus $1.30 HST is charged for each copy.

Official transcripts will not be issued if there are outstanding financial obligations to Seneca.
