Applicants who have completed university studies in Ontario must complete the OUAC TRANSCRIPT REQUEST FORM (choose “IMMEDIATE” option). As Brock will consider courses completed by January 1, 2014, Ontario applicants currently registered in courses may order and submit an additional official transcript showing fall term grades. Choose the “END OF FALL TERM” option to order the second transcript. The second transcript must be received on or before January 24, 2014.
All other transcripts (those from outside Ontario) must be ordered directly from the host institution, OCT or WES (see Teacher Education International Documents link).
Official transcripts must be received on or before the submission deadline date, as we will not accept documents after this date. Applicants are strongly encouraged to send application packages well in advance of the deadline. The use of registered mail or courier service is strongly recommended as Brock University cannot be held responsible for mail delivery timelines
*Note 1: Recent graduates from Brock University need not order or send Brock transcripts. However, if it has been longer than five years since graduating from Brock University, there are two exceptions where transcripts must be submitted.
(1) You must provide transcripts for any courses completed on Letter of Permission.
(2) You must provide transcripts for any courses that were used for advanced standing toward your Brock degree (i.e. college or other university transcripts).
*Note 2: Regardless of time spent living in Canada or studying in an English-language school system, if your first language is not English, you must submit an English language proficiency test score. Applicants should refer to the Teacher Education English Language Proficiency Requirements link for details. Brock University graduates who were required to submit evidence of English proficiency for entry to undergraduate studies should contact the Office of the Registrar – Admissions (ext. 3562) prior to December 2, 2013 for clarification regarding submission of an English language proficiency test result.
