Notes

  • Submitting an incomplete application and/or documentation will delay the assessment process. 
  • Complete documentation must be provided for the program(s) of post-secondary study you wish to have assessed and verified. In most cases, CES will assess the credential selected without requiring documents for credentials you have previously earned. We do, however, reserve the right to request documents related to credentials earned prior to a higher award if we feel they support the assessment. 
  • Providing the required documents does not guarantee that the credential in question will be recognized by CES.
  • CES reserves the right to contact the issuing authority at any time during the assessment process to obtain information about the program completed and/or verify the documents, irrespective of the method by which they are received. 
  • All documents submitted become the property of CES and will not be returned or released to you. 
  • Contact Us if you require clarification of our requirements. 
  • If your institution offers official electronic transcripts, we invite you to select this option to minimize any delays. Please contact your academic institution to request that they send your academic documents to us directly to ces.transcripts@utoronto.ca. The electronic transcript must be sent via an institutional email address belonging to the appropriate office/department/unit that is in charge of academic document issuance or verification.
  • Please only request the official institutional documents (e.g. official academic record, official transcript, verified transcript, etc) after your online application is submitted and all fees are paid. 
  • Official institutional documents received prior to the submission of an online application will not be processed until all fees are paid and an online application is received by our office. This will incur delays in your application processing. 
  • CES uses your full name and your CES Student Number to match your official institutional documents to your submitted online application. Without the CES Student Number, any variation of your name may cause your official institutional documents not to be matched to your application.
