After completing your online application you must provide CES with your official academic record.
Your official academic record (transcript) must be;
- Sent directly to CES office by the awarding institution, in an institution-sealed envelope
- You can forward the institution-sealed envelope to our office if the institution releases the official/verified academic records/transcript to you
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
It is your responsibility to make these arrangements with your awarding institution. CES cannot order these documents on your behalf.
- Official documents must be signed, stamped, and dated by the officials (Registrar, Controller of Examination) of the awarding institution
- Plain photocopies are not acceptable for this requirement
- Transcripts must be in a sealed institution envelope with an institution stamp, a seal, or a signature over the back flap
