The application review process begins with your unofficial scanned transcripts alone, however for North American institutions other than University of Toronto, please submit an official transcript as well.  If the decision is in favor of an offer of admission, official transcripts are required.

For non-North American institutions, in consideration of the cost involved, please do not forward official transcripts until we ask for them. The admission process can be expedited however if you elect to pre-order official transcripts and have them available and ready for submission, should they be required.

  • North American Institutions:  scan and upload unofficial transcripts + submit official transcripts.
  • Non North American Institutions:  scan and upload unofficial transcripts + wait for instructions regarding official transcripts.

When scanning and uploading transcripts, please include transcript legends.  Also, if the transcript does not indicate degree conferral details (i.e., name of degree, date of degree conferral), the document which indicates degree conferral details should be uploaded in addition to the transcript.  International applicants should pay particular attention to this point when submitting marks sheets—we require the marks sheets as well as the diploma/degree certificate, in both the original language as well as an official translation.

Mailing Address for Official Transcripts:  Graduate Administrator, Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, 33 Willcocks Street, Toronto, ON M5S 3B3
