International Document Assessment
Applicants who were educated outside of Canada require an international document assessment.
Step 1: Apply to a SAIT program
Choose a program and submit an application.
Step 2: Submit your anticipated final grades
To be considered for admission or selection while you wait for your assessment results, you must provide anticipated final grades for the program admission requirements.
- Check the admission requirements for your program(s).
- Provide a reasonable estimate of your grades for each of the admission requirements.
- Complete the Anticipated Final Grades form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3: Email your educational documents
Send us your original secondary school and/or post-secondary documents with English translations. Scan your documents in colour and attach them to an email to email@example.com.
Make sure to include the following:
- Secondary and/or post-secondary transcripts, mark sheets and examination results.
- Secondary diploma or graduation certificate and/or post-secondary degree.
- Explanation of the grading scale often found on the back or the front page of certifications or transcripts.
- Original educational documents (in original language). If your original documents were not issued in English, you must provide certified translations.
- Your transcripts must show at least three years of consecutive education (secondary and/or post-secondary).
- If your name has changed, we will require validation of name change (marriage certificate, etc.).
If you have documents from the following countries, you must include additional information. Select the country for specific requirements.
|WAEC or NECO results accompanied by a scratch card and PIN number.|
|Post-secondary education transcripts.|
All documentation must be translated into English, signed and stamped by a certified translator. We will not accept translations from an associate member. We will accept translations completed by an official translator in your home country.
What to expect
Once all of the required educational documents have been submitted, the assessment will be completed within six weeks. You can monitor your application status at mySAIT.ca.
