Parchments

Parchments or printed credentials are awarded at convocation.  You will also receive a digital credential at the time of your convocation. 

When you apply to graduate, more information will be sent to you on how you will receive your parchment. 

If your parchment is damaged, lost or destroyed, you can request a replacement by completing a credential request form.

Request credential

Please note, this refers only to credit certificates, diplomas or degrees. Non-credit certificates of achievement or certificates of completion will be issued through the Centre for Continuing Education and Professional Studies.  

Digital credential

We use MyCreds™️ — Canada’s digital document wallet — to issue credentials and other official documents in a secure digital format. MyCreds™️ is the official online document sharing system of the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC). 

Your digital credential will be available on MyCreds™️. You’ll receive an email when it’s ready — if we don’t have a personal email address for you, check your SAIT student email. If you’re not sure what email address we have on your student profile, visit our online support.

Documents issued through MyCreds™️ are certified, official, and can be securely shared with other educational institutions, employers and other third parties. MyCreds™️ allows you to access your documents and share them as often as you need. 

What are the benefits of a digital credential?

  • Your digital credential is secure and cannot be altered or forged. 
  • You’ll have access to your digital credential anytime from anywhere. 
  • You can share your credential with future employers or other post-secondary institutions instead of requesting a paper copy from the Office of the Registrar.
  • Potential employers and other third parties can quickly verify your credential. 
SAIT has introduced MyCreds™️ — Canada’s digital document wallet — to issue credentials and other official documents in a secure digital format.
