Academic transcripts - Questions [MERGED]
« on: January 25, 2005, 17:27:04 »
They need High school, Cegep (grade 12-13, Quebec), and University transcripts. Problem is that I have no idea where to get my high school transcript. Do you think they would have a copy at my school on record? I graduated 7 years ago. Also, is it ok if I photocopy both Cegep and University degrees? Or do I have to hand in the official transcript with my grades?

I believe they need official transcripts and as far as I know, the only way to get them is to have the institution mail them directly to the recruiting centre. Most colleges/universities/etc will not give official transcripts to students.

Your high school should have them still. Just call them. I graduated High school in 97 and was able to get transcripts from them in 2001 when I applied to Queen's. I'm not sure how long they keep them, but it shouldn't be a problem.

You can also try contacting your high school.  I'm from Ontario and picked up a my notarized (sealed) transcripts from the "archived" central location in Toronto.  I also picked had a copy of my university transcripts mailed to me in a sealed envelope.  Along with both these documents, the CFRC demanded that I bring in my actual degree- the real thing with frame and all.  Best advice?  Contact your CFRC and ask.

Hope that helps.

Strange, I applied a year and a half ago for DEO. I only needed my university transcript and that's all I gave them, plus a copy of my degree.  I was accepted. Unless it's a new requirement (and I don't see why), I really don't think your high school transcript is needed for DEO.

2 years ago all that was required was the last 3 years of schooling. Whatever that is. Given DEO's requirement for a degree, it would imply that just university is required.

Also, when I went in, they just took photocopies, as long as what I had was an original or looked like an original, they were ok.

Make sure your high school has them.

When I had to get mine I called the school and asked to pick them up they said ok and I told them I would be there in 20 min.  But when I got there I wasn't on file (Your tax dollars at work) and walked away empty handed because somebody didn't bother to register me into the system.

Anyways I had to go to my other high school to pick them up which set me back about an hour on my way to the recruiting centre the next day and even there the lady was giving me a hard time because I said I was here to pick up my high school transcripts not my high school transcript.

But now I don't have to deal with thoose ding dongs for a while.

I'm dealing with CFRC Montreal and they want high school, cegep and university transcripts but photocopies of the originals are accepted. And they wanted a photocopy of the degree too. A good thing I kept those old high school papers...

Could be worse.

Check this out: a retired U.S. army oral surgeon agreed last fal to go back on active service at the ripe old age of 70 (no typo) to deal with casualties from Iraq. He has eight grandchildren, and retired for the first time in 1980. Vietnam veteran.

Anyway, once he agreed to go back into uniform, they wanted his high school transcripts. The school no longer exists. He turned 18 52 years ago - you do the math.

I think it's a bit silly to look at your high school transcripts for DEO candidates. I coasted through high school (good times) only getting high marks in my final year before university. Graduated university cum laude, and was accepted to the CF in good time. My high school transcript scares me and I feel for those who need to supply one if they already have a university degree.

My CEGEP transcript scares me.. But then I had to submit it to get into RMC, and I was able to explain it in the interview... apparently well enough to get me accepted...

Re: DEO needs school transcripts...

The requirement exists for high school transcripts because some officer occupations require certain levels of science and mathematics to have been taken by potential applicants.   Such as: pilot, air nav, aec, arty, armd and inf.   Due to some degrees not requiring the student to take these courses the requirement for the applicant to provide high school transcripts exists.   Potentially an applicant could be deemed not competitive for one of aforementioned occupations if they did not have math or sciences, either at the high school or university level.

I see your point kincanucks, those trades do require math skills that you could get through university without.

Question about Official College and High School transcripts
« Reply #14 on: May 27, 2005, 12:02:01 »
Hi, I thought I would check with you guys to see if you might know the answer to this question. I am going through the application process now and I have my Highschool and College Transcript. My College transcript though is unofficial, meaning it is not in a sealed envelope. Do I need an official college transcript? thanks.

They need the official ones.

If you are at a College where the 'official' transcripts have to be mailed directly to the organization, I personally would contact the recruiting center and find out exactly who I should be sending them to first. That will ensure your transcripts will get to the right people and not get lost in the system.

For myself, my University mailed the Official transcripts directly to me, and I brought the unopened envelope into the recruiting center with me and handed it over. That way there is no question of tampering etc.

Good Morning Everyone. Just a quick question about transcripts during the application processes. Does the recruiting center require both high school transcript and university transcript if I am applying as NCM? or would the post secondary transcript suffice? Thanks for the info! - Hammond

Question best and only answered with certainty by calling them.

Any info provided here from anonymous sources would be "best guess" which I would recommend using for my application process.

You only have to have the high school transcripts. However, the University transcripts in your file will never hurt you.

That is fact, as I was in a similar situation.

Bring both as you need High School for most occupations and some specialized occupations require certain High School courses. If you have any post secondary education those courses may provide the necessary prerequisites for the occupation in case you didn't take an advanced level in High School. The more information the career counselor has the better. Let them sort it out.

University Transcripts and other inquiries
« Reply #22 on: May 12, 2010, 03:13:19 »
After I recieved a call from the Ottawa Recruiting Centre, informing me that I did not make the second-round selections for ROTP for 2010, the recuiter started explaining to me what I should do in order to get ready for the next years application. He informed me that I should hand in my first-year transcripts upon applying in September. Problem is, I am not very proud of my performance the past year and I also intend of changing my field of study. Would handing in a poor transcript do more harm than good? I heard I get bumped up a few points regardless for having completed a year but with my change of program I might have to take another 4 years anyway.

Furthermore, he told me if I did not make next years ROTP selection, I was ruled out for ROTP. I thought CF would subsidze your tuition even when you had only a year left, but I guess this is not the case. I really need to make it next year, but I made some bad acedemic decisions and I just need to know what my options are. If I restart my education by taking a program that will require 4 years more schooling, do I get that extra year to apply? Also, is it smart to hand in poor performance transcripts or do I not have a choice? My aptitude went very well, I was told, but I don't want my first-year ruining my life.

Also, conversely could I wait a year, do well in school and then submit those transcripts or will the CF ask for both years anyway?

Thank you.

Based on my experience, if you remain at the same university you can't choose which years to submit with respect to your transcript.  They will include all of the courses taken at the school, courses taken on letter of permission at another institution or any exchange credits that you have. 
Have you considered taking some summer courses in your new field of study?  You would have those on the transcript before September and if there is a large turnaround in your academic performance it could only be looked upon favourably.

I am not 100% sure one rules for applying late in your degree.
However, in my case, I applied for ROTP last summer. I was accepted for subsidization starting in September.
In September, I will be starting my last year of university.
So it is possible to have only one year subsidized.
