Yes, unofficial transcripts will be accepted from applicants whose university does not issue official electronic transcripts as a temporary measure. We will request official replacement documents when it is appropriate and safe to do so.
Due to the closure of the Engineers and Geoscientists BC office and the reliance on mailed transcripts from universities who do not offer a secure transfer of official electronic transcripts, the uploading of mailed official transcripts to an applicant’s file may be delayed.
To provide for expedited uploading of official transcripts in the future, we recommend applicants also order official transcripts to be sent directly from their institution of study to Engineers and Geoscientists BC. Please note that an official transcript or affidavit will be required before a practising designation can be awarded.
Applicants should first contact the Registration department at [email protected] to receive instructions on how to upload unofficial transcripts through the applicant portal.
