Q: How do I submit my transcripts?

Please send your transcripts electronically to cedmail@queensu.ca to be assessed and to continue with your application. Mail services may be disrupted during this time, and we do not have access to the fax machine. To ensure that you submit your documents on time, please scan your transcripts, and upload files as an attached PDF.

If you do not have a transcript, and need to order one from your institution, have the official transcript mailed to your home address. You can then make an electronic copy of your transcripts, and send the electronic copy to cedmail@queensu.ca.

Q: How do I submit my confirmation of teaching experience form when the board offices are closed?

As schools remain closed, we will consider giving you a conditional acceptance until the board office reopens and documentation can be submitted.

Note: We will accept one of the three options listed below. We will not be able to accept emails/documents that do not confirm the requested information.

Confirmation of teaching experience form

  1. We will accept an email from the Superintendent.

    For a Part 2: The Superintendent must state: “I am confirming that [your name] has 194 days of teaching since becoming an OCT member.”

    The Superintendent must include their name, contact information and name of board in their signature line. We will accept this in place of the form (if you are unable to provide the form).

    For a Specialist: The Superintendent must state: “I am confirming that [your name] has 388 days of teaching experience, 194 days in teaching [subject area] since becoming an OCT member.”

    The Superintendent must include their name, contact information and name of board in their signature line. We will accept this in place of the form (if you are unable to provide the form).
