Q: How do I submit my transcripts?

Please send your transcripts electronically to cedmail@queensu.ca so that we can assess them and process your application. Mail services may be disrupted during this time, and access to the fax machine will also be limited. To ensure that you submit your documents on time, 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 (as a PDF) to cedmail@queensu.ca.
