If you are applying online through EducationPlannerBC Application Service please e-mail your transcripts to the International Admissions Office right away.

After receiving your acceptance, original transcripts must be sent to TRU prior to the start of your first semester. If originals cannot be mailed then original transcripts must accompany you when you come to Canada.

If you cannot replace your original transcripts, please notify International Admissions on arrival. We will make a verified copy of your documents and return the originals to you.
