*Only color printed copies or color scanned documents made directly from the original report cards and diplomas will be accepted.  If the original documents are neither in English or French, they must be translated in either one these languages by a certified translator.  Copies of the original documents as well as copies of the translations must be sent to SRAM. Do not send original document. SRAM is not returning any documents.

Transcripts and diplomas

Even if you have completed university studies, SRAM requires that you submit your high school transcripts and diploma. If you only submit your university transcripts, SRAM will not be able to prepare a comparative evaluation.

Language test

Language tests are required for the vast majority of international students, whether or not they have studied in the cégep’s language of instruction. For cégeps with English as the language of instruction, the test to be passed is the TOEFL (IBT or PBT).  The Academic version of the IELTS is also accepted. (The TOEFL ITP is not accepted)

For cégeps with French as the language of instruction, the test to be passed it the TFI. The TCF general is also accepted. (The TCF Québec is not accepted)

To find out where to pass these tests in your country, follow the links.

Applicants can request while filing out their online application that SRAM produces this evaluation. It’s important to note that SRAM’s evaluations are used for the sole purpose of cégep admissions and are not provided to applicants.
