Watch our how-to video on submitting documents

Once you apply and activate your portal, you will be able to upload your documents required for assessment, including unofficial transcripts — if applicable. Remember to upload your documents as soon as they are available to you, as they are required by our admissions team to make a decision on your application.


If you have received an offer of admission based on unofficial documents, you are required to have official final academic documents/transcripts sent directly from each secondary school, college, university or proper issuing authority to:

Brock University, Office of the Registrar,
1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way
St. Catharines, ON
L2S 3A1

Brock University reserves the right to withdraw the final offer of admission or revoke registration if there is a discrepancy between documents originally submitted and the official, final documents/transcripts submitted to Brock either directly or via WES Canada.
