Ministry of Education: Student Transcript Service
The Ministry of Education distributes transcript information to post-secondary institutions (PSIs) based on the student’s selection of PSIs in the Student Transcript Service (STS). Students can pre-order interim or final grades to be sent to PSIs directly from the Ministry of Education. They may also be able to authorize select PSIs to retrieve ongoing transcript updates. Distribution to PSIs occurs through a variety of mechanisms: Students must create a Basic BCeID account to access their information. Once a grade 12 student has created an account, they can then complete their PSI selections.
Interim pre-orders for eligible PSIs must be placed by April 23 and final transcript pre-orders should be placed by July 10 Students may add to their selections at any time up until July 10, 2021. Students may make up to 25 selections free of charge within six months of completing their last course. After six months, students will be charged $10 per transcript.
The Ministry of Education no longer automatically mails a student’s final transcript to them after graduation. Students must first confirm their current address by placing an order through the STS website and choosing the “Send a Printed Transcript by mail” option. The $10 fee is waived for the first printed transcript order placed within six months after the student has completed their last course.
