International Senior Secondary School Qualifications

INTERNATIONAL GRADE 12 EQUIVALENTS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO METROPOLITAN COMMUNITY COLLEGE

Upper Secondary Documents — Certificates must be official or original. Photocopies are acceptable if certified by school principal, head, or registrar. Notarized copies are not acceptable.

Post-Secondary Documents — A transcript is considered official if it is sent directly to Metropolitan Community College from the originating institution in the original sealed envelope with the institution’s name and address imprinted upon it. The transcripts must bear the official institution seal or authorizing signature. Exceptions may be made when it is not possible for a transcript to be sent directly to Metropolitan Community College, provided the credential evaluation office can reasonably determine the document’s authenticity. A certified translation is required for documents in a language other than English (some exceptions may be possible for documents in French).

Documents submitted become the property of Metropolitan Community College. Only documents that are considered by the College to be irreplaceable will be returned to the student (on request).
