Submit your documents.
You need to mail us the following:
- Official or notarized transcripts/grades for ALL secondary or high school, colleges, and universities you have attended.
- All applicants MUST disclose any prior attendance at a university or other post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad, regardless of whether they are seeking transfer credit. Failure to disclose this information may result in a rejection of the student’s application or subsequent suspension from UNB.
- If your transcripts are not in English, send a copy of the original transcript and provide a certified translation.
- If applicable, submit the results from any academic tests you have taken, such as SAT, ACT, Cambridge ‘O’ and ‘A’ levels, CXC or others.
- If you are applying for direct admission to an undergraduate program at UNB and are not exempt from our English language requirements, submit your English language proficiency test score (UNB accepts IELTS; MELAB; TOEFL iBT; TOEFL (paper-based); TOEFL (computer-based); MELAB; CAEL; CanTest).
- If you are applying to transfer from a post-secondary institution to UNB, you must submit course outlines to be assessed for credit transfer. All course outlines must be provided in English. A course outline (also known as a syllabus) is a document that typically provides a detailed summary of topics to be covered in a course, titles of reading materials, and the grading policy.
- If you are over the age of 21, you are considered a mature student and must submit a resume of your education and work experience since high school. All applicants MUST disclose any prior attendance at a university or other post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad, regardless of whether they are seeking transfer credit. Failure to disclose this information may result in a rejection of the student's application or subsequent suspension from UNB.
