Post-Secondary Institution (PSI) Selections for 2019 Graduates

The Ministry of Education distributes transcript information to post-secondary institutions (PSIs) following the selection of a PSI by a student in the StudentTranscripts Service. Distribution occurs through a variety of mechanisms. For PSIs with XML data transfer capabilities*, transcripts will be sent throughout the year. For PSIs on the electronic batch process, interim transcript information will be sent in early May, and final year-end transcript information distributed in late July.

Students can access the StudentTranscripts Service at: Students must create a Basic BCeID account to access their information. Students need only complete their PSI selections once in the current school year. Students may add to their selections at any time up through July 12, 2019. Students may make up to 25 selections free of charge within six months after completing their last course. After six months, students will be charged $10 per transcript, payable on the StudentTranscripts Service.

Please encourage your Grade 12 students to review the three how-to videosbefore they make their PSI selections for this school year. Videos include:

#1 Registering for a BCeID and accessing the StudentTranscripts Service
