Students must upload their ALL POST SECONDARY OFFICIAL transcripts to the NSERC web-site before an application can be considered complete. Even if you only took one class at a post-secondary institution, please do include that transcript.  Please ensure you include a legend for each institution. If students do not, they will be deemed ineligible for this competition.  For the USRA competition, NSERC UwillU          allow students to use transcripts ‘issued to student’, provided that they are UP TO DATE (transcripts MUST show all FALL 2018 semester’s marks).

**Transcripts should be ordered in January 2019, only once your Fall 2018 grades are finalized, as it takes time to receive them. Web transcripts will NOT be accepted.**
