Transcript request (for Current and Former Students)
Information about requesting official degree transcripts (including fees) is available from the University of Toronto - University Registrar's Office. (Note that transcripts will not show conferral of a degree until after the convocation period in which a student graduates; students who have completed all program requirements but have not yet graduated can instead request a letter confirming this, as described in the next section).

Letter request (for Current Students)
If you are requesting an official letter certifying completion of your degree requirements, your registration status, or your legal status in Canada, please complete the online Ancillary Fees Form below. Note that submission of the form requires online payment ($8.00 CAD, effective May 1, 2023 fee will increase to $11.00); your request will not be processed without payment.
Note: the ROSE can only certify information which it manages; some information is instead managed within a student's department. Examples include: good academic standing, progress towards program completion, internships, comprehensive examinations, supervisory committee composition, and other details about a student's program. For documentation of this type of information, students should instead contact the department.
*Please note: Due to COVID-19, only electronic letters are available at this time.
Certification of Degree (for Alumni)
For a fee, alumni can request a certification of degree from the Office of Convocation. (Former students who are still awaiting graduation are not yet considered alumni and should instead request a letter confirming completion of degree requirements, as described in the previous section.)
Degree Verification Service (for Third Parties)
For a fee, third parties can request verification that an individual has received a University of Toronto degree. Please visit the University of Toronto Verification of Degree website. Note: in accordance with University policy, this is the only piece of student information that a third party can receive without explicit written approval from the student/former student.
Occasionally, teacher certification bodies and other institutions require official descriptions of courses from previous years. These can be found in the OISE Graduate Studies Bulletin. Course outlines and syllabi are not available.
Electronic copies of the Bulletin from the 2004-2005 academic year to the present are available online at no cost.
Copies of pages from the Bulletin prior to 2004-2005 are available for a fee. To request these, please complete the online Ancillary Fees Form. Note that completing the form requires online payment of $17.00 CAD (effective May 1, 2023, the fee will increase to $18.00); your request will not be processed without payment. Note also that this requires a physical search within our office; due to COVID-19 restrictions, delays to this service are to be expected.
Documentation in Support of Legal Proceedings
A copy of appropriate documents from the student file can be provided to lawyers upon receipt of a written request. This must include explicit authorization duly executed by the student/former student. Our file retention schedule depends on the program of study. The fee is $50.00 CAD, payable by cheque to the University of Toronto. (effective May 1, 2023 this fee is increasing to $51.00) For more information, please contact the appropriate registration specialist.
*PLEASE NOTE: student files are paper; due to COVID-19 restrictions, delays to this service are to be expected.
