Subject: Question for Indian degree holders
  The PR application forms ask for the following evidence for proving educational qualifications:

"College or university documents: certification of completion and the
graduation degree, diploma, or certificate issued by the college or university
and the evaluation committee;

Transcripts: original transcripts of all degrees must be submitted in
university sealed envelopes."

I would like to know if both degree certificates AND sealed transcripts are required. Or can I just submit degree certificates? Both my degrees are from Indian universities (REC Calicut and IIT Kanpur) and I am not sure how I would go about getting sealed transcripts from them, or if it is even possible.

Any help/suggestions are very much appreciated.

Hi,

Normally they ask for a notarized copy of the degree
and non-notarized transcripts in University/College-sealed envelopes.

If you are going to get in touch with your University for
the transcripts, you might as well ask them to include
a copy of the degree as well.

In any case, CIC expects one to put in efforts to arrange
all of these documents no matter how trouble-some it may
sound. Most Universities these days have their own websites.

My tip would be to get in touch with them directly, pay
their small fee and ask them to mail you the relevant
documents securely. I know it all sounds like a pain in
the backside, but trust me, you´ll be smiling when the
PR visa is in your hands :)

Good luck.

1) Make sure your degree´s and transcripts are in English or French (I assume they are in English; the institutes you mention are known to provide in English).

2) Make sure you have originals of these.

3) Make copies of these.

4) Get these notorized as "attested true copies".

For purpose of application that is sufficient.

I am currently based in Salt Lake City, UT, USA. Not sure what that has to do with the procedure.

Does not matter where you are in the US. The procedure to file application is same.

Your location is important. If you are in India, you cannot do as below. Since you are in the USA,
You could take your degree cert. and transcripts (in English) and get them atttested at the Indian Consulate. They charge you a fee for each attestation. If there are 10 certs, you pay x10 times.

I did this and my application went through. I have been issued PR visa recently. So I feel it should suffice!!!!

Best wishes.

"Hello Canada", thanks for the tip. Would you mind contacting me by email? I would very much appreciate it as I am very new to this whole experience and have a few questions for which I can´t seem to find answers anywhere. My email address is cc02568c@yahoo.haha.com
(The ´0´ is a zero. Remove the "haha" to get the correct email address).

Thanks.
