All students, regardless of location, are required to, but not limited to:

- Submit copies of transcripts to email@example.com.
- Beal University Canada can only accept Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
Request your High School, College Transcripts or GED
Candidates for admission who have earned a high school diploma must request that their high school submit a final, official copy of their transcript to Beal University Canada. The transcript should include the applicant’s name and date of graduation. Transcripts must be mailed or electronically submitted from the high school or adult education facility, directly to Beal University Canada. Transcripts carried by an applicant and faxed copies of transcripts will not be considered official and will not be accepted. Adequate documentation of a high school diploma means one recognized by the state in which the high school is located. Applicants who cannot provide adequate documentation of a high school diploma will be asked to sit for a GED.
Post-Secondary Education Applicants who have attended or graduated from an accredited post-secondary institution may use an official transcript as proof of graduation. Transcripts must be mailed or electronically submitted from the postsecondary institution, directly to Beal University. Transcripts carried by an applicant and faxed copies of transcripts will not be considered official and will not be accepted.
General Equivalency Diploma (GED)
Applicants who have earned their GED must request an official copy to be mailed or electronically submitted from the state it was issued in, or GED testing site, directly to Beal University. The GED should include the applicant’s name and reflect a passing score. Copies of GEDs carried by an applicant, and faxed copies of GEDs, will not be considered official and will not be accepted. Please be advised that there may be a fee for requesting a copy of your GED; the applicant is responsible for payment of this fee. GEDs will also be accepted from DiplomaSender.com as well (electronic or mailed copies). The applicant is still responsible for payment if having his/her GED sent from this site.
Home- School Applicants
Applicants who have earned their high school diploma through home-school education in Maine must provide passing GED scores, unless a high school diploma was awarded by a state-approved public or private school, recognizing the home-school education received by the applicant as legitimate. The Admissions Office will verify whether or not the public or private school is state-approved. If an applicant received their high school diploma through home-school education in another state, the Admissions Office will verify whether or not that state issues diplomas for home-schoolers. If that state does not issue diplomas to home-school students, the applicant will be asked to sit for a GED, unless a high school diploma was awarded by a province-approved public or private school, recognizing the home-school education received by the applicant as legitimate. The Admissions Office will verify whether or not the public or private school is state-approved.
International (non-Canada) High Schools (and College Transcripts)
High school transcripts from other countries must be in English and reasonably equivalent to Canada. Transcripts not in English must be first sent to a separate evaluation agency. The University must receive evaluations directly from the agencies. The prospective student is required to:
- Contact a foreign credential evaluation organization that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES): naces.org/members
- Send all non-English transcripts to the approved evaluation agency.
