Changes have been made to how BC high school students will be expected to submit their transcripts to Queen’s University. This change will simplify the process on your end, be less stressful for students, and lead to faster admission decisions. Queen’s will now require BC curriculum applicants to arrange for their grades to be electronically submitted via the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). This will ensure that grades will be sent electronically to Queen’s on an ongoing basis.
Your students must arrange for their grades to be electronically submitted by establishing a connection between the OUAC’s Post-Secondary Information (PSI) system and the BC Ministry of Education’s Student Transcript Services (STS) system.
To establish this connection, there are two steps your students must take as soon as possible after they have applied:
We will be adding an item to each student’s “To-Do List” on their Queen’s student portal (SOLUS) outlining the steps they need to take, if they have not already done so.
When you submit updated grades to the Ministry, they will show up on STS and be transmitted to OUAC on an ongoing basis, provided the student has given their PEN on their OUAC application.

*BC High School students graduating in June 2022 are required to complete the Grade 12 Literacy Assessment to demonstrate high school graduation. UBC requires you to achieve “Proficient” on the Grade 12 Literacy Assessment to maintain your offer of admission. BC high school applicants who do not meet this level of proficiency will have their admission offers reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
