Effective October 1, 2016, all documents submitted to NAIT become the property of the Institute and will not be released to the student. Applicants wishing to retain their original international transcript can submit a Certified True Copy of their transcript as affirmed by a Notary Public. Students who are submitting their official international documents in person may do so at the Student Service Centre. Documents submitted at the Centre will be certified by NAIT staff and returned to the applicant immediately. The Office of the Registrar reserves the right to request original educational documents to verify authenticity of the credentials submitted.
