Bow Valley College transcripts
An official transcript is a detailed record of your complete academic history at Bow Valley College that includes an authorized signature. An official transcript is issued as a secure digital document that you can share with any recipient of your choice.
Please refer to Official Bow Valley College Transcript Key for institutional transcript legend which provides information for understanding college transcripts.
Bow Valley College is now issuing secured electronic transcripts through MyCreds™ platform. The college is no longer printing and mailing official sealed paper transcripts to learners or any other recipients.
Bow Valley College utilizes MyCreds™ to issue official transcripts and other verified documents in a secure digital format. MyCreds™ is the official transcript and document sharing system of the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada in partnership with Digitary, a leading digital credential platform for certifying, sharing and verifying academic documents. Digital transcripts issued through MyCreds™ are certified and official, and can be securely provided to educational institutions, employers, and other organizations. Learners and graduates will also be able to download PDF copies of their transcripts and documents from MyCreds platform and print out unofficial paper copies of their transcripts from the PDFs.
As of July 1, there will be a $12 fee charged for an Official Transcript.
Learners will not have to pay to view their documents in MyCreds platform. However, payments will be required for each document share that they make with the recipient(s) of their choice, or when they download their document in PDF file format. Please refer to the 2021/22 Mandatory non-instructional fees chart for more detailed fee structure for the documents issued through MyCreds.
How to request an official Bow Valley College transcript
Important: There is a different process for sending transcripts to college and universities in Alberta—see further down.
Official transcripts will be issued automatically to each learner once official graduation from a post-secondary program has been confirmed. These should not be requested separately.
Official transcripts will not be issued if there are outstanding financial obligations to Bow Valley College.
- Complete the Request for Official Transcripts form.
- Email the completed form to email@example.com.
- When your digital transcript is ready, you will receive an email confirmation from MyCreds to your personal email account with instructions for retrieving and sharing your document with recipients of your choice. Please make sure that it is the same personal email account that we have on your learner record and that you provided on the Request for Official Transcripts form. Please note that the recipient will not be able to access your transcript unless you share it with them in your MyCreds account. Please review the Retrieving MyCred Documents Tips Sheet (PDF) for more information and detailed instructions.
If you have previously created MyCreds account using your MyBVC email address, or a personal email account different from the one you provided to the College now, please make sure to add the new personal email account to your Profile Settings under your existing MyCreds account. Please review page 3 of the instructions document above for details on how to do that. This will allow you to access the document that was issued to your personal email account within your existing MyCreds account.
For more information about how to use MyCreds platform to access and share your official documents, please visit the MyCreds FAQs web page.
