Countries where upper secondary transcripts must be sent directly from the upper secondary school (high school)
If you have upper secondary qualifications from the United States - or a foreign high school with American accreditation - you must have your qualifications sent directly to University Admissions from your school. This includes transcripts, certificates and diplomas. All other documents in support of your application can be uploaded. Do not send a cover sheet to your school for them to include when they send your qualifications - this could result in your academic documents being rejected.
Countries where upper secondary documents must be submitted via regular post
If you have upper secondary qualifications from Afghanistan, Bhutan or Maldives, you must submit your qualifications via regular mail - you cannot upload them. This includes transcripts, certificates and diplomas. All other documents in support of your application can be uploaded.
Be sure to include a Cover Sheet when sending any documents via regular mail.
