In-Person:

25-Aug-2020: Our New Westminster campus Registration & Student Services office is currently closed to the public. The JIBC’s first priority in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic is the health and safety of our applicants, students, staff, faculty and the public. Please do not attempt to drop off your documents in-person.

Note: Official academic transcripts, Criminal Record Check reports, and some reference letters may NOT be accepted by email. Please review the information below, and follow the specific document guidelines laid out on your program’s information web page(s).
 

1. OFFICIAL ACADEMIC TRANSCRIPTS:

JIBC Admissions will only consider the following transcript documents as an official:

  • Hard copy/paper copy transcript that is printed/signed/stamped by the institution or by the provincial Ministry of Education*. This can be mailed to our New Westminster campus Student Services office – see address indicated above.

Note: we cannot accept photocopied transcripts – these are not considered official.

  • Electronic transcript copy that is emailed directly to admissions@jibc.ca by the institution’s administrative office, or by the provincial Ministry of Education*.

Note: we cannot accept transcripts emailed to JIBC Admissions by the applicant – these are not considered official.

*If you are requesting transcripts from the BC Ministry of Education online, you will have the option to request the transcript by selecting the JIBC from a drop-down list of academic institutions, OR an electronic PDF via email (secure document download link). If you select the pdf option, please be sure to request that the document is emailed to JIBC Admissions at admissions@jibc.ca. You will be asked to set a security password for the document download. Please email us separately at admissions@jibc.ca to provide the specific password you selected. Please indicate the password exactly as selected. Note - the password will be case-sensitive.

2. CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK REPORT:

Please refer to your program’s information web page to determine what types of criminal record checks (CRCs) will be accepted for your application. Not all programs accept RCMP or local Police Department record checks.

Emailed scans of CRC reports will not be accepted. Please arrange to submit the original hard copy CRC report, with original stamps/authorization signatures, as given to you by the police detachment. These can be mailed to the address indicated above.

Note: The Primary Care Paramedic Certificate program requires that applicants submit an online CRC request via the BC Ministry of Public Safety’s Criminal Records Review program. Once all other PCP application documents have been submitted to Admissions, applicants will receive an email providing the link, access code, and further instruction on how to complete this online CRC request.

3. LETTERS OF REFERENCE:

Please refer to your program’s information web page for more information on the specific reference letter requirements for your program.

Emailed letters of reference are acceptable, provided they are submitted directly to admissions@jibc.ca by the reference-provider her/himself. Letters of reference emailed to JIBC Admissions by the applicant her/himself will not be considered to be official/confidential.

Letters of Reference mailed to JIBC Admissions by the applicant or the reference-provider should be in a sealed envelope with the reference-provider’s signature across the seal, then enclosed in an outer envelope to keep the reference-provider’s signature secure.

QUESTIONS?

Most other application documents not outlined above may be emailed to JIBC Admissions at admissions@jibc.ca, but always check the document/submission requirements on your program’s information web page first!

If you have further questions, please contact us at admissions@jibc.ca, or 604.528.5590 (or Toll Free at 1.877.528.5591) – menu option #3 (M-F; 9am to 3pm).

All foreign academic credentials must undergo a review process to determine the comparable levels of BC and Canadian secondary and post-secondary education. Applicants submitting foreign credentials or transcripts as proof of pre-requisite completion towards a course or program must first have their credentials or transcripts reviewed by either of the following bodies:

o   International Credential Evaluation Service (ICES)

o   World Education Services (WES)

Both ICES and WES will provide applicants with documentation which can then be forwarded to the JIBC as part of a program application.
