Getting your High School transcripts
If you attended high school in British Columbia you can order your transcripts from the Ministry of Education.
If you attended high school outside of BC or Canada, please contact your high school or the Ministry responsible for Education in that location.
If you are a potential or current student who does not have the English or math prerequisites to enter a program or take a course here at Camosun, you might need to take an assessment test.
The results from the assessment test will either allow you to enter the program or course of your choice without the published academic prerequisites or indicate the level of academic upgrading to begin your work. Learn more.
