Students must complete applications on the NSERC online system, and submit any required official, up-to-date transcripts to their department by the departmental deadline. University of Alberta transcripts are not required. All applicants must notify departments of intention to apply in order to be considered.
At this point in the application process, transcripts are not uploaded and you cannot click “submit” online. Once all required documentation has been submitted by departments, the FGSR does an initial check for applicant eligibility and completeness. Departments will be notified of ineligible and incomplete applications. After this review, FGSR will upload students' transcripts onto their online applications and will advise departments once this process has been completed. At this stage, applicants can click “submit” online.
Note: If FGSR has up-to-date official transcripts required for their NSERC application on file (example: submitted and all conditions cleared for Admissions purposes), applicants are not required to re-submit them.
