Pakistan Institutional Documents/Official Academic Record FAQs Related to COVID-19

I completed my studies at a university in Pakistan, should I ask my university to send my transcript to you directly?

If you completed your studies at a university in Pakistan, we require your degree certificate and your transcript attested by the Higher Education Commission (HEC). You can find the detailed document requirements at Country Specific Academic Document Tool by selecting Pakistan from the drop-down menu. Please do not ask your institution to send your academic record to our office electronically as they do not meet our document requirements.

Due to the recent restrictions issued by Canadian governments and the University of Toronto, all CES staff has been working remotely from November 23, 2020, and until further notice, except for two mail clerks who are processing mail packages on-site.

  • If your HEC package is sent to our office, it will be processed accordingly. You will receive a confirmation notification once your documents are digitized and matched to your application.
  • If your HEC package is still with you, we invite you to upload the scanned copies of your freshly HEC-attested documents to your application portal, instead of sending them by mail. To do so, you will need to log into your application portal and Locate AP0007 – CES Missing Documents in My Applications. Please ensure to upload both the front and the back sides of the HEC-attested documents with legible stamp numbers. 

Please note that new applicants do not need to use AP0007 form, they can upload the above required HEC-attested documents directly to their application before submission. 

We will attempt to verify your academic documents online directly with the Higher Education Commission (HEC). However, please note that applications are reviewed sequentially based on the date when the application and all required documents arrived at CES; this alternate measure will not grant you an accelerated processing time. 

I have a diploma from the State Technical Board/Nursing Examination Board, can I ask my college to send you my transcript electronically?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept the college record sent by your college electronically as they do not meet our documents requirement. You can find the detailed document requirements at Country Specific Academic Document Tool by selecting Pakistan from the drop-down menu. For diplomas awarded by the State Technical Board/Nursing Examination Board, we require your academic record sent by the Board.

If the State Technical Board/Nursing Examination Board does not have the capacity to send your documents to us electronically, we are regretfully unable to process your application at this time, using the standard authentication procedure. Your processing time will be paused for the entire lockdown.

That being said, we are trying to find alternative means to authenticate your credential and documents. We could initiate a direct inter-institutional verification procedure via e-mail. Please note that we will only carry this out near the end of your processing time and only if our regular in-office operations have not resumed. You will be notified by email once we initiate the direct inter-institutional verification procedure by email.
