Disclosing registered certificate program ?(Unattended by now)

Recommended Posts

Hi

Last month I decided to register a 6-8 months fulltime certificate diploma program at a private college near my home due to my personal interest. It won't start in late Nov.

Now, my question is, should I include this in my academic history?

Apparently, I don't have any transcript and I doubt I will have any at the very beginning of the program.    

For Ontario law schools, I assume it would be unnecessary because the course won't start before the application deadline(Nov 1st) and I didn't find any relevant information about this on Ontario law schools' pages.

However, for some law schools, such as Uof Manitoba and UNB, they ask for full disclosure of academic establishment "you have attended". Not sure if I should include this certificate program into the academic history category. 

I don't want to hide anything and I didn't give much thought when I register the course, just purely personal interest. I thought I could keep myself occupied while waiting for the application result. 

Now I really don't want to mess up my application for this.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Official transcripts are required for each university, college, CEGEP, junior college, graduate school or other postsecondary institution at which you have registered.



From OLSAS.  It should be included, with the start date.

Oh no

So I just gave myself lots of trouble. Didn't even realize this could affect my law school applications.

How can a college issue transcript before its student actually start its courses?

It can't. Just indicate what the start date is and the law schools will realize that a transcript isn't possible. I can't see how this would affect your apps. At the end of the school year, when final transcripts will be due to the law school you will (hopefully) be attending, you can request one from this program, too. I wouldn't worry about this giving you 'lots of trouble'.

I called OLSAS today with the same question. The asked me to get the college to send OLSAS a letter saying that they can not provide transcripts. And they said the deadline for "these sort of documents" is later than November 1st. so I shouldn't worry if it doesn't get there by November 1st.

Thanks so much for your replies!

Really settled my mind.
