Canadore College issues official documents digitally with MyCreds™
Nov 3, 2022
Canadore College officially joins the MyCreds™ National Network to offer students the virtual credential wallet owned by the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC).
Effective immediately, all current and former Canadore College students can request their transcripts to be issued to their MyCreds™ online portal. Graduates will have additional access to their digitized credentials and confirmation of graduation letters available upon graduation. Other official documents will be phased in over time.
“MyCreds™ provides a seamless experience for Canadore students and graduates who need to access and share academic documents,” says Jeannette Miron, Canadore College’s Registrar and Senior Director of Enrolment and Student Services. “This new platform will ease the process of providing transcripts and credentials to employers or other post-secondary institutions, all in a secure and reliable way.”
The MyCreds™ platform gives students private online access to their individual records as well as the authorization to share their information when and where needed. Documents and credentials issued through the portal can be easily and securely shared with employers, government, institutions and other third parties. All certified documents carry a digital signature that meets or exceeds all legal national and international standards.
“We are thrilled to see Canadore College join the MyCreds™ National Network,” says Don Duclos, CRALO Representative of the ARUCC Board. “With over 80% of student enrolments belonging to MyCreds™ participating institutions, the uptake by Ontario institutions has been remarkable. This initiative represents an innovative solution that supports student mobility as learners transition into, between, and beyond our colleges and into the workforce.”
The ARUCC MyCreds™ | MesCertif™ National Network is a shared service and platform that provides students and graduates access to a secure, online, password protected learner credential wallet. This virtual wallet allows them to view and share their verified and official transcripts, credentials, and academic documents in a digitized format on a 24/7 basis – anytime, anywhere. Secure, cryptographically signed documents can be sent conveniently and require no further verification. MyCreds™ is the first and only national bilingual system of its kind in Canada.
