From our students...

University of Calgary graduate

“As a former UofC student who sent countless applications to graduate and postgraduate programs and is now attending my third university, I cannot express how revolutionary MyCreds™ will be for student mobility. Being able to conveniently access all my credentials in one place is something I didn’t know I needed until I was in the process of applications. With MyCreds™, students won’t have to encounter the hassle of individually mailing transcripts to other schools within Canada, or worse, internationally. Applying to professional programs will now be easier than I ever thought possible. The more institutions on the network, the greater the benefit for every student. There is no going back from MyCreds™.”

Ryerson University summer student

MyCreds™ is a game-changer for students, graduates and alumni across the country. We – students – no longer need to order, mail, and protect hard-copy documents which are easily prone to damage or misplacement. Not only does MyCreds™ aid school admission processes, it can also simplify typical student tasks including submitting Proofs of Enrolment to banks for financial purposes, sending Official Transcripts for job applications, sending letters for government reasons, or simply sharing academic achievements with friends and family.”

From our schools...

With a network of well over 2M learners maximizing virtual wallets in the MyCreds™ Network, it makes sense to ensure smoother transitions for learners.

– Angelique Saweczko, University Registrar, University of Toronto

This partnership serves a dual purpose for us – the ability to share and receive secure digital wallets provides our students autonomous control and authenticity of their credentials and also promotes and protects the value of SAIT credentials and the organizational reputation for high-quality applied education.”

– Dr. Neera Arora, Registrar, Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT)

“The enormous benefit this platform gives our students by providing 24/7 access to their official documents is remarkable.”

– James D’Arcy, Registrar, University of Regina

The MyCreds™ credential wallet will allow us to continue to adapt in a meaningful way and provide the best experience possible for our students and alumni.

Cindy Mutchler, Registrar, Georgian College

Governments, employers, regulatory bodies and schools around the world no longer need to verify documents by mail now that the MyCreds™ virtual wallet is here.”

 Charmaine Hack, Project Chair, ARUCC; Registrar, Ryerson University
