Effective today, Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) students and graduates will have 24/7 direct access to transcripts via the MyCreds™ platform. A second phase of the project will make additional academic documents available via MyCreds™ soon (e.g. acceptance letters and credentials).

The MyCreds™ platform is provided through the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) National Network.

Through MyCreds™, students will be able to access and share their academic documents with other colleges and universities, government, employers and third parties securely and conveniently. Documents issued through MyCreds™ are tamper-evident and cryptographically signed, making them authentic and official.

Stephanie Hale, University Registrar“At MSVU, we prioritize access and impact for all, and so we were keen to implement this new technology to make it easier for students and graduates to access the official documents they need as part of their academic and career journeys,” says Stephanie Hale, University Registrar at MSVU (pictured). “We’re thrilled that we can now offer a new, modern way for students and graduates to view, receive and share these documents.”

“The national registrars’ association, ARUCC, is excited to see Mount Saint Vincent University join in the ARUCC MyCreds™ national network,” says Romesh Vadivel, ARUCC MyCreds™ Project Board Director. “As one of the vanguard institutions in the province to launch on MyCreds™, students will immediately benefit from the access to their academic documents in real time, paving the way to support their journey to jobs and further studies.”

When students and graduates request a document from the MSVU Registrar’s Office (via the transcript request form), they will receive instructions on how to set-up their MyCreds™ account. There is an FAQ available on the MSVU website.
