Helping You Access The Information You Need


REQUEST A VIRTUAL VISIT from the StFX Recruitment Team 

High school guidance counsellors, and other members of a student's school, play a pivotal role in students’ lives, offering advice and support at a time when they are making critical life decisions. At StFX, we recognize and respect the work that you do in helping students chart their future.

Important: Sending multiple transcripts in one file causes delays to student assessment.  When sending transcripts to us at, to avoid delays in assessing students for admission, please, send each student transcript and/or course list individually in PDF format using the following naming convention:

"Last name, first name - transcript"  or "Last name, first name - course list"  (depending on what you are submitting)

In addition, the following information is designed to consolidate the links to the answers to the most frequent questions that Guidance Counsellors and students may have about StFX.

If you need information that is not included here, please contact us: 1.855.396.7839 or email
