General Report (also known as a document-by-document assessment)
The General Report describes the education completed and suggests the Ontario equivalency for each credential.
This type of report is recommended if you are applying to a Graduate Certificate program or any program that requires a postsecondary diploma or degree for admission.
Please note that this type of report does not contain any information about the courses completed nor the comparable credit value or grade for each course.
Secondary School Comprehensive Report (also known as secondary school course-by-course)
The Secondary School Comprehensive Report describes the education completed outside Canada at a level comparable to the secondary school level in Ontario and suggests the Ontario equivalency. This report also provides a list of all courses/subjects completed at a level comparable to the grade 12 level in Ontario with the equivalent credit values and grades.
This type of report is recommended for you if you are applying to a Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma or a degree program which requires grade 12 courses for admission.

Postsecondary Comprehensive Report (also known as course-by-course)
The Postsecondary Comprehensive Report describes the postsecondary education completed outside Canada, suggests the Ontario equivalency for each credential and provides a list of all postsecondary courses/subjects completed with both the equivalent credit value and grade.

If you apply for a report on the basis of interim grades, and later submit final grades, there will be an additional fee to update your report.
