Q: If I am an international student do I have to disclose my academic records fully?

I have full privacy rights in Canada and want to use high school marks rather than post secondary marks?

Howard Berkson answered on Dec 8, 2013

It depends on who is asking for those records and why. Generally, a university does not have to admit you unless you provide all the academic information it requests. If you make a false statement on your application, you may be disciplined academically or subject to civil liability.
