Students enrolled at other universities may be able to attend the University of Alberta for one term or one academic year as a visiting student. The purpose is usually to receive course credit that can be transferred back to their degree at their home institution.
Note: Visiting students are not part of an exchange and pay tuition fees at the University of Alberta. See Incoming Exchange Students if you are coming to UAlberta under a formal exchange agreement.
Students interested in undergraduate coursework should consult with the appropriate faculty; not all faculties allow visiting students. Further details on admission requirements for visiting students can be found in the Undergraduate Programs section of the University Calendar, under the specific faculty.
Students interested in graduate coursework should consult with the appropriate graduate department; not all departments allow visiting students. Further details are available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research.
