Check Your Status

After you have submitted your application, you will have access to the UAlberta Launchpad portal to check your application status and review any checklist items for your program.

In addition to access to the UAlberta Launchpad portal, you will also be assigned a new UAlberta email address, a unique student number, and a Campus Computing ID (CCID). Your CCID and student ID numbers are issued as applications are processed. If you applied between October 3-18 you should receive your CCID within the next week (October 25).

Your CCID will grant you access to your email account, and to Bear Tracks.

UAlberta Launchpad

After you’ve applied, you will use this portal to upload documents, check your application status, review checklist items and more.

Bear Tracks

Bear Tracks is our online student service system. Log in with your student ID and CCID to apply for residence and / or scholarships and awards.

UAlberta email

Your UAlberta email address is the one we will use to correspond with you. You will be notified via email any time there is an update to your admission status. Some key emails may be sent to both your UAlberta and personal accounts.

Submit Outstanding Documents

Check your To-Do List in UAlberta Launchpad to see what outstanding documents and other items are still required, and ensure they are submitted by the deadline indicated.

ApplyAlberta applicants

Your final Alberta high school transcripts will be sent on your behalf when you apply through ApplyAlberta.

Out-of-province students

Your transcripts may not be transferred automatically. Please ensure they are sent to and received by the University of Alberta.

International students

Apply for a study permit.

If you are an international student currently studying in Canada, you must obtain a new study permit for post-secondary studies, even if you already have a high school study permit.

For more information on process and timing, including when to apply and when to expect to receive an offer, see Evaluation Process.

Change Program Priorities

In some cases, you may want to change which program(s) you've applied to, or which order you'd like them to be evaluated in, prior to any decision being made on your application (admit, waitlist, deny, hold). Applicants who wish to be assessed for a different program after a decision has been made on their application will need to submit a new application. If you are eligible to make a program or priority change request, the online form will be available to you in UAlberta Launchpad.
