Adjustments to the Fall 2020 Admissions Process

In order to provide clarity in a rapidly changing environment that has seen disruption of secondary and post-secondary school operations as well as final assessments and grading, the University of Alberta has made adjustments to admissions-related deadlines and document requirements. While these changes address many of the concerns and challenges we are hearing, we'd also like to reassure applicants, their families, and school counsellors that reasonable accommodations will be made for applicants whose learning environments have been disrupted.

Documentation/Final Marks

If an applicant (domestic or international) to an undergraduate or graduate program at the university is unable to provide final documentation due to school closures or exam cancellations resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Alberta will accept the grades and existing interim documents presented at the time of their initial offer as meeting the requirements to clear individual admission conditions.

English Language Proficiency (ELP)

The Duolingo English Test will be made available to all applicants to undergraduate and graduate programs as an additional option to demonstrate English Language Proficiency for Spring 2020, Summer 2020, Fall 2020, and Winter 2021 admission.

Tuition Deposit Deadline

The deadline for applicants to pay their tuition deposit has been extended from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020 . Students can begin registering in courses once their tuition deposit is received and processed.
