Application for Admission

Posted: October 1, 2019 (Updated: Oct. 3, 2019)

Applications for high school and post-secondary transfer students opened on October 1, 2019*.

We currently have two application systems, please check the website to ensure you are filling out the correct form. If you have any questions, please contact us prior to submitting the application form.

Please note that some applicants have reported issues on the MyAlberta Digital ID site when trying to create an account. This is due to the high volume of traffic on that system. The issue has been reported and is being investigated; please continue trying to access the application system at a different time. There is no need to contact us at this time as we are not able to resolve this issue on your behalf. We appreciate your patience!

* This does not apply to the faculties of Medicine & Dentistry and Law, which are currently accepting applications.
