Admitted Student Day

Unfortunately, due concerns about COVID-19, Admitted Student Day has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel this event was made after considering the Public Health Agency of Canada’s recommendations for assessing risk related to mass gatherings. We are taking a proactive response to the possible spread of COVID-19, and eliminating any events that may put our community at risk.

As a new U of A student, you're invited to Admitted Student Day! We want you to feel prepared and excited on your first day in September, so we planned a full day - just for you.

Join your future classmates on North Campus. You’ll get a sneak peak into life as a U of A student and enjoy lunch on us. At this event you’ll also get to:

  • Meet with current students and alumni
  • Explore campus with an organized tour
  • Attend your faculty’s session and learn more about your program
  • Ask our advisors your remaining questions before starting in September
  • Learn about funding options that are available to you and how to manage your finances
