Despite the current situation with the global COVID-19 pandemic, at this time, we are still accepting and processing applications for incoming exchange for our Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters. Deadlines for Fall & Year-long exchanges starting in September have been extended to June 1, 2020. In light of expected delays in mail delivery services, we are also accepting exclusively electronic documents for all application packages. Please be aware, however, that all future exchanges to the University of Alberta will be subject to any restrictions or quarantine policies implemented by the University of Alberta or the Government of Canada moving forward. Applicants will be notified of any changes or updates as they become available.
