Important Information

All students are advised to make exclusive use of their UAlberta email account throughout their time at the University of Alberta. The university uses electronic communication with its students and applicants in lieu of older paper-based processes. This ensures communications are timely and accurate. Because of this every new student in the department, upon being admitted, is automatically signed up for both of the department's listservs (eps-student and eps-events) through the UAlberta e-mail account assigned to them.

International Students 

Admitted students who are not Canadian citizens or Canadian permanent residents must apply for a study permit. It is highly recommended that students begin the study permit process as soon as their admissions letter is available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. Please note the University of Alberta issues electronic admissions letters which are available via the graduate student Application Portal.

If you have any questions concerning this please contact the Graduate Administrator.
