NASA Staff Offer

As a member of the University of Alberta’s Non-Academic Staff Association (NASA), you can apply for yearly funding toward learning opportunities and professional development through HRDF, the Human Resources Development Fund.

Now you can also take advantage of this special offer for NASA members from the Faculty of Extension:

Apply to any Extension continuing and professional education program and the application fee of $100 will be waived when you identify yourself as a NASA member (Graduate Studies programs are not eligible).

If you are looking for HRDF-eligible part-time study to either enhance your current work, or to prepare for an expanded or different role, this offer is a bonus $100 value toward your study over and above your approved HRDF funding.

The $100 program application fee waiver also applies if you choose to pursue any of our programs outside of HRDF funding.

Extension offers over 300 courses and 40+ programs in: 

  • — Art and Design
  • — Business and Leadership
  • — Communications
  • — Community Engagement
  • — Environmental Studies
  • — Health and Safety
  • — Indigenous Relations
  • — Public Sector

Select your course or program

Our courses are HRDF eligible

Just choose your course (no admission into a program required), submit the e-HRDF form and register in the Extension class once your funding is approved.

For more details on HRDF eligible learning opportunities and how to apply for funding, consult the Human Resources website:
