1: Activate your CCID and sign up for your UAlberta email account
The University of Alberta uses email as an official means of communication with students. For this reason, it is important that you regularly check your UAlberta email account. To set up your email and other university computer accounts, you need to first activate your CCID (this is your Campus ID). Your CCID was sent to the email address you provided when you first applied to UAlberta. Click here
to activate your CCID.
2: Get to know BearTracks
is UAlberta's online, automated student record system. Access BearTracks with your activated CCID.
BearTracks allows you to:
- Monitor the status of your application
- Register for your courses
- Check your fees' account balance
- Update your contact information
- Apply for scholarships/awards
3: Find your enrollment date
This is the actual date you can begin your course registration. You can locate your enrollment date on your BearTracks landing page under the Academics tab. We recommend you choose your courses as close to the registration date as possible because some classes fill up quickly.
4: Accept your offer
New to U of A students: In order for you to finalize your admission and course registration you will need to Accept your Offer on BearTracks and pay a non-refundable $500 tuition deposit.
Instructions- How to Accept your offer and Pay the Tuition Deposit
Current U of A students: In Bear Tracks, you must accept your offer of admission to your new program and you must transfer your course registration. Your registration can be transferred one of two ways. If your current registration includes courses added by a department your registration may be lost if you choose option two.
