Course restrictions 

Before you register for courses in Bear Tracks, it is important to review the restrictions below. 

In some cases, the exchange agreement between UAlberta and your home institution will specify which courses you can and cannot take.

If the exchange agreement does not specify, then you may be eligible to take any UAlberta course, although there are some exceptions and restrictions. 


  • If your home institution has a student exchange agreement with only one UAlberta Faculty, then you can expect to take courses only within that Faculty.
  • There is no guarantee of registration in the courses you may want or need.  Courses may be full, not offered every term, or you may not be eligible for certain courses. We recommend that incoming exchange students prepare a list of alternate courses to refer to if you first choice of course(s) is not available.
