University of Alberta Updates

 Application for admission to the University of Alberta opened October 1 and is available at uab.ca/apply. Students are encouraged to apply early as admission is competitive and space in our programs is limited. Applications will be reviewed as they are received and offers are administered on a rolling basis. If a student is not immediately admissible to their program(s) of choice, they will be reassessed if/when new information is received or if our admission parameters change.

To assist students with the application process, we have updated two of our key websites, uab.ca/start and uab.ca/apply. We are also creating a series of videos to guide students through the application process, starting with ‘Preparing to Apply’, which can also be found on uab.ca/apply. In addition, we are hosting Submitting Your Application workshops to further aid students and answer their questions.

Here are a couple quick reminders about the University of Alberta application:

  • Students self-report their own marks.
  • Students are asked to report all grade 11 and grade 12 courses.
  • Students can pick two programs on their application.
Students can apply for residence on the same application.
