Applying Frequently Asked Questions

Admission Requirements
I attended school in Alberta, how do I view my transcripts?

If you attended a public high school and/or a post-secondary institution within Alberta, you can create an "education account" on myPass. This will allow you to see your Alberta Education transcripts (called a Detailed Academic Report).The Detailed Academic Report will also show GED scores if you wrote the GED in Alberta.

I have already completed some post-secondary education. Will my post-secondary grades be considered?

Yes, applications are assessed based on whether or not they meet the Admission Requirements. Post-secondary courses that are assessed as equivalent or more advanced than high school courses will be considered. For example, if a high school English grade does not meet the admission requirements, a university-level English grade may be considered.

I applied last year to a program but did not attend. Can I use that application again?

Each application is specific to the program and term applied to, so you will need to submit a new application and pay the application fee.

What's the difference between a part-time and full-time student?

A part-time student is one taking less than a 60 per cent course load. Tuition and fees are calculated based on individual courses. Find out more on the Full-Time Course Credits page.
