Notices and Deadlines


  • Students impacted by B.C. Teachers' Federation strike: The University of Alberta admission policy requires that all prospective students applying from high school submit their final transcripts containing all required courses by August 1, 2014. In order to accommodate the situation B.C. high school students in non-traditional methods of study face as a result of the strike, the University of Alberta will extend its document deadline to August 25, 2014 for these applicants.
    • Coursework not included on official transcripts cannot be considered. The University of Alberta is unable to provide admission to any student who does not submit final grades for all required subjects by the August 25 extended deadline.
    • We are sympathetic to students whose admission decision will be negatively impacted by this situation, however the University of Alberta cannot amend its admissions requirements at this time.
    • Students who are inadmissible for the fall 2014 intake can reapply next year.

      Update: The Office of the Registrar has received final grades from the Ministry of Education for BC/Yukon high school applicants. If you have any questions or concerns about your transcripts, please contact Student Connect at 780.492.3113.
  • Application opening date change: For high school students applying for the 2015-16 term, the opening date for application for admission is October 1, 2014.
