Programs & Applying

[Find Your Program & Apply]


The University of Alberta is developing a new online Graduate application system, scheduled to begin accepting applications on December 1, 2014.
Some departments at the U of A are no longer accepting applications in the current system and will only begin accepting applications again after December 1, 2014,  when the new system is operational. 
If you are applying on or prior to December 1, 2014, by 12:00 midnight MDT, you will be applying through the current, and soon to be retired, online application system.  Our current system has no provision for uploading required documents, so applicants using the current system will need to provide hard copies of pertinent documents to the department they apply to sent via mail.  Applicants using the current system will have 60 days to provide all documents.
In the new system, applicants must upload all required documents before they can complete and submit the application.  Please make sure before you begin applying in the new system (scheduled to begin operating Dec. 1, 2014) that you have all requested documents available in pdf format for upload.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
