After consultation, most departments require you to complete the central graduate studies online application. The application takes 30-40 minutes to complete. A $100 CAD non-refundable application fee is required.
Please note: When applying online you will be required to create an account using an active and valid email address (home, business or otherwise). If you have previously applied to Grad Studies and used this particular email address before, you cannot use the email address again and create a brand new account. Rather, you will require a password re-set if you have forgotten the password. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a password reset.
PASSWORDS: Please note - the grad web application system is strict about what passwords you can create. Please make sure the password you chose is only 8 characters, and does not contain special characters (i.e. *&^$%, etc). Begin your password with an alpha character and use only a combination of letters and numbers.
Also, if you have previously worked, applied or attended the University of Alberta before, you will likely have a student i.d. number. Please make sure you use this 7 digit i.d. in the application where requested. If you do not have a u of a student i.d. number, please leave the field blank when applying.
