Before you Apply

Find out when your program starts

Most programs start in the fall but some programs also begin in winter and spring. You'll want to know the start date for your program before you fill out your application.

Programs and courses

Apply early

Our programs tend to fill up quickly and because of this, we recommend that students apply well in advance.

Review your program admission requirements

Our programs have admission requirements that all applicants must meet, and some of these programs may also require you to complete non-academic selection criteria such as a career investigation, interview, mechanical aptitude test, etc.

Out-of-province transcripts

Admission requirements are listed based on the Alberta curriculum. Review the admission requirements by province to determine if you qualify.

Out-of-country transcripts

If your documents are from outside of Canada, you'll need to have an assessment to determine if you meet the admission requirements.

English proficiency

All applicants to SAIT must meet the English proficiency requirement. If you require upgrading, consider our English Language Foundations program.

Post-secondary transcripts

If your transcripts are from a Canadian post-secondary institute, they may be used to meet the admission requirements. For example, if you took a biology course in university, you'll likely be able to use it to meet a Biology 30 requirement.

Academic upgrading

If you don't meet the admission requirements for your program of choice, consider our Academic Upgrading program.

Admission testing

If you have previous knowledge in a subject needed for admission but don't have credit for the course, consider admission testing.

Investigate transfer credit

You may be eligible to receive transfer credit based on your previous post-secondary courses or informal, non-formal and experiential learning.

Estimate costs

It's a good idea to start budgeting early. You'll need to know your estimated tuition and supplies, living expenses, transportation costs, and — most importantly — how to pay for it.
