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.
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 many of these programs also require you to complete selection criteria such as a career investigation, interview, mechanical aptitude test, etc.
Admission requirements are listed based on the Alberta curriculum. Review the admission requirements by province to determine if you qualify.
If your documents are from outside of Canada, you'll need to have an assessment to determine if you meet the admission requirements.
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.
If you don't meet the admission requirements for your program of choice, consider our Academic Upgrading program.
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.
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.
