When you Apply
Start your online application
When you begin an online application, you'll be redirected to ApplyAlberta — a centralized online application used by most Alberta post-secondary institutes.
Create an account
Create a Basic MyAlberta Digital ID account. Take note of your username and password, as you will need this information to access other Alberta Advanced Education services such as the Alberta student loan application.
- If you've used ApplyAlberta before Jan. 22, 2019, you'll have a SIAMS (Secure Identity and Access Management System) account.
- After you create a MyAlberta Digital ID account, transfer your current SIAMS account to your newly created MyAlberta Digital ID account. If you can't remember your SIAMS login information, contact their Helpdesk.
Find your Alberta Student Number (ASN)
All Alberta students are assigned an ASN number — find yours at the Learner Registry. If you have never been to school in Alberta, one will be issued for you when you start the application.
You will need to authorize SAIT to request your Alberta transcripts so your final grades are transferred electronically to us at no cost. After you write your diploma exams, your final transcript will be sent over.
- If you went to school outside of Alberta, find out how to submit your transcripts and documents.
Fill in your personal and academic profile
After you finish completing your personal information, you'll be required to enter your academic history. This includes any high school and post-secondary institutes you've attended and the grades you have — or will — achieve in the subjects required for admission to your program of choice.
If you're currently taking — or planning to take — courses required for admission to your program, you need to enter your anticipated final grades in the High School Courses and Marks section. We will use these marks to determine program eligibility before your final grades are available.
You don't need to enter grades for courses you've already completed as we'll receive your transcript to-date right away.

If you've already completed a course required for admission, enter your final grade. We will use these marks to determine program eligibility before your final transcript is available.
Enter the schools you've attended in the High School and Post-Secondary history section.
You don't have to enter grades for courses you've completed or are currently taking. You will need to fill out an Anticipated Final Grades form after you finish the online application, and we will use this to determine program eligibility before we get the results of your document assessment.
Choose your program
Select the application type for your program — full-time for most programs — and choose the admission term when your program starts. You will need to know when your program starts — fall, winter or spring — because if you choose the wrong admission term, your program of choice will not be listed under the Planned Course of Study options.
Submit your application
You'll need a Visa or Mastercard to pay the $75 application fee.
Provide your transcripts or anticipated final grades
If you did not complete the High School and Marks section in the online application and you're currently taking a course required for admission or waiting for a document assessment, make sure you fill out an Anticipated Final Grades form. We will use this to determine program eligibility until we receive your final transcripts and documents.
After you apply
About a week after you apply, we will send you an email with your SAIT ID number and instructions to monitor your application.
