Students with Alberta high school or Alberta post-secondary education: Through ApplyAlberta the University of Alberta is able to request your Alberta high school transcript from Alberta Education and post-secondary transcripts from participating Alberta institutions, on your behalf.

International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) transcripts are required for students who have taken courses in either curricula (refer to section below).

Note: You must submit transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended (college, university, technical institution) regardless of how long you attended or whether or not you completed all courses. All post-secondary transcripts are required, even if you believe they may not have a bearing on your admission or transfer credit. (If you previously attended the University of Alberta you are not required to resubmit your transcripts.)

Document deadline: The document deadline for most programs is June 15. Be sure to check your To Do List in Bear Tracks and the University Calendar.
