What is ApplyAlberta?

ApplyAlberta is a new web-based application and transcript system that undergraduate applicants use to apply to Alberta public post-secondary institutions. Through this service applicants also authorize institution(s) to request the transfer of high school transcripts from Alberta Education and post-secondary transcripts from participating institutions.

The University of Alberta is one of 23 public post-secondary institutions in Alberta involved in the system.

Application Process

Most UAlberta undergraduate applicants will be directed to ApplyAlberta during the application process to create a personal and academic history profile. Applicants then complete the UAlberta portion of their application and submit payment directly to the University of Alberta.

Information entered in the applicant's ApplyAlberta profile is transferred automatically and displayed within the UAlberta application. Not all information from the ApplyAlberta profile will be re-displayed.

ApplyAlberta Transcript Authorization

When applying to undergraduate programs at the University of Alberta, applicants authorize the University of Alberta to obtain Alberta high school transcripts from Alberta Education, and transcripts from participating Alberta post-secondary institutions previously attended. There is no charge for this service.

NOTE: Depending on whether or not the Alberta institution is a participating member of ApplyAlberta, the University of Alberta may be able to obtain transcripts on behalf of the applicant, where required.

Applicants are responsible for obtaining transcripts from non-participating Alberta institutions, out of province institutions as well as institutions outside of Canada.

UAlberta applicants must refer to Bear Tracks to verify which transcripts they are responsible for obtaining and which the University of Alberta will request on the applicant’s behalf.

Currently, the University of Alberta is able to request transcripts from the following participating institutions:
