University of Alberta Calendar

The Calendar is the university's major publication, and it includes admission procedures and deadlines, academic regulations, programs of study, academic standards, degree requirements, general university policies and codes, for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The Academic Schedule contains all major deadlines - such as when classes start and end - plus a monthly listing of academic events on campus.

Changes in degree program requirements apply only to new students and those readmitted to a faculty, unless stated otherwise. 

Continuing students should refer to the Calendar in effect at the time they were admitted or readmitted for the regulations governing their degree program requirements. Please refer to the University Calendar for complete details.

The updated version of the University Calendar is published each year on March 1.

Tips for Using the Online Calendar

  1. Use the Table of Contents on the left side of the online Calendar to navigate to specific sections of the Calendar.
  2. The Calendar Search (shown at the top of the left navigation) allows quick retrieval of Calendar content that matches your interests. To use the Calendar Search, simply enter a search keyword or phrase and press ENTER. The search will find any matching content in the calendar including courses, programs, faculties, departments or other narrative content.
  3. To print a page click the printer icon (upper right of Calendar page). The "Print Friendly" version will open up with just the content of the page in it (no navigation or header). If you click the print link on a "Print Friendly" page the browser will popup with the print dialog allowing you to print that page. If your browser does not support the print link you may need to use the operating system or web browser's built in print functions instead.
