Fees and funding

All students must pay an application fee. The application fee for international students is slightly higher to cover the cost of verifying international credentials. The application fee is non-refundable and is separate from tuition fees. Because this information is subject to change, please consult the calendar for the current fee amounts.

Because tuition fees are subject to regular review and adjustment, we recommend that you consult the tuition and general fees page. You must pay the amount of your tuition plus applicable general fees every semester. Questions regarding fees should be directed to enrolment services.

The differential applies to students who are not Canadian citizens or landed immigrants. The Alberta government funds university operations for Canadian students. International students are charged the differential to make up the government's portion of expenses. A full explanation of the policy can be found in the University of Calgary calendar.

First steps

Before you apply, you will need identification and your high school transcripts. Alberta students do not need to supply transcripts; the registrar's office can access them. International students whose transcripts are not in English may be required to supply translated documents. More information can be found on the undergraduate admissions page.

Congratulations! Acceptance to university is a milestone in your life that deserves a celebration. Once you are done celebrating, please read through your admission package carefully. You will need to accept or decline your admission through the university's portal. Detailed instructions will be in your admission package. More information is available through undergraduate admissions. After you complete your acceptance, you should contact the Undergraduate Science Centre for assistance in selecting courses.

You cannot appeal if your application was denied for failing to satisfy a calendar requirement. Under other circumstances, students may appeal their denied application. Please consult the appropriate section of the calendar for more information.
