1. Choose a program (or two)

Before you apply, browse program pages to find out what you'll study and what your future might look like when you're done. Take the time to explore your options. Most programs allow you to select a second-choice program within the same application. Make note of admission requirements for the programs you're most interested in.

2. Check admission requirements

We’ve created a checklist to guide you through a successful application. If you have questions about the admission process or admission requirements, make the Academic Advising Centre your next stop. Missing high-school prerequisites? Don't meet minimum grade requirements? Academic Advisors can explain your options and help you make a plan.

3. Submit your application

It’s always a good idea to apply early. When you apply early, you receive your admission decision sooner and, if problems or questions come up, you have the time you need to address them. After you apply, you need to track your status and make sure documents are submitted on time.

4. Explore funding options

You may be eligible for government student loans, grants, bursaries and scholarships. Some funding options, such as the loans, have to be paid back. But that's not the case with scholarships and bursaries—the funding you receive stays in your pocket.

5. Put your best foot forward

Many of the tasks you need to complete as a first-year student can be done weeks (even months!) ahead of time. At the new student orientation, you will discover all that MacEwan has to offer—to support your learning, but also to make sure you make the most of your university experience.
