Before you apply
1. Check program availability
You will need to check admission dates and deadlines to be sure your program is still accepting applications.
2. Submit only one application per term through ApplyAlberta
Most programs will allow you to select a second choice program within the same application. Your second choice will be evaluated if you are deemed ineligible or placed on a waitlist for your first choice program. If you submit a separate application for the same term, your first application will be withdrawn.
3. Pay your non-refundable Application fee
A non-refundable application fee must be included with your application. The application fee must be paid each time an application for admission is submitted.
Online applications are processed through ApplyAlberta, an application service used by most post-secondary institutions in Alberta. The ApplyAlberta website can be used by anyone applying to MacEwan University, including out-of-province and international students.
Potential delays in accessing ApplyAlberta
Individuals who need to create a new myAlberta Digital ID (MADI) account to submit an application to MacEwan University through ApplyAlberta may experience delays. The delays are directly related to the unprecedented number of Albertans who are creating verified MADI accounts to access the Alberta Government’s recently introduced Emergency Financial Assistance programs related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A queueing service is being implemented to manage capacity for account verification. The queueing service will take users during high demand periods to a ‘waiting’ page that will indicate the number of people ahead of them in the queue, and their estimated wait time. The queueing service will automatically forward the user to the verify step once their position in the queue becomes available.
If you have any questions or concerns about your application to MacEwan University, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of the University Registrar, firstname.lastname@example.org.
