New post-secondary school application process for Alberta to start in fall

LETHBRIDGE — All public post-secondary institutions in Alberta will be using a one-stop online application system by this fall.

LETHBRIDGE — All public post-secondary institutions in Alberta will be using a one-stop online application system by this fall.

ApplyAlberta has been developed by Alberta’s public post-secondary institutions in partnership with the Alberta government.

The University of Lethbridge recently welcomed a group of high school students and some family members from three local high schools to participate in the ApplyAlberta pilot project.

The university says the system passed with flying colours.

Through ApplyAlberta, students will be able to apply to multiple public post-secondary institutions and authorize the transfer of their Alberta high school and post-secondary transcripts between participating institutions.

Debi Sandul, associate registrar at the University of Lethbridge, says it took 20 minutes on average for students to enter personal information, pick their university, pay the application fee and submit it electronically for processing.

After they had completed this process, students and parents were invited to share in their experiences.

“One parent indicated that it was ‘so slick’ he wanted to apply, too! Another student indicated that the online process was very easy to follow..,” Sandul said.

Sandul added that the first person in the province to apply using the new ApplyAlberta system will be going to the University of Lethbridge.

It’s estimated that the number of applications through the new system once in full swing will be more than 100,000 students annually.
