Registration Tips

The following information is for students planning on attending Fall 2015. If you are a current student please email arts.undergrad@ualberta.ca with your registration questions.

If you've had a chance to go through the Arts website, you've seen the vast array of programs and courses available to you. And while the prospect of exploring your academic interests and pursuing your career goals is an exciting one, it can also be a little daunting to choose your classes for first year.

*Remember, new-to-the U of A students who are offered admission must pay a non-refundable $500 Tuition Deposit in order to become eligible to register in courses. Students can pay this deposit on Bear Tracks, and it will be credited towards their final tuition amount. This tuition deposit confirms a student's place at the U of A.
