Your course registration will depend on the program you have been admitted to and the transfer credit you receive.
STEP 2: LOCATE YOUR ADMISSION PACKAGE
Your admission package should include your admission letter and a Transfer Credit Report. Please Note: Admission decisions are sent to your U of A email address. We no longer mail paper copies so remember to check your “@ualberta.ca” email account regularly.
Your admission letter from the Faculty of Science may include important details about your program. Any urgent deficiencies you need to meet or important notes and reminders will also be included with this letter.
The Transfer Credit Report (TCR) will list all courses that have been evaluated for transfer credit. If you received credit for a course it will be indicated on this report and the University of Alberta equivalent will be listed. TIP: Courses you have received credit for will be listed as “posted” on your transfer credit report.
These 2 documents are key to determining what courses are remaining in your program what to register for in your first year on our campus.
Once you have reviewed these documents you will need to find your program curriculum.

1. I received credit BIOL 2XX rather than BIOL 201. What does the “XX” mean?
Occasionally we see university-level courses that are similar to, but not exactly the same as courses we offer. We feel that the course material covered in these courses offer sufficient knowledge to qualify for credit, but since it is not exact we cannot assign direct credit to one of our university courses. In the case of BIOL 2XX, credit is being granted for a 200 level Biology course.
