Applying for Credit Programs & Courses
All students applying for credit programs and courses must complete each step to ensure their application is processed successfully.
Step 1: Find out when to apply
In general, applications are accepted between October 1 and August 31 for credit programs and courses starting in the following Fall term. Many programs fill quickly, so early applications are encouraged. Select the program you're interested in for important dates and details.
Step 2: Submit your application
You must apply through the Alberta Post Secondary Application System (APAS). A non-refundable $115.00 processing fee must be paid when you submit your application. You can apply for up to two programs at the same time without paying a second processing fee – just indicate your first and second choice.
If you attended high school or post-secondary in Alberta, APAS will automatically request your official transcripts – you don't need to submit your transcripts separately.
Students attending high-school or post-secondary OUTSIDE Alberta
It is your responsibility to arrange for an official transcript to be sent to the Registrar's Office directly from the institution you attended. Your application cannot be processed without official transcripts.
- Applicants submitting Out of Country transcripts will be charged a $75 assessment fee.
Step 3: After you Apply
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive acknowledgement from NAIT by email. You will be assigned a Student Identification Number and instructions on creating an account for the MyNAIT Student Portal. All further communications from NAIT will be sent through the portal.
It is essential to check the portal on a weekly basis for ongoing communications from NAIT. Communications sent via the portal will include
- application status updates
- additional requests that may be required for processing your application, including
- a Career Investigation Report (if required)
- midterm or progress reports
- a deposit to hold your seat
