How to Apply and Enrol to ESL


 

1. Before you apply

If you have a NAIT ID number, have it ready.

Have your passport and credit card ready.


 

2. Fill Out Application

Create your Student Profile. Record your User Name, Password, and NAIT ID.

Select one (1) term start date.

Pay non-refundable deposit. ($60 for Domestic students and $1000 for International students)

Please note: NAIT ESL cannot provide a Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) to international students at this time.  A PAL is a required document to apply for an initial study permit from outside of Canada. You can review who is PAL exempt here.

If you are not PAL exempt, you can only study ESL online from outside of Canada.

If you are in Canada and already have a study permit or a work permit, you are PAL exempt and can study ESL at NAIT.

Foreign nationals in Canada with a visitor visa may take one level of ESL without a study permit, as long as they can complete that level during their initial period of authorized stay (i.e. within their 6-month stay).  

Book your ESL Level Placement Test.

Get your Letter.

Take the ESL Level Placement Test.

Wait for test results to determine your ESL starting level.

After you've taken your Placement Test and your test results are in your portal, you will receive an email with a link to the Enrolment Form. Fill in this form and you will be enrolled in classes.
