Visit Apply Alberta

Please Note: NAIT processes applications based on the first choice that the applicant selects. Ensure that the application is correct.


Tips for completing the application process

  • At the ‘Alberta Student Number’ screen, click ‘Yes’ if
    • you know the student's Alberta student number (this would be generated if they had submitted a previous application to NAIT) OR
    • the student has attended any school or post-secondary institute in Alberta or Lloydminster, Saskatchewan
    • Otherwise, click ‘No’
    • If you clicked ‘Yes’, the system will attempt to locate the existing Alberta Student Number, and may request additional information to do so. Click ‘Edit Profile and Restart’ if you made an error when entering your student's personal information; this will return you to an earlier stage in the application process. Click ‘Continue’ when the system locates the Alberta student number.
  • When entering the student's country of citizenship, be sure to use the student's passport-issuing country. If you do not select Canada, you will be asked to provide some additional information to determine your residency status.
  • If you enter you student's high school grades, please note that NAIT will still review their official transcripts to determine their actual grades in the document assessment.
  • When selecting the term and program the student would like to apply for, please also select a second choice if applicable as NAIT cannot add a second-choice application after the fact.
