International Students

If you are an international student enrolled in a course that runs for 20+ hours, you must pay the domestic tuition plus an additional fee equal to 3.15 times the domestic rate. This surcharge does not apply to courses taken as part of our English as a Second Language (ESL) program.

Please note: As per Alberta Advanced Education, International students in Alberta are permitted to enrol only in post-secondary programs and courses that are approved by the Ministry or have Ministry-recognized, third party, quality oversight. Continuing Education courses and programs (non-credit), with the exception of English as a Second Language (ESL) and Academic Upgrading, are not open to international students who hold a Study Permit issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). However, students on a visitor visa (studying in courses or programs of 6 months or less) or on a work permit are eligible to take Continuing Education courses and programs.

International Students who hold a Study Permit are required by the IRCC to enrol in Designated Learning Programs. NAIT credit programs (degree, diploma and certificate programs), Academic Upgrading and the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program are considered as Designated Learning Programs under the IRCC Study Permit program.
