Arrival & Orientation

Students can always have their questions answered.

International students are encouraged to arrive in Edmonton at least two weeks before the first day of class. An adjustment period is needed since the information from a new country and a new city can be overwhelming. It is also a good idea to arrive early and familiarize yourself with the city and the campus.

Here are important links to review prior to your arrival:
