Application Assessment

Typically your application will take 4-6 weeks to process. An Admission Advisor may contact you by email or phone throughout the application process. Your prompt response lets us review your university application so that you can continue planning for your future. 

Once all documents have been submitted and evaluated, CUE notifies applicants electronically via email of their admissibility.

To confirm your offer of admission and ensure that you do not lose your acceptance, you will need to accept your offer by the deadline indicated in your Offer of Acceptance by paying the required registration deposit (Please see 5.6 of the Academic Calendar for refund information)

As of January 22, 2024, a Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) may be required to apply for a study permit. If you require a PAL, Concordia University of Edmonton will request one from the Province of Alberta once you have accepted your offer of admission and paid your registration deposit. Once your PAL is available, the university will send an email with the attached PAL to the email address you used on your application.

For information about what is a Provincial Attestation Letter, and any other details, please visit the IRCC website.

Apply for a Study Permit

Eligible international students are issued an Offer of Admission. For applicants that do not require a PAL, you will be issued your acceptance letter along with your IRCC Letter of Acceptance for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) . You can use these documents to apply for a study permit.

If you require a PAL, once you have confirmed your offer of admission and paid your registration deposit, Concordia University of Edmonton will request your Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) from the provincial government. Once your PAL has been received, we will issue your IRCC Letter of Acceptance for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as well as your Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL). Please use these documents to apply for your study permit. If you have any questions about applying for a study permit, contact the International Office at international@concordia.ab.ca.
