Congratulations! You've been accepted to Mount Allison.
Wondering what's next? We want to make this process as easy as possible for you. Here are the steps you will need to take on your way to arriving on campus in September.
Remember, it's important to check your Mount Allison e-mail regularly. Once you have been accepted to Mount Allison, this is how we will communicate important information to you.
1. Accept your offer of admission and scholarships
Simply pay your registration deposit ($100 for Canadian citizens and permanent residents; $250 for international students) and this will confirm your intent to attend Mount Allison and any scholarship offers. Once deposit is received and processed, the deposit confirmation will be e-mailed to your mta.ca e-mail account. Deadline: May 3
2. Apply for bursaries
All incoming full-time students who have financial need are eligible to apply for entrance bursaries. Deadline: March 1 — any applications received after March 1 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
3. Apply to live in residence
All first-year students are guaranteed a room assignment. We base your residence room assignment priority on the day you pay your registration deposit (see #1). Plus, you will need to pay your $500 residence deposit to be considered for the early-bird room draw. Early-bird residence application deadline: March 1. All applications submitted after March 1 are assigned on a rolling basis.
4. If you are an international student, apply for your Canadian Study Permit
International students should use the Letter of Acceptance provided by the University to apply for their study permit. You should apply as soon as possible, as the process can take some time.
5. If you have a learning disability and/or need accessibility services, contact the Meighen Centre
If you are a student with a disability or condition and feel that you may require services, supports, or accommodations, you are encouraged to contact The Meighen Centre once you have been admitted. Contacting the Centre early in the process will ensure that supports can be put in place to ensure your success.

6. Submit your mid-year transcript
If you have applied with your Grade 11 transcripts and have already been offered early admission, submit your mid-year transcript to confirm your offer of admission and any scholarship offers. These transcripts do not need to be official. Entrance scholarship deadline: March 1 — any applications received after March 1 will be considered for scholarships on a case-by-case basis.
7. Visit campus
If you would like to visit campus or have questions you would like answered in person, attend Open House or book a campus visit anytime. Our next Open House is March 1, 2019.
8. Join the Mount Allison Class of 2023 page on Facebook
Once you get your MtA e-mail address, connect with the Mount Allison community before you step foot on campus. Get to know your future classmates and housemates, tell the group more about yourself, and ask lots of questions.
9. Register for courses
Course registration opens for new students on Monday, May 13, 2019. You will receive a course registration package in the mail and can receive assistance with the process by visiting Mount Allison's RegHelp. Your registration deposit is required for access (see #1).
10. Submit your final transcript
When your final grades are in, your official final transcript needs to be sent directly to us from the issuing institution via any of the following way:
